Some sites are slow to open in browser, or do not displayed at all

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Incorrect interface priority

c:\>netsh interface ipv4 show interfaces

Idx  Met   MTU   State        Name
---  ---  -----  -----------  -------------------
  2   10   1500  connected    venet0
  1   50 4294967295  connected    Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1
  3   10   1500  connected    venet1

In the example above, venet0 and venet1 have the equal metrics but priority of venet0 is higher due to lower index.

The browser is firstly waiting for a response from DNS servers of backnet interface. When accessing a web site with a lot of attached redirection links it may not be displayed due to timeout.
