Maybe you can try connecting to sites with their ip address
and see if it loads same speed as w2k than using www. If it
does then there must be something not right with dns?

All indications point to DNS. It's difficult to make comparisons between IP vs. hostname surfing, because many complex sites draw from several servers.

My favorite benchmark is CNN. This site pauses for several second durations multiple times, with the browser saying: "Resolving host..."

Good day!
