ADO.NET slow connection to remote server

4 New Member
I have a MySQL database on a remote server.

when i connect to it using Heidisql it open pretty instantly

but.. using an ADO connection string

server=xxx.xxx. 218.237;db=xxxx x2;driver={MySQ L ODBC 3.51 driver};uid=myi d;pwd=9997xxx

it takes about 20 seconds to connect - thereafter everything works fast enough

I can even use an ODBC DSN - the ODBCtest button is quick, but usa ADO to connect via the ODBC is just as slow

anyone know why??? please

I am using Visual Basic.NET 2003

This is a cross-post from the .NET group since it looks like it may not be ..NET. New information since the original post is that is the wireless network is enabled and connected the socket connect time is 4x longer! Disable wireless and it is back down to just very slow. Any ideas are appreciated. -----
