Here's a function I wrote for what you're asking, if I understand you.
For this to work you need Imports System.Net and Imports System.IO.

Public Function GetSource(ByVal URL As String) As String

Dim vSource As String = ""
Dim HTTPRequest As HttpWebRequest
Dim vURL As Uri
Dim sr As StreamReader
Dim Ln As String
Dim rs As HttpWebResponse
Dim inStr As Stream
Dim line As String
Dim bodyReader As StreamReader

vURL = New Uri(URL)
HTTPRequest = WebRequest.Create(URL)
HTTPRequest.AllowAutoRedirect = True
HTTPRequest.MaximumAutomaticRedirections = 10
HTTPRequest.Method = "GET"
HTTPRequest.ProtocolVersion = New Version(1, 0)
HTTPRequest.Timeout = New TimeSpan(0, 0, 30).TotalMilliseconds
HTTPRequest.UserAgent = "Mozilla/3.0 (compatible; Enigmatic/1.0)"

rs = HTTPRequest.GetResponse()
vURL = rs.ResponseUri
inStr = rs.GetResponseStream()

If Not (inStr) Is Nothing Then
bodyReader = New StreamReader(inStr)
line = bodyReader.ReadLine()
Do While (line) Is Nothing = False
vSource &= line & vbCrLf
line = bodyReader.ReadLine()
bodyReader = Nothing
End If

rs = Nothing
HTTPRequest = Nothing
Return vSource

End Function
