I've heard about similar issues twice before, both times on new Windows 
machines. One person solved it by reinstalling the OS, but that isn't an 
ideal solution. I'm not sure what happened in the second case. Is this a 
Dell machine? I think that was the common denominator in both cases.

If he's stalling out before your page even loads, it isn't a revlet 
issue. Sounds more like a DNS issue. What happens if you give him the IP 
numbers of the URL instead of using the standard named URL? That would 
bypass DNS.
