Visual Basic [VB] >> Open URL and read page

Hi
In vb 6 there was a control you could use to open a url, set the time
out and read the resulting page.
how is this done in VB.Net?

Thanks

Visual Studio354

Public Function LoadTextFile(ByVal Url As String) As String
Dim wrq As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(Url)
Dim wrp As HttpWebResponse = _
DirectCast(wrq.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
Dim sr As New StreamReader(wrp.GetResponseStream)
Dim Text As String = sr.ReadToEnd()
sr.Close()
wrp.Close()
Return Text
End Function
