    Hi guys- I'm new.... and a girl- o be nice.

    My ibook G4 is very slow when surfing.. I have spoken to my provider (sky) who tested the line and connection. I am getting 6meg.. they then told me to

    network utilities->netsat->display state of all current socket connections

    apparently there shouldnt more than 10.. but theres loads..

    what can I do to sort this out..
    :apple:
    thanks

    I just ran the same test and have far more than 10. My connection is 10 mbit down and 1 up. Always seems fast to me.

    Maybe explain what you're doing when it's slow.

    Are you connected through a router or hub of any kind?

    I was connecting wirlessly with a netgear router, but I am now using one of the ethernet ports and bypassing the wirless..

    did that, was on the line for nearly an hour wife a very helpful young lady. We moved the router to each of the 3 lines in my flat (incl main line). At each line I was receiving my subscribed 5meg...we then looked at applications>utilities>network utilities>netstat>display the state of all current socket connections> then this-

    apparently this amount of connections is far too many. I have tried to repair permissions using disk utility. It is asking for an administrator password. I have checked in system preferences> my account my own user name & password and this is not working.

    What is going on.. anyone?
