    It could be any number of things. Describe the ways in which it is slow - for instance, does it try to load pages in your browser and hang? Does your connection suddenly drop?

    It could be a DNS issue.

    Its just slow at everything involving the internet. Going from one page to another, even posting threads on this forum take up to 30 secs. When I get on my HP laptop and open the same website and then go to another web site at the same time my HP is there about 5-10 secs before my macbook!
