    I got home yesterday and my internet was running alright, but I noticed it hiccuping and not loading pages as fast and smoothly as it has the day before. Today, ahhh! It has taken me 2 minutes + to load an ebay page. I checked my dad's PB and it was loading pages great. My dad isn't really a tech expert, he just use's his PB for work.

    Any pointers?

    It's really hard to be a tactical ebay user, when load times are horrendous. :(

    reset safari? or clear the cache.

    or if you are using ethernet try the cable your fathers PB is using

    Power down the router??

    One of my clients Mac Mini took a big hit on internet speed for apparently no reason. I go over to check the situation - turns out that just turning off the modem fixed the problem!
