    So as of late my powerbook g4 1.67 ghz running tiger hasn't be "realizing" it's connected to the internet as quickly as it used to.
    What i mean by this is when my mac is a sleep and i wake it up, it'll automatically reconnect to my router, but when i try to load a page in safari it says i'm not connected to the internet, sometimes for about 30-45 seconds and then FINALLY it'll load a page.
    I have roommates in the house with all different macs, none with my exact specs but someone has an ibook running tiger so i figure that's close enough. Also a mbp running tiger.
    i'm using an airport express that's extending wireless signal and my provider is Verizon FiOs.
