I recently moved house, and I have set a new cable internet connection. System preferences shows that: "Built-in Ethernet is currently active and has the IP address XXX. You are connected to the internet via Built-in Ethernet." The problem is that the internet pages time out in both Safari and Internet Explorer. The strange thing is that Apple Mail, MSN Messenger and file sharing networks function at a rate which the activity monitor shows to be around 60kb/s. Surely this is enough for web pages to load. I use a different connection at work, and travel a lot through work using wifi to connect. I have never come across such a contradiction before. Can anyone advise?
