    Well...I updated both my computers (17" iMac & iBook 500mHz) to 10.2.5 last week...all seemed to be alright...until today. For some reason, internet has become extremely twitchy on both computers. In fact, safari completely refuses to load MacRumors, and Camino only loads the front page after 2+ minutes. On the other hand, the forums load at a normal rate. This is on a T1 Line (campus)! There are several other websites on which I am experiencing problems (including MacSlash), and I cant seem to trace the problem. We've rebooted our Airport, I switched to dialup (direct, not through airport)....Im not sure what do. Im experiencing this on both computers, as well, not just one. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

    is it still happening? this afternoon, macrumors was loading really slowly for me (on my 10.2.4 machine w/ safari v60).

    maybe it's not 10.2.5.

    Lots of variables here...

    Have you heard of any issues w/ the on-campus network? Have you tried connecting from other places on campus?
    Are you having other connection difficulties (email, filesharing, etc.) or is it just WWW?

    UPDATE: Ok, doing further research, it seems that it must be the school network...I have not heard anything, but using my parents CompuServe account from this computer lets the pages load normally in all web browsers. (Yes, I know, they should get away from CS, but I cant seem to convince them of that...) Strange that it only affects a few websites, though. Thanks anyways...

    Why do you say that? I still maintain my CompuServe account for nationwide, on-the-road dialup access and it works perfectly.

    Of course, I'd be happier if they weren't owned by AOL, but you can't have everything... ;)
