I'm having really slow internet speeds for the last couple days. I know it my airport because i directly connected to the DSL modem and it was blazing. I have no idea why it's so slow. anyone know of any solutions or having the same issue?

Are you getting good reception with it? Are there other machines hooked up to the AirPort network? Do the internet settings for the AirPort match the ethernet settings of your Mac? :)

i would also appreciate any useful feedback. i have both a pc and my mbp connected to the airport. the connection is stable but the speed on the mac is terrible whereas on the pc, it is very fast.

not sure what the problem could be. my airport firmware has just been updated but that didn't help at all.
