    A couple of days ago I began to notoce it was taking a long time for pages to load. In my mind, I just blamed Comcast. Today it was getting bad, but my wife's Mini was loading pages fine.

    So I plugged an ethernet cable into my iMac and pages were loading immediately. Looks like there was a wireless slowdown. A reboot has brought 90% of my speed back, but still not where it was before.

    So why would one computer (iMac) experience a slowdown and not the other (Mini). I really had never used wireless as my main connection before I got a Mac and an Extreme, but they seemed to work so well, I never connected the cable.

    Seems like I may have to. Is this normal?

    Perhaps you have some sort of radio interference near your iMac. Do you have a cordless phone near your iMac?

    Also, it could be an issue with your iMac's wireless card/antenna.
