    Yesterday my macbook's wifi started getting really slow to the point where it takes 10 minutes to load a webpage. I reseted my router and everything but it was still slow. Then I noticed that my iMac and Ipod touch had full internet speed and everything. What happened? I didn't do anything different from my normal routine at all.

    I was running on old firmware for my macbook and decided to attach an ethernet cable to get the latest and greatest but it didn't fix the problem. Help!

    If connecting with an ethernet cable works fine, try resetting your AirPort by turning it off and then deleting and preferences.plist from Macintosh HD\Library\Preferences\SystemConfiguration\.

    I recall seeing this very problem many times on this forum... It seems like 10.5.6 is the problem here...

    If it is, then you will have to wait for 10.5.7 like everyone else.. :(
