    Hello folks,

    Just out of the blue, my internet connection somehow just went really, really slow. I have an iMac running OS X Snow Leopard, and I've tried everything I can think of to get it back to running normally, from deleting my System Configuration, to re-setting my router, updating the firmware on my router, to repair my Disk using the OS X cd, but nothing seems to get the connection back.

    The interesting part about it, is that I have a Windows partition on my iMac, and through that, the connection is totally fine - no problems what so ever, but on my girlfriends MacBook, we're having the same, really slow connection.

    We also have a Logitech Squeezebox to stream internet radio/iTunes, and that works a charm too - I seriously cannot figure out what the problem could be.

    Is there anyone who can help me out? I'm a Freelance - working from home, so the internet connection is really essential for me.

    Thank you

    I've just tried to ping google to see what that came up with, and got this results - which look pretty good.

    However, after 5 mins, I ping'ed it again, and I get these results:

    Can anyone help me out with this, I can't figure out what's happening after 5 mins?
    Thanks
