I have a new Airport (not the gigabeat one though). Well lately it seems to be running slow. I'm about 10 to 15 ft away from it at any time, there is nothing blocking it. Anyone know why this might be? I'm not downloading anything, just surfing the web, posting, junk like that. I live in an apartment complex, could someone be stealing my connection? I have it encoded too...this is really getting to me. Cause sometimes, like this page for instance, it will take up to a minute or more to open...Not a happy camper when I pay for 6mbps.

Could be interference. Are you running in 5GHz mode or 2.4GHz? If 2.4GHz, this is known to be a problem with many cordless phones.
I don't use a cordless phone, just a cell phone. how can I switch modes? Probably a neighbor using one.
