    Me and my partner have an office in my home, and are using a wireless, connection for our internet , He has a macbook, and I have a 13" pro, his is the last nvida 9400, and mine is the new 320m mbp.

    We have been dealing with various minor issues, with them, but now his internet connection is slow to occasionally non existent. I have tried the 4.2.2.x solution, with no results.

    Than I tried turning his wireless on and of, and a few other things I have lost track .

    The only thing that seems to help was, unplugging the router and rebooting, but then it slowed down again. We had a land line phone call, but, I don't know how that would only mess up 1 computer and not the other.

    Any Ideas, or do we need to call apple, or go to the mac store

    Try this:
    1. Download OnyX (a free maintenance utility).

    10.6 Snow Leopard Link:

    10.5 Leopard Link:

    10.4 Tiger Link:

    2. Open OnyX and Click Cancel on these two Alert Panels:
    -Cancel the S.M.A.R.T. Box
    -Cancel the Startup Volume Box

    3. Enter your Password

    4. Click on the Cleaning Tab

    5. In each tab, within the Cleaning Tab, execute the command. Check all the boxes in each tab. When its finished in that tab, it will ask you to reboot. Say NO. Go on to the next tab and repeat until all tabs, within the Cleaning Tab, are done. THEN REBOOT.

    downloaded, tried it and nothing unfortunately.

    It detects my network, and everything, but when you open safari or firefox, it just stalls out.

    I went in and changed the profile name and it at first seemed to fix the problem. But after he left for the day and went home to his own network, and it worked fine then, (as well as from what he told me it worked there, but not here)
    Now hes back and it is doing the same thing, on both safari, and now firefox is in offline mode.

    We also noticed his wifi signal seems to be fluctuating in strength and showing an exclamation point.
