Received my first Mac in the mail today.. (well, got delivered).. For now I have a couple of burning questions.. if anyone is around to help out a beginner? Q#1 When I turned it on.. it immediately connected to the net.. but I'm not sure to 'whose' net.. (a neighbor perhaps, who doesn't have any security settings set up??) I have a linksys router which is set to only allow listed items access.. I changed the router settings to add the new mac.. I turned some things off and on.. Did some diagnostics on the mac.. it says everything's fine.. I connected to my own router.. but can't access the net any more.. Therefore, I don't think I'm really connected? Either that or the location I put the Mac is too far away from the router? Does anyone know how far away it can be? It's about 20 feet away then a left turn and about 5 feet away.. is that too far? If that is the case, then how could I possibly be accessing a neighbor's internet?? Q#2: When I'm connected to the unknown internet connection and I am using 'safari'.. and I press the '+' to maximize the screen... it remains in a square about half the size of the screen.. will safari not maximize to the full screen size? Q#3: Is there no ability to open multiple instances of safari? I have looked around and cannot find where to open another browser.. what am I doing wrong?? Q#4: So far.. I'm finding things are pretty slow from what I am used to.. and I'm using an antique PC here folks.. so it could be that whoever's internet connection I'm connected to has a very slow connection.. ?? I guess I won't be able to see what's what until I'm up and running.. but a Mac IS supposed to be faster than a PC, correct?? Thanks to anyone who can take the time to assist a newbie in the transition to Mac from PC!
