    Hi.

    I got some problems with my internet and have been in contact with my ISP who tells me that my problem may be that I only use Apple products because they send a lot of ARP traffic and that the router can't handle all that traffic?

    Is this true?

    Lol what a moron your isp is. I've got several MacBook pros and iPhones here, no problem. Several iMacs and MacBook pros and iPhones at work, works just fine.
    At my parents we have MacBook Pro and iPhones. Works okay too.

    Your isp is an idiot. Maybe you have a bad router?

    It's pretty common for ISP's to blame anyone else but their own terrible service. Truth is, it's usually the ISP's terrible service that is the problem. You have to keep at them diligently to get to the heart of the problem otherwise they're happy to take your money and give no service in return. Tell them you're about to switch to a competitor, that usually makes them rush to help you.

    To add: Most ISPs are not familiar with Mac products and will tell you anything to get you off the phone.
