    I own a MacBook Pro (bought new in June-July 2009) and are having problems with my Wi-Fi.

    I mostly use FireFox on both my mac and windows computer.

    I use a linksys router and have AT&T DSL.

    A lot of times web pages take really long times to load or do't even load at all.

    Web pages on my wndows computer load almost fine.

    Is your Windows computer a laptop using WiFi?

    If not, have you tried plugging the MBP directly into the router?

    If that works, have you tried changing channels on your WiFi base station?

    I'd log onto the router, directly, and change the channel to another setting. There may be interference, depending on where you live and if you have satellite TV.

    Also, is your router password-protected? If not, refer to the manual and setup a password. Your internet speed depends on the amount of users and if your router is unprotected, you may have unwanted users.

    Good luck
