    Okay so I have been using my 13" MBP since the 7th of August and since the first day the internet has been SLOW and it won't load pictures half the time! It will load a little blue question mark instead of the picture!

    I have three other apple computers and a netbook on wireless (not all at the same time, just to check internet speeds) and they all work perfectly so it isn't the router.... and it isn't 10.5.8 because I have not installed it!

    Does anyone know how to fix this? Or does anyone else have this problem?

    Create a new user on the computer that isn't working and see if it's working there. From there we can determine how to proceed from there.

    Try manually configuring the DNS settings on your MacBook. You could try entering the DNS IP addresses for your ISP or use the ones from OpenDNS. The OpenDNS addresses are 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

    I'm having the same problem. Except, one of my MBPs (new generation) works perfectly fine, however, the older (prev generation) MBP is taking forever to load pages. Any suggestions?
