    I have a macbook pro Lion 10.7.2 and I have really slow wireless internet connection in my house. I am sitting right next to the modem thing and the only thing that loads is google. Any other pages takes really long to load.

    With the PC, my brothers mac and my dad's acer laptop the internet is fine and is quite decent. Mine is driving me crazy....

    About 2-3 weeks ago it was fine then sudden;y it just stops working or is extremely slow...

    The connection has full bars but it's still slow.

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

    OPTION-click the AirPort/WiFi icon in the Menu Bar and tell us, what is listed after Channel, PHY Mode and Transmit Rate.

    same problem!

    Hey, I have exactly the same problem! I "option clicked" over my airport and my numbers were almost identical to you. Have you found a solution yet?
