    Hi, I have a dual 2.0 g5 and recently i have been having slow internet browsing. I did a few speed test offered on the web and come back with great results. Some times it as high as 2.9 megabytes. But every pages loads real slow. It used to be quick until a fews months ago. I think it was when i did the update to the os that was pushed through. I always do the updates to the OS. I am running 10.3.3 right now. I have tried shutting down everything from the cable modem and router. Has anyone had a similar problem? Give me any ideas you have.

    thanks for the help.

    i have a firewire g3 400 laptop in 10.3.3. and haven't had any problems.

    i would check the following:

    -seems simple but - cables, try some new ones
    -check with ISP and see if they've experienced issues in your area, occasionally with broadband there can be issues like too much traffic on one node of your LAN
    -reset router to factory defaults, install any new firmware updates from the vendor
    -try another computer on the same network to see if it's hardware related.

    hope that helps.
