    I have a new aluminum iMac and I have had great success with except for two minor things. I have looked for the answer and there haven't been any clear cut answers.

    1. I came home from college for break, and wanted to connect to my parent's wireless network. I did so but the speed is ridiculously slow (<5kbps) and pages hardly load. The router is a D-Link DL-524 and I have a WEP encryption. I'm not sure why its so slow because I used the wireless network at college with my iMac and I was at speeds of 1 Mbps so there must be some problem with the airport and the router. I even tried connecting without the WEP.

    2. Not a huge problem but I have to continually reconnect my BT Mighty Mouse in Windows when I boot. I have done the 0000 encryption number for the mouse, but it still doesn't pick it up after I restart. I have a wireless keyboard and Windows finds that perfectly.

    Again, any help is greatly appreciated. I have read that the router/airport issue may be resolved in 10.5.2, so hopefully this is correct and that update comes out soon.

    Have you tried plugging directly in? You obviously used a different network at college right? Perhaps its the ISP.

    And do other computers connect wirelessly just fine?

    Well then from there I really am not sure what the problem is besides the iMac itself. I came accross this article. Maybe that will help you out. Sorry I'm not of more help.
