Just been waiting ages for emails to come in, you know how you have the little tv icon in windows that shows if the internet is actually doing anything, downloading etc. Is there an equivalent on Mac. The AirPort icon is all I have and that doesn't move. I'm not in the same room as the router so don't know if it's flickering either. Also....... Have a IP provided router and the signal/wireless is pretty lousy. Would buying a new router help this or will it give me the same service the existing one does. Always wondered why PC World is full of routers when anyone who signs up for Broadband gets a router sent for free, so have to assume there are better that you can switch it for?
