    So, my connection has been dropping, getting faster, lagging, and doing anything to annoy the crap out of me. This happens on both browsers. I tried something called namebench, used the new ips given but that didn't help at all.
    If anyone can help me at all, I would be grateful! I tried pram resets too, that didnt help either.

    Video: Please watch the whole video, thanks!!

    I'm not going to watch your video, but the fact that it's happening on both browsers suggests an issue with your router, modem, or ISP.

    I would agree with modem/router issues.

    Who is your ISP, what type/model of router you have?

    You could also try trashing Mac HD/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration if you are on 10.5 or above then reboot. That resets all network settings/prefs to defaults on your Mac and willhelp you to rule it out.

    I have comcast cable 12mbps package (but get 25mps ethernet and 16mbps wireless) on a good day, and my router is a netgear wgt624 super g 108mbps router.

    Unplug your modem & router from power. Then power your modem back on. Then your router.
