    Alright so my Wireless internet on my new MacBook has been really fast previously, but just today it became really slow. It's like I'm back in the dial up era. Even Google pages take seven seconds to load (I counted!). So I figured maybe it was my wireless. So I went upstairs and plugged in my ethernet cord. No improvement at all.

    I already restarted and I already reset the PRAM. Is there anything else I can do?

    My old windows desktop on the same connection is normal.

    I already did that too.

    And Firefox and Safari have the same results.

    I don't have anything new to suggest, but ironically this particular page took me forever to load. :rolleyes:

    It's so bad that I'm using my PC now. I mean it takes about 5 minutes for Adium to sign on.

    EDIT: Alright so all is well now. It's back up to speed. Before, to reset my modem, I just unplugged it and then plugged it back in like I always do. Then I looked at it again and saw the reset button. I did that and it works perfectly. Thanks Reflow.
