Okay, I've had my Macbook since last summer, and have had no problems connecting to my wireless network with it from all around my house. I have a 2Wire DSL wireless router/modem from AT&T SBC Yahoo DSL, 6MB/down, 1MB/up. My Macbook keeps a strong wireless connection, as does my PSP and DS. My wired consoles run perfectly fine. My mom bought a Core Duo iMac a while back, and it's always had slooooooow internet via Airport. I tried using Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Camino. All ran RIDICULOUSLY slow. Downloads from sites like IGN were coming in at around 10k/seconds. There are often times connection timeouts and whatnot. I had heard some iMacs had Airport problems. So, I eventually hooked up a Nyko Net Extender. This device is pretty much a wireless extension cable for the ethernet out. You plug one of the devices to the computer's ethernet port, and it sends an RF signal to the receiving box connected to your modem. It worked perfectly fine for me back in the day before I had a real network and just needed my Xbox to get on Live for Halo. Still, though, the internet runs almost as slow. When I eventually connected the computer directly to the modem, it ran a little quicker. But it is still nowehere near where it should be. I'm lost. Why is the internet so slow? Granted, the iMac still has the 512MB of RAM. Which I know is a very, very small amount, and the absolute minimum the computer needs. Nevertheless, my mom just dropped a lot of money for this nice, new computer, and the internet is running slower than our old Dell, by a large margin. What's the deal?
