    Just working around my computer has slowed down a bit. But working on anything to do with the internet has really slowed down, almost to a hault. Safari, FireFox, MSN. All have slowed right down. Now I know what your thinking "Well it's your internet connection" Well right now I'm on my vista half of my MacBook and the internet works flawlessly.

    Does anyone have any idea of what's up?

    Tell us more about your internet connection and network setup. It could be a simple DNS issue...

    Okay, what sort of modem is it? How is it connected to your machine? Is it connected via USB, ethernet or through some other means?

    terayon modem. as supplied by the companied called Shaw. It's connected to my computer using an ethernet cable, connected directly to the modem. Sometimes I have the same wire connected to a router so I can have internet on my xbox 360 and my old windows 98.

    same problem

    The same thing has been happening to me >.<

    I've had my MacBook for a while, and it's been slowing down a lot lately. I'm not sure if it's my internet connection or what; I have ethernet. I don't really know much about computers...so if anyone could help me as well...?

    My friend said something about how deleting shared files would speed it up, if that helps at all.
