    Ok, I just came home from my cottage yesterday where I had to use dial-up on my mac, today I noticed that the internet is really really slow randomly, and it also forgot my network key a couple of times. The slowness varies and is quite random. The slowness just started and I have had my MB for around 2 years

    Oh and btw its a 2nd gen macbook (late 2006) and I used it last night and it was completely fine with Skype and everything

    Also forgot to mention that it is on wifi, and that sometimes it won't even work at all

    this is really getting to me, also forgot to mention that I have had bouts of slow internet before but that was ages ago and was fixed with a new router

    well I tried that and didn't get anything out of it, but thanks anyways, some other things I forgot to mention...

    Router: 2Wire

    I also forgot to note that it mainly cuts out on me than it is slow, as in, the bar is loading but it doesn't load. It is really pissing me off, cause I'm in need of it and I can't go around with an ethernet cable connected to me
