    Whenever someone calls my house, my wifi dies. And my music library is accessed over wifi from my macbook pro.

    So I got a phonecall, and my MBP was in the middle of playing some music thru itunes. The music cuts out, because the wifi dies. iTunes beachballs. I have to force quit, but iTunes won't load up again. So I restart.

    Ever since that restart, OSX takes forever to boot up. It shows me my wallpaper for like 3 minutes before loading up the white title bar. And it loads in pieces, showing me the spotlight icon for like 2 minutes before loading the rest of the white bar.

    What's the deal here? How can I make my OSX load up snappy? I have rebuilt the Spotlight database, and no beans.

    It's possible that the wiring from your phone line is interfering with your Airport Express. Are they portable telephones? If so, try moving your phone receiver away from the airport express if they are close together. (I'm assuming you are using the AE)

    When I bought a new portable phone last year I bought one that was 5.8GHz instead of the usual 2.4GHz as sometimes having a 2.4 router and a 2.4 phone can cause problems.

    wifi phone I presume and over wifi in MBP. The phone is more powerful than the mbp and jams the signal, itunes gets really confused and eats system resources and causes crazy stuff to happen.

    Try reseting permissions, and clearing pram.
