I've narrowed it down to that as the problem, as my gf's PC which is half as powerful as my mac, if that, is faster than my macbook online!!. And everywhere else I go I have fast internet on it. I have tried doing the DNS thing and that hasn't done anything... As you can probably tell I'm pretty useless at this kind of thing. But my internet speed is way over 6/7 meg, which should be quick right?? and it takes a long time just browsing internet. Someone told me it could be incompatibilty between the macbook and the router?? PLease help my painful internet.
