    hi guys and girls.

    im new. i have an imac core 2 duo and i just bought a mbp. when i bought the mbp i also bought the airport extreme. i hooked everything up according to the directions but something isn't right. my internet (dsl) surfing and download speeds are extremely slow on the mbp and i've even noticed a drop in speed on the imac. did i do something wrong? why are my speeds even slow on the ethernet connected imac? speeds on the imac are slow even when the mbp isn't on and the mbp surfs like dial-up.

    your advice/help is appreciated.

    Are the speeds also slow if you connect either of the Macs directly to the DSL modem? It only started after you got the Airport Extreme?

    I have that problem at work with the new airport exreme. We had no problems with the old one. With the new one, the internet also flickers. What we do is just unplug it and plug it back in when it lags or stops working altogether.

    that's not a good solution.
