    I picked up a AirPort Extreme a couple days ago and setting it up was breeze. The internet works but very slow. When I download items, under the download bar it only downoads at 300kbs and it seems like its capped. Now when I plug my old D-Link wireless router in, the internet is alot faster and the downloads speeds are at the usual 770kbs. I called tech support and they had me change a bunch of setting and still no luck. I updated all my software and did resets with the modem and router. now im in the position to return it, I am just looking for last minute help you know what mean.:) My computer is the new 2.5ghz MBP and new Asus windows Vista base laptop.

    Try doing the following in terminal (it will ask for your admin password):

    sudo /usr/sbin/sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack=0
