Okay folks so I've managed to download the OS update but my connection appears real slow.

I'm in the UK and I have SKY broadband (16Mbps) and I'm using the netgear wirless router they supplied. Compared to my crappy toshiba laptop my connection seems real sluggish and appears to be disconnected at times.

Any tips or suggestions?

The OS update is the 10.4.10 one. I noticed the slow connection straight away - Internet speed tests appear to confirm that my toshiba downloads/uploads faster (almost X3) than the mac :confused:

Not really sure what to do?

Okay, do you have an Intel laptop? If so, check this out. :)
:eek: So I guess I need to wait for a another OS update :(

Is there any way to view the signal strength of the wifi conection on my macbook similar to the one I have on my toshiba (very basic: excellent, very strong etc)
