    ok, my macs behaving weirdly
    at home, all apps work fine, no problems
    when im at school (and the network location is changed) safari crashes on launch, when the wifi is turned off, safari loads fine (but obviosly gives a no network warning)
    also, i tried to load front row with the wifi on, nothing happened. as soon as wifi was turned off, front row loaded with no prompt from me

    has anyone any ideas on how to solve this? thanks

    This is a well known "proxy" issue with Leopard - hopefully it will be fixed with the new release of 10.5.2

    Look here for more info, don't worry you are not alone!! At one point I thought I was.
