    The internet has bee moving slowly on my 24" imac. I'm using a wireless connection that is only a few feet from my computer. (my own network) The web moves slow on both safari and firefox. Google taking long to load up, a google search loading slowly, facebook taking a couple of minutes..

    My girlfriend used the same wireless network on her Dell Vostro laptop using internet explorer and it moves lighting fast..

    (The internet connection is cable high speed 7.5 mbps)

    What's going on here?

    For starters, I would go into your Internet preference in your Sys Prefs, and create a new Location (which by default is set to Automatic).

    After that...... I can't think of anything else right now, but all that means is that I'm forgetful.
