    Hello, well I got my Mac about 4 months ago and can't deal with the way the WiFi acts on my Mac anymore. The internet is fine when it's loading webpages, but it's really slow at loading images, streaming and downloading. For example, this forum loads extremely fast, but if someone had a GIF for a sig, it would finish loading in about 10 minutes.

    I searched for help but a lot of the information I found doesn't seem similar to my problem. I'm starting to think that there's just something wrong with my Mac. :(

    Also, the thread about adding DNS to make the internet faster was confusing. (Since I don't even know what it does. :p) I attempted to try it but it just creates an extremely slower network for me called wireless.

    Thanks, and sorry for the long post with no useful info, it's because I'm not even sure where to even look to solve this. :p

    edit: I'll start with saying I have a MacBook. haha

    What is your internet connection speed? Make sure that is not the problem first. Otherwise take it in to a mac genius.

    What kind of connection are you on? It may be something with your mac, but it may be something with the internet connection as well. I was at camp this summer as a counselor, and we had satellite internet instead of cable, as I am used to. As such it was a lot slower, and seemed to take forever to load things. So if you could tell us about your internet, that might help. If all else, I guess you can take it to a mac genius and see what they say.
