    I am on 10.8.2, my internet is very slow from 1 month. I have tried firefox, safari and chrome. The web page loads very slowly and I have to keep refreshing until the page opens up. The strange thing is my torrents work fine. Wireless internet works pretty good in my windows laptop.

    One other I have noticed is the download stops in my torrent when my mac is kept idle for few mins and when it goes to sleep. Previously it used to download when I kept my mac on all night long. Also, when I type in url and hit enter and then open a different url in new tab, the web page wont open in my first tab. I have keep it open for the page to load. Does anyone have similar problem? Please help me to fix this issue.

    Maybe you should look towards your torrent App, I know certain Transmission version(s) and/or other similar apps can mess up wifi.
