    It can easily take 1 minute to charge a simple website like google.com. It only happens when I'm connected with a wire (wireless is as fast as it should be). I connected my girlfriend MacBook to the cable and it works fine.

    I have the late 08 MBP with AEBS latest firmware. I even tried doing a full cleanup with Onyx and it didn't change anything.

    Anyone have the same problem?? Should I take it to the Apple Store or any of you got some magic Terminal commands :D.

    Thanks in advance

    EDIT: My wired connection is fine on my XP partition, so it's not my cable/ethernet card. So the problem is really coming from OSX.

    EDIT2: SOLVED!!!! Changed my DNS servers.

    I think your only problem is that you're using wired internet! :p

    I was having the same problem last night with my new MBP. I was downloading files and they would download 2 -3x faster wirelessly than they would while connected with a ethernet cable. It was very strange. I am also using an AEBS and have a PC hooked up that downloads normally when connected with a ethernet cable.

    It's really strange. I'll try posting this on the Apple forum and see if I get some help there. Still don't hesitate giving any advice, I'm not scared of Terminal:)

    Problem solved, I deleted all my internet config on my Mac and let him reconfigure. Seems like my DNS servers weren't good (might have changed them while at school).
