Hi, I have the latest rev 12" ibook that works like a charm. At my apartment, I have cable internet and use a 54G router, and airport works flawlessly, pages load fast, etc. Whenever I use my ibook at my parent's house (also has cable) it takes several seconds in the "looking up / contacting" stage (in either firefox or safari) whenever I try to go to a new page. These are big pages like cnn, google, nytimes, etc. It's fine once I'm on a page and browsing (as long as I stay in that domain) but if I let it sit for a while and then try to reload, it has to do it's contact / lookup again. The connection is super fast on all the wired computers, and on PC wireless laptops. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this slowdown? Could it be whatever type of encryption is being used? Thanks - I'm at a loss!
