    Hi there,

    I've got a MBP with leopard installed, but im having a major problem with webpages. Please bare in mind that this is from a fresh install of leopard (from a blank HDD) with all the latest updates.

    It doesnt matter which webpage i goto i.e. google, my own routers webpage, or here they all take minutes to load up.
    I am connected via the wireless (wired is alittle faster but nothing like it should be) - I've got other macs and pc's on the network they all seem to work fine (although a general observation is that all the mac are slightly slower than the pc).

    As it is, i find leopard seems to 'lock out' the wireless connection, after long idle times and i have to restart the wireless card/computer to get it to work again (i believe its a general bug with leopard? )


    So if any one can help me out that would be great.

    I'm having the same issue with my MacBook Pro, a restart of my computer or the router seems to be the only way to alleviate it.

    What hardware are you using to connect to the internet?

    I use my MB and AEBS with n 802.11n and it works pretty fast, even after updating to Leopard.

    I think that the router will slowdown to the slowest client connected.

    Check you web browser preferences and try others like Firefox.

    Hi there, thanks for the replies -

    Im using a d-link router and also a belkin in another location.
    Everything i have in N-band capable, so there is no problem with that, and all operate at 90% signal quality.

    Every setting i can think of i have checked, i dont know why this problem is occurring.

    Give this a try:

    Reset Safari...
    Empty Cache

    And erase all the cookies and clear the History.

    this worked for me...

    in the DNS selection under the DNS tab in Network prefs, input any DNS numbers your router's stat page generates.
