    After recent several Mac OS auto updates, something is driving me nuts now:

    My browsers are getting timeout every 10 minutes, both Safari 2.04 and Firefox 2.0.0.6, even not timeout, a page would take 10-30 seconds to load. If I turn off the Airport and then turn it on, the browsers come back again loading pages normally, then 5-10 minutes later...

    What's wrong with Apple recently? the only thing changed on my MBP was the auto updates, I didn't change any thing, nor any new software installed.

    When you say you turn off the AirPort, is that the card in your Mac or the base station? :)

    Sounds like you could have a flaky airport card or base station.

    What I meant was, turn off the Aitport wireless connection on my MacBook Pro.

    If you have another machine on your network, try a large file transfer between the two and see if it can keep the transfer going. This might test whether it's a network issue or an internet one...

    There've been a few complaints about 10.4.10 and the Intel AirPort cards. Is that the recent update you're talking about?

    I suspect that the issue is because of the recent Mac updates, I accept whatever update from Apple Software Update, so I think my MacBook Pro has ALL the updates installed.

    Okay, that should mean you're running 10.4.10. Is the file transfer test possible? :)

    I've had the same problem...and I'm not using Airport to connect on the net, I'm on an ethernet router. I can also connect using Airport and when I do the same problem happens.

    I can be surfing the net on Safari, Firefx or Opera and some pages won't load and time out. I can't test what your asking for as I don't have a second machine, but have testes it in a different way: I switch to Mail and download my e-mails, which they do with no problem and very fast. So i guess from this I might be able to assume this is not a connection problem.

    My uneducated guess is that Apple probably has introduced some security updates that are maybe to "strict"...or strict enough to slow things down when connected.
