I have a D-Link cable modem, with an Airport Express providing my wireless access. iBook, 1.0G, 768 RAM, all updates current - even OS X 10.3.9. I question my access speed and feel it could be much better. Also, the Airport Express seems to drop the access at times, and restarting the AE through Airport Admin Utility will give the access back. I went to a coffee shop that has wireless last night. They also have service through the same cable company as I do. I had started to download the 10.3.9 update at home with about 10k per minute max. When I connected to the coffee shop's wireless, I downloaded at who knows what speed, but it was about a MB every 10-20 seconds. 10.3.9 was downloaded in no time. I would tend to believe that the wireless company is paying much more per month for cable service than I am at $50 per month. But I have a real hard time believing there is that much difference in service. Is there any tweaking to my setup that anyone can recommend? I'm more computer literate than many people, but not at brilliant as the Macrumors member Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have talked to their service and support, this company who are very friendly, but see nothing wrong with my setup. Thanks in advance!!!
