    Here is the output from my pingtest via Network Utility...
    Is anyone else having the same issues?

    --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
    20 packets transmitted, 20 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.735/809.975/2627.496/943.875 ms

    Pingtest.net will typically give me an "F" rating and indicate that almost 30% of my 200 packets sent didn't make the trip back.

    Any thoughts?
    On a related side note, there will be a memorial service for all packets lost in the aether of the Intertubes in the near future...

    What are your results when using a wire? That's pretty important in identifying what might be the problem. :)

    Well, there is no problem with the wire. I more or less wanted to see if there was a similar issue with other people, and if they had figured out a solution to the problem. In addition, I want to get some sense of whether this is a small problem in contrast to the greater pool of 21.5" iMac ALs. I'm hoping it's a simple hardware issue. I really hope it is not a software issue... because we ALL know how Apple is when it comes to marginal software issues... :(
