Any way to speed up internet on a Mac?

Ive only just got the damn thing and its been slow from day one, cutting out occasionally which makes things like MSN very difficult to use.

My other laptop is slow as shit, but the internet works fine on it, so Im guessing there may be some default settings on this mac slowing it down?


This is my first mac so I have no idea what to do. Help appriciated.

What internet do you use? Wireless? Cable?

I could make a guess, you use wireless on the macbook and always used cable on the laptop? That's easily explained since the cable gives way more speed.

If you used the same for both, might be that Airport isn't properly recognizing the router. Reconfigure it for the router and it should work properly.

I used the same wireless for both. Airport finds it fine, and 90% of the time the signal is full all the way. :S

How do I reconfigure it?

hm, that's pretty odd then.

Well just search for a new accesspoint, select yours. But I don't think it'll work if you used the same wireless. My macbook was WAY faster than any laptop in my house!
