I don't even want to use my ibook at home! I have a desktop eMac also that i use. I have two questions with 2 problems -- first, I have to ALWAYS unplug the phone cord line off ibook and when I open the lid, then I plug in otherwise it won't connect. It never used to do this. Is something wrong? It started to happen when I switched ISP's.
Second.... this ibook is SOOOO slow in loading web sites. My older eMac is so much faster. I'm on dial up at home. I'm wondering if it could be servers??
On the eMac, I'm using Camino and on the ibook I'm using Safari. But... when I take my ibook to work with me, I'm using their wireless service and it's extremely fast with no slow ups at all using Safari.
So, I'm stumped. I'm getting about 24000 bps on the eMac and about 21000 on the ibook. I have tried using the exact same hookup area as the eMac and it makes no difference. I thought it had something to do with the phone jack but that doesn't seem to be the case.
