    If you surf your ISP's Support pages, they may have online "updated" instructions to configure their Modem/Router. If using an ISP and different company modem/gateway box, surf the modem/gateway box site as well. They may have updated patches or update configurations on their Web Site (under their config / support pages) as well.

    If wondering, I've been networking my home machines for many years. Out of the blue, my one workstation's connection become unstable. I tried this, I tried that and still, it was unstable. For "heck of it", I surfed my ISP's Support pages and to my surprise, they had updated their original settings page. One of those "bug fixes" they don't openly advertise. Today, no more access problems.

    This tip might work for your setup as well....

    Just found the below on a different Mac forum.

    "Just spoke with Apple - If you are using a 2Wire wireless connection with your Apple, you need to change the wireless network security to wpa2-psk in the 2Wire. It's an Apple security issue."

    As a suggestion, try this change in your wireless modem/router (even if not a 2wire brand). It might solve your Mac wireless problems as well...

    Hope this helps...

    A few months back, I installed a "cool looking" Add-On and afterwards, my workstation started acting funny. Did some research and discovered one of the Add-Ons was "pulling my network access down".

    If you can, run your brower "without" add-ons. If problem goes away, you found the area of the problem. Start disabling each add-on - until problem goes away...

    See below cut/paste for more details....

    ----------

    How do browser add-ons affect my browsing experience?

    Add-ons, also known as ActiveX controls, browser extensions, browser helper objects or toolbars, can improve your experience on a website by enabling content such as high-quality animations. However, some add-ons can also malfunction or display content that you don’t want, such as pop-up ads.

    When an add-on, such as a toolbar, is installed on your computer, it becomes part of your browser and operating system. In some cases these programs might contain spyware. In the worst case, a malfunctioning add-on might affect the performance of your computer or cause problems accessing the Internet.


    Hope this helps as well....

    Another thing to try; tell us what browser you're using. I'm assuming that's where you're seeing the slowdown; on the internet. Is that right?
