Hi there,

I found this by googling the keywords "troubleshooting airport".

Failing that, you could always give Apple UK a call on 0800 048 0408 (option 2 for technical).

I hope this is of some use to you.

Perhaps as first step connect it by ethernet cable to the router/modem and then check speeds - if it is faster then you know where to look - the wireless settings on the MB.
