    Specs:
    Mac Mini, 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2, 4GB, Leopard OS X 10.6.8
    Question Unstable Internet Connection
    I've had my Mini for 3 months and recently, when trying to connect to the internet in the morning, the connection flickers between my service provider's log-in page and google.co.uk (my home page). It's really fast flickering and will not settle on either of the pages. After about 2 hours, it can connect completely normally.

    I have an ethernet connection to a Nanostation which picks up a signal from a repeater about 200 metres away. My Internet Service Providers keep telling me there are no problems with the repeater.

    I work from home and a stable connection is vital to me. Do you think it could be my Mac or is it actually the signal?

    Any advice welcome, please.

    It's not your Mac Mini. That symptom is typical of a poor or intermittent connection. In your situation it could also be a problem with the repeater. One thing I have found with internet providers is that whoever or wherever they are, they seldom if ever will admit that a bad signal or service is their fault. Keep after them or switch providers if possible.

    Thanks very much for this, chscag. I thought as much and they DO keep denying responsibility by saying that no-one else using that particular repeater is complaining. I wonder why? Perhaps they've switched already!
