    Specs:
    PowerMAC G4 dual1.25gb RAM,160gb HD,250 external HD,ibook G4, 24"iMacIntelCore2Duo,2gb ram, macmini
    Slow down on my macs
    I have a powermac G4 upstairs wired to my D-Link router and a wireless G4 ibook laptop that I use downstairs. The whole thing worked fine but lately I have noticed that both my macs are loading the internet pages slower. Can this be caused by the router? It has been happening for the last few weeks. What are the signs of a router going bad?

    I had an old router until very recently. My computers would do that too. All I did to make it work like new again was either unplug the router or hit that little reset button on the router. I woudln't reccommend the second one because you have to redo all you internet settings. Try unplugging and then counting to 15 and then pluggin it back in. Post back and let us know.

    plug your modem directly into one of your comps and see if it changes, if so, yes

    otherwise make sure your router is secure and other people arent leeching your Inet connection via the wireless.
