    Please!!--Problem with my Mac vs other users!!!
    Hi all.
    See, I have this problem.
    I have a linksys wireless router, but for the most part we're not using the wireless.
    When I bypass the router entirely, plugging the cable from my ISP directly into the back of the Mac, I run fine, really fast.
    But if I plug into the router because of needing to share with other users, my brother's PC, my nephew's x-box, or occasionally my brother's wireless dell laptop from his job, my Mac grinds to a slow crawl. It works, but like a
    33.6 modem. As a matter of fact, it crawls even when noone else is using, as I just checked now. Any time I'm in the modem.
    Can anyone tell me why this is, or what I can do to remedy it?
    Is there some configuration with my Mac or the modem?
    Thanks so much,

    Do you have anyone else, say a neighbor maybe, that is sharing your connection when your router is plugged in??

    You can also try resetting your router to factory settings and try it again (remember t secure it).

    I suggest you try a different wireless channel on the Router - you may be colliding with a channel somebody else is using.
