    hateapples,

    Check your Airport connection and see if you are connected to the same network on the Mac as your PC (System Preferences>Network). If you are, there shouldn't be any noticeable difference... Check your Network Location and make sure it's set to automatic. In the Advanced buttons you can check all your network settings as well...

    Also check all your browser settings for downloading. Maybe you could use FF3 if you aren't already.

    hateapples,

    If you can check it out with another Macbook, you'll get a good comparison check. Great idea!
