Lately, all of our laptops and mac minis with Snow Leopard 10.6.8 have been freezing while viewing things on the internet, or will not go to sites, e.g. the blue line that usually indicates a web page is loading just freezes halfway and locks up the computer. We also have shared printers connected via airport, every so often we can't print anything unless we completely restart the computers and even then sometimes it won't print. I have read discussions on all kinds of forums but no real answers. Is this just Apple's way of getting us to upgrade to their crappy Lion?
QUOTE Thanks

Hi,
Sounds like you have some wireless connectivity issues. I'd give your wireless router a reboot for starters, either do it via the device's pane or, pull the cord, leave it a few minutes and plug back in.

iMac 27-inch Mid 2010 (wow....that old...eeeks!), WD My Book 1TB Firewire,WD My Passport Air 500GB, Magic Mouse,Magic Trackpad,
iPhone 5C, iPod Nano 4GB 3rd Gen, ATV2.
MOTM October 2012. These days normally happy with an occasional grumble.

Now I notice that it is isolated to only one computer out of the five in our office, and my laptop at home...thanks for the reply by the way!
