    Perhaps you're right, I'll move the router back to it's original spot tomorrow and see if performance improves. If so, I'll go with the long ethernet cable solution.

    Never bought a new Mac before, so Craigslist would be my "favorite" place.

    Never even bothered to check if my Late '07 MacBook was compatible with Mountain Lion. Turns out that it isn't, and thus Mavericks is a no-go as well.
