This mac has 12 Gigs of RAM, but is consistently slow when I try to go from one site to another. Sometimes the progress bar only goes part of the way.
It's always possible your internet is slow…or slow today (could be an ISP thing).
I suppose this is possible, since I do have periodic disconnect problems every time it even looks like it's going to rain. The wires that come into my yard come from a box about a mile away according to the ATT technician. That is a **** of a distance, don't you think?
Thanks Nick, let me try to be a little clearer here. The slowness is normal, and sometimes when I click on a link, it only goes part of the way (progress bar) and that's it, sometimes it connects after a minute or so. Then there are times when there is only a slight delay. I mentioned a disconnect when it rains or is getting ready to rain. I have to reboot the modem, then the connection is made for awhile before I lose it again.My answer above was based on the fact that the slowness you mentioned is different than usual (thus the reason for posting the thread). If your internet has always been slow…then the situation mentioned in post number 1 would be normal.
So maybe we need some clarification. Is this slowness normal or unusual? If unusual…my point was maybe it's not your computer…maybe the internet service is slower today than usual…due to more internet traffic from:
- Black Friday
- Thanksgiving weekend
- more people off from work
The slowness is normal...
