    The internet has been slowing down drastically the last few weeks on my MacBook. I use my PC, iphone, GFs laptop and it is quick, its just on my macBook. I tried plugging it in directly to bypass Airport but it is still slow. An ideas? It is so bad that I never want to use it anymore, takes a good minute to load Google.

    In safari empty the cache, it could help.

    I did that in Safari and it didn't help. I DLed FireFox 3 to see if that fixed it but no luck.

    I know it isn't my internet because I can use it perfectly on any other computer in my house. I also tried to use the internet at my parents and a friends and it was just as slow.

    Done it many times. I know it is not my router or internet because anyone else that uses it is fast and if I use someone elses it is slow

    Do you have access to another system to test your connection?
