long time downloads, "looking for networks" intermittently
I notice often that downloads take a very long time. As I look at the Airport icon, it shows the message "looking for networks" very often. Is this an Airport Extreme Card or antenna issue?
Well, I wouldn't say solved, just changed. I am not sure how to mark it accepted, but I will cancel this and post another question, now that the symptoms have changed
OK I have run diagnostics on the network activities. First of all the router is fine. Other devices (older MacBook, Iphone) work just fine in networking, and using the wireless router.
As I monitor Network Status diagnostics Wi-fi, Wi-fi-settings, and Network Settings remain green constantly. ISP, Internet, and server go red intermittently, not all at one time ISP may turn red and the others follow. When red, I have internet/mail communication issues, when green, all is well.
I have only had this computer a little over a year, but foolishly did not get the extended service :(. Any ideas?
As I have been writing this answer, I have not seen any changes in the network status, and communication is great
Is this a good question?
