AirPort Card Doesn't Load Pages Quickly. Is it Bad?
Hello everyone! My friend has an iMac G5 (non-ALS version) with 1.8GHz and 1.5GB of RAM. It runs incredibly well on Leopard, but for some reason, loading pages on the internet takes forever when connected via AirPort. We plugged in an Ethernet cable to see if it would make the pages load faster, and disconnected the Wi-Fi, and it works! The internet is fast now, but it would of course be better to not have that cable lying around the house. I tried resetting Safari, repairing permissions, and even making a new account, but nothing seemed to help it except for the Ethernet cable.
My assumption is that the AirPort card has gone bad. Could that happen and cause the pages not to load quickly? What do y'all think? Thanks so much!
Is this a good question?
