If you are fine when connected with ethernet just leave it.iMac 2.8GHz 2GB RAM ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Apple TV 2G

Currently Being ModeratedDec 5, 2010 12:59 PM (in response to mhannan)I was referring to the OP who said he had no problems with a wired connection. Wifi can be faulty and ethernet is the way to go, if you can manage it.iMac 2.8GHz 2GB RAM ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Apple TV 2G
Currently Being ModeratedDec 6, 2010 4:23 PM (in response to vazandrew)It seems like I solved the two problems today! (Apple TV 2.0 & Throttled Macbook 1,83Ghz Network Speed)
1st - I used kisMac on OSX to determine which Wifi channels are in use and adjusted my airport express N to use a free channel and that seems to work for now...
I haven't rented any new movies/tv shows yet, but streaming from my macbook and iMac works without any delays and quite fast as it used to...
2nd - I disabled IPv6 support on my macbook 1,83Ghz OSX 10.6 which solved the problem of slow download- and upload speeds I experienced using my Wireless and Wired connection (also when using them isolated). Somehow IPv6 breaks down the speed dramatically.
But, the strange thing is, this doesn't happen on my iMac 24" with the same 10.6.5 update...
That's not right...
When I test AppleTV2 with renting a new TV show wireless tomorrow I will post back the results here...Macbook Core Duo 1,83, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 2GB, 250GB

I searched so long for a fix of my slow Airport on my 1st Gen Macbook.
I never thought about turning IPv6 off until you mentioned it and that works like a charm.
Should have done that a long time ago and not buying a macbook pro ^^
