Having trouble ...


I have an airport extreme and westell modem and mac book pro


My home wireless network performace is poor compared to friend wireless networks - for example using BING map at my home ... the map load very slow ... and at friends house (using my Mac Book pro) the maps load very quick.


Any suggestions ... like setting in the Airport Extreme or Modem ???   Bridge ...


Keep in mind ... I am extreme novice on this topic ...

    Well your friend might have a high speed Internet connection and the newer Wireless N router and you don't.


    Your computer is fast at his connection, so it's not your computer that's the problem.
