The wife wanted netflix through the wii, so set it all up but a consequence has been that my macbook air is now incredibly slow. I at first thought it was just another wifi addition (the wii) overloading the router so turned off the wii at the wall and still the download issue, it doesn't effect her windows pc though.

It's too coincidental that the problems started after the nextflix/wii addition ..just puzzling

Do you have photostream in iTunes open? this hammered my wifi, turned it off and all was good again.

You can also try changing the channel on the router incase there is interference. Download Airlock on your macbook, this will tell you what channels users nearby are using so that you can avoid.

Thanks for the reply

No itunes, never use it on this machine as I use a terabite hardwired desktop for storage etc to keep the lappy running fast and free . Will try the router& airlock later on this evening..thanks
