Make sure you have at least 20% free space in your hard drives. Repair permissions. Get Spring Cleaning or something similar and use the app to clean up any unneeded files. The fuller your hard drive the slower your Mac. Check to make sure your cables are correct - use Firewire 800 when you can instead of FW400, don't expect much from USB connections in the way of speed. Hope this helps.

I have a Mac G4, and this morning it stopped playing videos smoothly. They buffer very slowly, and jerkily. I'm not sure what to do. I'm using Firefox. Help?


This could well be to do with your internet connection - almost everyone suffers from slow speeds sometimes. If this isn't the problem, perhaps downloading the newest version of Firefox would help. Firefox is a great browser, but known to be slow. Do you have these problems in Safari, too?
Hope that helped!

Ethernet speed changes from normal to zero


If you have high speed internet go to your ISP webpage and do a speed test. If You are paying for say like 10 MEGS and are only pulling 1.2 Megs. It probably is your modem. Your speed will slow down to approx 7.5 behind a router. Also Your ethernet cable might need replacing. might also might try resetting your router. disconnect all power even the cable comming in and reset everything. Hope that helps.
