    go to websites that don't suck, or get closer to your wireless antenna.

    word.

    By "free" do you mean your neighbors did not secure their wireless router, and now you are picking it up thru the walls? :lol:

    HAHA thats great. in my apartmet complex theres at least like 5 people that have unsecured wireless routers. sometimes i contemplate cancelling my internet service and mooching off theirs :lol: and damn skippy mines secure. 128-bit WEP encryption with 26 digit key :)

    and yea its probably just slow cause you are using the internet when everyoe else is using it.
