Connecting to the office network now requires us to use the Rapport application. I didn't know that it has a downside until I realized that surfing the net now sucks. Well, because it's slooooooooow.
I also applied some software update at the same time so I didn't connect the dots until tonight when I want to login to my blog and it was taking forever. I tried using Firefox and it was the same. Then, Ding! The light bulb went on, did some research and voila! Problem solved.
I didn't uninstall it as I do need it when connecting to office network. It can be turned on and off in the system preferences. Knowing the downside to it, I'll definitely use it only when absolutely necessary.
Now, on to fast website responses and surfing the net.....
