What version of Mac OS X are you using ? When did this problem started ?
I use Apple OSX 10.6.8. The problem started a month ago, more or less.

Your connection is slow, do you have this problem with different devices or computer ?
Can you contact your Internet Service Provider and ask them about your actual speed of your connection ?
Yes, I do have this problem with another computer. However, my main Mac is the one that seems to overheat. (That is one question: does the fact that the fans come on frequently indicate a mechanical problem?) As far as the server, I just contracted with a NEW server two days ago (CenturyLink, our local phone provider.) I will call and ask them...and will get back to you about this. One question: in general, what (ballpark) speeds for upload and download should I be expecting?
Hi, OK. I went to the URL and followed the procedures for resetting SMC. (Just shutting down, disconnecting power, reconnecting, and starting up again?) I'm still having the same fan problems, although the symptoms the URL describes of needing an SMC reset are pretty much identical to what I'm experiencing. Should I try it again?
