  1. A spot on response. And, the quality of the wireless connection has a high potential for interference both from nearby EMP generating appliances and other devices that will slow wifi speeds, or even cause the connection to drop entirely. Plus, run a WiFi scanner application, such as "Wireless Diagnostics" (built into Mac's Network framework), and see all of the Wifi networks, connection types, and channels connected in your area. Wireless Diagnostics generates a report and will identify the best channels to set on your router or cable modem / router network(s) - whether 2.4 Ghz or 5 Ghz. Bottom line, Ethernet connection is still the most solid, fastest and consistent connection vs. WiFi, for now. Here are a couple of articles to review. https://www.howtogeek.com/217463/wi-fi-vs.-ethernet-how-much-better-is-a-wired-connection/ https://www.howtogeek.com/209450/how-you-and-your-neighbors-are-making-each-other’s-wi-fi-worse-and-what-you-can-do-about-it/
  2. While Apple stated that the new MacOS High Sierra 10.xx will run on older Mac's (including laptops, iMac, and of course the monster Mac Pro), this latest OS upgrade does consume more resources that the previous Sierra and much more than the predecessor El Capitan. Launch the Activity Monitor utility and take a look. I believe Apple said High Sierra would run on computers as old as 2009. HOWEVER, any Mac older than say, 2012 will be challenged - particularly when attempting to run the hoggish SL viewers. I was fortunate and fiscally able to max out my current late 2013 IMac with the best upgrades available at the time, including the biggest and fastest graphics card, the latest and fastest i7 dual quad core processors, and a sweet pure SSD *hard drive. Also loaded up with 16 GB's of memory. Only the most recent iMac's are now catching up with mine. Bottom line, I have seen some minor glitches with my iMac and running the latest FS viewer with MacOS High Sierra. Tweaks in Preferences have helped a lot. I am resisting clearing the disc cache and/or re-installing FS viewer as yet. I do need to clean out some old inventory and perhaps clear inventory and texture caches. since I have over 200GB's of free space on my SSD, I maxed out the disc cache size, and that seemed to help, too. Finally, try running with your ethernet option versus on WiFi. That should give a boost - especially on the older Mac's and particularly if you have an older WiFi router or Cable /modem router. A hard wired connection is always better. For now, my setup is running fine. Well, except for a couple FPS 'Falling Snow' lag ;-) Hope this post is informative and helpful.
  3. It is the sim server that you are on.... either restart the sim or get the owner to restart. just happened to me today and the owner restarted the sim. problem solved ;-)
  4. It has been awhile, but I am still around. Welcome and best wishes on your new endeavor. If ever you want advice from an oldie and many more who have known and experienced SL for many more years than the others posting on here, I would welcome the opportunity.... Here is to you and and 2011... E.
