Just as the title says, I am getting very low download speeds on my MacBook Pro.
I did a speed test at speedtest.net, and am getting 7 MbPS down, .5 up. However, I can only seem to get 270 KB PS max (averaging 100 K), whether on my school's network or on my home network, wired or wireless.
I am on Mac OS X 10.5.8, with Google Chrome. My ethernet settings (under System Preferences -> Network -> Ethernet Connection -> Advanced -> Ethernet) are set to "Configure Automatically", "Speed: 100TX", "Duplex: full-duplex, flow-control", and "MTU: Standard (1500)".
As far as I can tell, there are no throttles or anything between here and the ISP, so...
Any ideas on why I'm getting such low download speeds?
