I've been working on trying to get my Mac up to speed on the net, and am experiencing some very strange results.
First of all, webpages load slow on my Mac. Speedtest says
Mac OS X 10.5 Windows 7 Ping 116ms 200ms Download 0.83mb/s 5.81mb/s Upload 0.61mb/s 0.51mb/s
I'm running synergy with the Mac as the server, no problem with the speed of synergy I also run skype on the Mac, and have no problem with full video on skype.
I've set my DNS to OpenDNS as that was what all the message boards say to do, but that hasn't helped.
Of course, I've restarted the Mac, turned airport on and off, as well as turned off synergy and skype and re-run the tests, but nothing works.
Airport has full bars. The computers are right next to each other, so signal is all the same. I don't have access to the base-station unfortunately.
My DNS servers are set to 126.96.36.199 abd 188.8.131.52
IPv6 is off.
I've just done a Ping test with macs network utility here are the results
10 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 71.636/74.071/78.114/1.890 ms
Looks good to me, but internet download speed is terrible.
This is a fairly new occurance, the mac in question was working at full speed originally.
