What Mac do you have? What version of OS x are you running? How are you connecting, wirelessly or wired?

Are you connected via wireless N?Hold down the 'option' key while clicking on the Airport symbol in the menu bar. This will show what the connection speed you connecting with.

Plus do a Reset on NVRAM and see if it connects any faster.
