    I am new to Mac so I am clueless here. Ive been using my laptop and been getting a steady 1.5-2.0mb/s and now im on this iMac and I am only getting 6kbp/s how do I fix this? This is a new iMac right out of the box btw.

    What connection type? Both on wireless?

    If so is the iMac really far away from the router compared? Nothing interfering?
