I have a Mac Pro running Mac OS 10.5.8. Over the past week or so have been experiencing very slow internet access. I believe this to be an issue with 10.5.8 and have found limited reports of the same issue in other forums but no resolutions. My system is fully patched with latest Apple software updates. I connect through an ethernet cable going to a Netgear ADSL combined hub/router/wireless router. I can connect to the wireless network on the same hub with a windows 7 laptop and my iPhone and attain reasonable (i.e. normal) speeds. I don't believe this to be a DNS issue given varying results when accessing through the same router. Re-performed speakeasy.net/speedtest tests consistently achieve significant (poor) results. On my Mac I achieve 'down' speeds lower than my 'up' speed. The same test on the windows laptop achieves a 'down' speed a factor of ten greater than my 'up' speed. I understand 10.6.x doesn't have this issue but I am loathed to upgrade just at the moment. And indeed why should I if this is a bug in 10.5.8? Can anyone shed any light on my problem? Has anyone experienced the same problem and found a fix?
