    I'm getting fine speeds on my iPad but on my new rMBP (not even a day old) it is like 1 or 2 kbps! i cannot download anything, browsing is fast as always but download speeds are slower than dial up.

    its happening from the time i first used it except that speeds were 30-40 that time which is also super slow.
    everything works well on my iPad and other windows/mac laptops so there is something with rmbp only.
    I've tried installing from several sources, still the same result.

    also, I'm hardly 10 feet away from my wifi router and the signal too is full.

    do you know anything about fixing it?

    thanks!

    You couldn't get fast browsing if your download speed was actually 2kbps at all time. This could be a software issue. What are you downloading with? A browser? Torrent client? Try another browser/client to see if speed is normal.

    What have you done besides moving yourself around? Reset browser?

    How far are you from the router antenna? What is your home made from? Wood? Brick?

    I ask, because when it comes to wireless, building materials count to strength and reception.

    10 feet, if not closer.

    it made from bricks and cement but theres not even a paper in between the router antenna and the laptop. its all in the line of sight.:mad:

    reset the router, reset the modem, reset the computer. run the speedtest on the ipad and the computer and report what you get.

    Had the same exact problem today. Go into your router settings and set your router to channel 10. That worked for me.
