    I was checking my ISP speed and see that I get 8X faster upload than download on my mac minis. Used ookla speedtest. I have FIOS I got 2 mbps on download and upload 16mbps. Can anyone help me out on this? Im stumped. Using an AEBS with FIOS piped right into it. This is wireless to 2 mac minis up stairs about 3 walls/F2 floors from router. Signal to noise ratio is hovering around 20 upstairs. Would that do it? Moved my mbp around the house and see ratio changes here and there, best I got was just above 40. Also mbp speedtest downstairs but a couple of walls away from AEBS gets 55 download and 39 upload. Took it upstairs near my mac minis and I get 51 download and 41 upload. So whats up with the minis? They are both late 2009 models. Nothing directly on top of them.

    Thinking about adding another AEBS upstairs in bridge mode to see if that helps.

    Any help appreciated
