    I have been having trouble with my download speeds as of late. They are incredibly slow for my ISP connection speed (6Mg). I had the cable people out to test the speed and they showed a side by side speed test between a laptop running vista and my Imac G5 running 10.3. There was a huge difference in download/upload speed. Is there some settings or upgrade I can do to get my connection to the internet faster?

    Thanks for the help

    Is your iMac connected via ethernet or by an AirPort? Have you changed any network settings?

    Have you tried a SpeedTest you'll get the results for internet connection on the mac then and you'll see if its something has gone wrong on the mac or isp/router...
