    I have an aluMac, and am connected to the internet wirelessly via Dlink DI-624 Router. I currently have both my firewalls switched on, as well as Little Snitch running. While they are going, my internet seems to slow down a lot. As soon as i remove the firewalls/little snitch, it speeds up again. is this normal?

    Define firewalls.

    And try testing each one individually to see if just one of them causes the problem.

    I use both the built in firewall, and also my router firewall.

    I tried both individually, both with and without LS. My internet still slows down. It's not a lot, but it's noticeable.
