    As the title says, I'm proudly purchased a MacBook Air for the time. Love it! However, the download speed of my computer is really really bad. Made a speed test and got 20-25 megabit but when I download things I only get 1-1,5 megabit. I started up my half alive PC and downloaded things with a 15-20 megabit. I connect the wifi to a Tiny Dovado with a 4G stick. I there something I can do with the macbook or in the router?

    Do you means 2.4GHz? Try some different channels and see if that helps.

    Remember that there is a difference between megabit (Mb) and megabyte (MB).
    Could it be the website you are downloading from?

    I have tried different channels but to no avail. Same site with my pc downloads triple the speed.
    I can either choose 20 MHz or 40 MHz.

    Is the Tiny Dovado updated with the latest firmware? Beyond that I would suggest you contact Dovado support directly and see if they have seen your issue and has a suggestion.
