    Can you tell us what specific router you have and the network settings used on the router and your MBP?

    Do any of the Windows machines upload something?



    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses. (see rule #3 under Minor Problems)

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    Sounds like another machine is using up all the bandwidth. Or do you have an old 802.11b/g router?

    My guess is that your routers not very good or someone else is using up all the speed by downloading something.

    Buy a new 802.11n wireless router and things will be a lot faster.
