    Internet speed is now very slow on my Mac Mini (mid 2010), but normal speed on my PC.

    This just started happening. I don't think I changed anything recently. Maybe a recent update to Sierra 10.12.6. and a recent boot up problem.

    Same thing whether I have the Mac or PC hooked up with ethernet or wireless. Same cables, etc.

    So, it seems it was my Firewall that was choking my Internet speed. I turned the Firewall off and bingo, speed was back to normal. Does the Firewall choke everyone's internet speed? What good is that?
