    Hi!

    I got my iMac a few days ago, and couldn't be happier. No hardware issues here.. :)

    However, I notice that the WiFi speed is very slow. This is very noticable when downloading files through Safari, and in general when downloading through other programs. When I'm in Windows 7 (bootcamp) then the Internet WiFi speed is at maximum as usual.
    Does anyone know what the problem is with OSX? Any way to fix this?
    Thanks!

    Fixed. :)

    I fooled around with some settings in my router, and now it works great.
