Just wondering if anyone knows: Does OS X limit internet connectivity at all? I have just taken an ethernet cable and hooked it to my PS3, and changed DNS servers to something better -- my results at speedtest.net have gone way up. Originally speedtest.net would display about 4.25 Mb/s download speed on wireless -- now it displays 20.0 Mb/s That's a HUGE boost. Now. . on the iMac, I have done the same, only difference being that it isn't a single Ethernet cable. I manually spliced the wires like I've done before to change the ends that were missing. The mac displays 3.06 Mb/s What's going on here? I heard windows limits connections to "10 half open connections" or something like that (not too sure what that even means) -- so I was wondering if OS X does a similar thing. Another possible problem is the splice, but I did it twice with different ends, so I couldn't have missed a wire or anything. Is it possible that I'm using ends that aren't designed for that speed? I kind of thought an ethernet cable was an ethernet cable -- the wires inside were all the same, matching colors too.
