Hi everyone, I have been facing painfully slow internet connection over the past few weeks, and it's been driving me up the wall. I use a 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo 2.5GB Ram iMac, using Leopard. I have about 100GB out of 250GB free. Since encountering this problem, I have used both Airport and Ethernet connection, even simultaneously sometimes, to no avail. As for me, the real mystery is the connection is only really slow on Safari and Firefox. If I'm using other applications that need the internet, like Skype or Bittorrent, there's no snag at all. In fact, on Bittorrent I've been downloading at up to 1000kbp/s. I have rang my service provider, who say there's no problem on their part, which seems likely considering that both my flatmates have no problems with their connections. I've run online internet speed testers, and the results are a respectable 7907kbp/s. Yes, and I've also ran a ping test on my modem, results are 0.014ms with no packet loss but on www.apple.com it was about 90ms, which seems pretty high? Have emptied cache on both safari and firefox. Also, repaired disk permissions on disk utility. nothing worked. If anyone could advise on how I could get my Safari and/or Firefox up to speed again, that would be most helpful. Thanks!!
