On campus I'm required to connect to the Internet via a PPPoE connection and VPN. I had a MBP running Tiger and Leopard, and now have a MB running Leopard, and both have been rather slow when connecting to the Internet. When I connect via Windows in boot camp, the Internet is rather fast. Using the BBC iPlayer I can easily watch a tv show, where if I try the same thing in OS X I get about 5-10 seconds of playing and then a 30 second wait. Clearly it is an issue with OS X handling the connection. I am wondering what can I do to make it faster? I have the PPPoE connecting sending PPPoE echo packets and using verbose logging. The VPN uses 128 bit encryption, uses verbose logging, and "send all traffic over VPN" is not clicked. I have disabled IPv6 for both connections and the Ethernet connection as well. Thank you for any help you can give.
