I'm actually posting for my brother, but, I have observed. Hardware: 2010 13" MBP, 4GB RAM The Problem: The internet operates slow. Gmail takes forever to send, youtube vids pause then start again, websites seem slow to load (like CNN). Speedtest: 9 MBPS Down/ .4 up Ping: average 12 ms Router, had a Belkin N router, now replaced it with a NETGEAR - N600 Dual Band Wireless-N Router with Gigabit and USB Called Time Warner, the confirmed no issues. Called Netgear, they went through and changed channels and confirmed overall settings. Tried Open DNS numbers. Tried the 188.8.131.52 /.2 numbers as mentioned in other forum posts. The computer spends 90% of it's time using the web, MS Office, Final Draft and sometimes Lightroom. Nothing odd running in the background either. We have also run Onyx and cleaned out all the caches, fixed permissions and so on. The only thing possible, is the netgear is set up with 2 hotspots - one which works for his iphone and one for the computer. Something about one at 2.4 and one at 5 GHz - i can't recall exactly. Anyway, any thoughts? Thanks.
