I changed to mac a week ago & found that the download speed is much slower than that of my previous pc. I like mac so far but the dl speed is unbearable. I have the most recent macbook and broadband. I tried different browsers 'Camino' 'Firefox' and also made sure the built in firewall was open. Then I downloaded Azureus, transmission, tomato, and some more. The best of them was transmission but still 4kb/s?! Azureus had 1.5kb/s. I live in Sydney and its broadband speed is slower than a dial up of England. OMG. But when I had a pc, it was at least 50kb/s. There's a 256 mb file I regularly get & it used to take 1 to 2 hrs to download, now suddenly it takes 2 and half days. I searched various forums to solve this problem and found no answer. Some say the Mac is slower but shouldn't be this much. And others say Mac shows an honest number but then it should take about same time period. What do you expert guys think? Do you think my Internet provider doesn't support Mac? Is it even possible? Or did I miss something to configure? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
