    Hi,

    So i have no problem with my Mac just note that!
    My mac is fast and fine..

    But if i come to download something on my Mac or Xbox, it is slow as fudge :p

    I am downloading the update for BFBC 2 on xbox atm, and it has taken me half an hour to do 14% and it took my mate (who lives about 10 min walk away from me) about 20 mins to complete the whole thing...

    The download is only 400MB!!

    Is there anyway i can speed up my download speed for my router
    (nothing to do with Mac or Xbox JUST router!)

    How fast of an internet connection are you paying for?

    this is most likely problem with your internet connection because even the basic routers should be able to do 30Mbit/s+ (for g standard box says 50 but idk if thats theoretical speed)

    We can't really tell you if the speeds are abnormal if you don't know what you're paying for...

    You have what my friend calls "Chinese Internet" or what people on Xbox call a "Wallmart Connection."
