Intel Mac :: FTP Download Speed Has Decreased?

May 17, 2012

After many years  on PC's, I just got myself a 21.5 iMac.  Everthing is great so far except for my ftp downloads. Last week on my pc the download speeds would vary from 2 to 12 Mbs per second depending on conditions.  Now on the iMac I am lucky to get .5 to 1 mbs.  Could some longtime Mac user share a few tips on network settings to improve my ftp downloads??  I ran the speed test on my Comcast support site... and it showed my download speed as 23Mbs. 

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4), using Filezilla or CuteFTP for Mac

MacBook :: Download Speed Decreased With Airport

Sep 9, 2010

It started 2 months ago, ever since I got my machine back from the top case being replaced. I've had some Airport problems, the first thing is distance. I used to be able to go all over the place in the house and it worked. It says I have a full signal strength, but it's it and miss on it working from my living room (which is really only 3 rooms away with not very thick walls). I used to be able to sit in the living room and work on my computer for hours, but like I said it's it and miss on the connection. One minute it's working the next it's not.

Another room that seems to be the bedroom, which basically 2 rooms away but can see the router down the hall thing. The bedroom door opens to those two rooms. Here it works, but I sometimes have to wait up to 3 or 4 minutes the web page to come up. Safari 5.02 is the worse compared to Fire Fox.

My download speeds have decreased as well, my top download speed is 160k/sec but lately it's been 140k-120k/sec.

Now that I have giving you too much information, do you think it might be the MacBook or the Router. When they where putting the new top case on it could they moved the Airport antenna somehow. OR should I reinstall Mac OS X thinking that might fix the problem.

Applications :: Safari Download Speed / Cutting Download Speed

Apr 9, 2009

I've got a real odd problem with safari 4. For some reason it is cutting my download speeds in about 1/2 from my server and many other places.

If I restart safari I will be able to download close to my 18 Mbps for a little bit but then it will just start to slow down and after about 30 minutes it will be down to about 6 - 8 Mbps.

My iMac has had a sudden decrease in wifi download speed. Upload speed hasn't changed and all othe connected devices still work as normal (the iPad still clocks in at around 30mbps and the iMac used too, now it's at 5.0 mbps).

I generally get about 700kbs download speed, which is what my ISP (Sky uk) tells me I SHOULD have, but they also tell me that my router upload speed should be similar and it's not anywhere close to it.

OS X :: Download Speed From Internet Is Only 12 Kb/s

Sep 28, 2010

I am sorry if i have posted this in the wrong topic, i'm not sure where this would go. I am trying to download a file off the internet, but my download speed is only 12 kb/s on average (Sometimes it will go up to 13 and sometimes down to 9). I have every application that could be using internet turned off and still no help. I have also set my utorrent to unlimited download speed but it still stays on 12! I have a good router so i don't think thats the problem. What am i doing wrong? Is there a program i can use to speed it up?

Slow Macbook Pro Download Speed

Jun 12, 2012

I'm running the macbook pro 2,3 GHz intel core i5 version 10.6.8. Me and my friend are on the same wifi connection, but his macbook (thats 1 year older than mine) downloads 10 times faster. I'm getting around 0.24 Mbps while my friend gets around 1,8 Mbps. My internet is really slow and I have trouble opening a lot of internet sites. I wonder if ive done something to my settings so that the download limit is limited or something.

MacBook :: What Software Can Download To Speed Up The 10.7

Jun 19, 2012

My laptop is fully up-to-date, with not a large amount of programs on it. There is plenty of hardrive space because I took all of my music off, but nothing seems to work. I've had it for 4 1/2 years. Any recommended software (or even do-it-yourself) ideas to clean the system up and speed it up?

IMac :: Network Connection With Low Download Speed

Nov 7, 2009

I am a new Mac user. I bought a 27" iMac today to replace a dead PC. My download speeds are AWFUL on the Mac. While using the PC, my maximum download speed on a 6 mbit connection was over 850kb/sec. Now, with the mac, I can barely manage 250K/sec downloads. I am using all the same equipment and cables as before (not using the wireless, and I have it disabled), and if I plug in another PC into my router, it will get the 850+kb/sec download speeds, no problem at all. Is there a setting somewhere that I can change to get things working properly? Poor speeds occur no matter what program I am downloading from, whether it be Safari, FTP, or whatever. I just installed parallels, with windows, and I can download at my old speeds. How do I do it in native Mac mode then?

OS X :: Large Number Of Incoming Message - Download Speed Goes To Zero

Nov 28, 2010

I'm using a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo imac with 3GB memory running OS 10.5.8. I've been using mac mail at home, work and on the move for years and have only ever had a couple of minor problems with it. However last Friday, after using it normally in the office, I went out, leaving the machine to sleep. When I came back my mail wouldn't download past message number 7 and it said there were 400+ emails to download when it should have been maximum 10. I tried to shut down mail but every time I tried to shut it down it wouldn't shut down.

I had to 'force quit' even though 'force quit' didn't say 'not responding' alongside mail. When I reopened mail the number of 'new' messages dropped to only 170 odd, but still I can't get past the 10th email and the download speed goes to zero. Also I can't delete some existing messages in my inbox. They go light grey but don't delete. I am able to use mail as normal on my home mac which uses mail with the same account settings as my office mac. I can also access my emails via my iPhone and webmail.

And this problem is not only with Safari, the same is with Fugu. It's a hardware problem or software? Wireless router works great.

MacBook :: Fast Download Speed But Very Slow Browsing?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm not sure if many others have found this problem but my internet has been suffering recently.

I took a speed test on which stated that my download speed was 9.7mbps which is what I'm paying for, but still my browsing speed is ridiculously slow on all websites.

I've tried using firefox and chrome but they all seem to be having the same problem.

I am connected by ethernet as airport has full connection but can't seem to load anything. I have also tried to configure my ethernet connection manually as i read that this would help the issue.

MacBook Pro :: Slow Torrent/download Speed - How To Make It Fast

Aug 31, 2010

I recently purchased my first Mac computer, a MacBook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo processor. I receive free internet included in my apartment rent, and I don't use a router, instead I simply plug into the wall. I previously used a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista and there was no problems. I am not very knowledgeable about computers really, especially when it comes to the internet. I need advice on how to speed my downloads, but speak to me like you would 2 y/o.

I can't seem to find anything that applies to me or I can understand. I'm currently using Transmission for torrents and Safari for browsing, but my general internet connection outside of downloads seems to be fine.

MacBook Pro :: Use Nzbdrop To Download Large Files - High Fan Speed?

Feb 16, 2010

Whenever I use nzbdrop to download large files, my late 2008 MBP fans go nuts (4500rpm or more). As soon as the donwload is finished, they ramp down again. I find this very strange, it's not that downloading is that taxing on the cpu is it (temp is around 80?C).

App Store :: Download Speed Of Purchased Item (OS X Lion) Very Slow

May 7, 2012

I purchased OS X Lion this afternoon and started the download, 5 hours later it's only downloaded 1.5gb and it's saying it's got another 9 hours to go!!?? The App store is downloading at 105kb/s (that is Bytes per second, not Bits per second). If I download something from iTunes or dropbox I get about 800kb/s.Why is the App store so slow?
