OS X :: New And MAC Throttling Download Speeds

Jun 5, 2010

Im here on a mission to find out why my macbook running snow leopard will only give me bang on 20mb download when every other windows machine in my house is giving me 50mb. I have tried to do a bit of google searching but don't seem to be getting anywhere. I assume it must be the macbook and not any router settings etc?

OS X :: Mac Mini's Download Speeds Drastically Slower Than That Of MacBook Pro?

Aug 29, 2010

I download a lot of things and like high speeds, especially when I should be getting them.

The majority of the time my MacBook Pro downloads at about 1.7-1.8mb/s (as I have a 15MB/s internet service) which is terrific! I sit up in my room, a floor higher than the router and download away at great speeds.

But, if I go to download something on the Mini (and this only seems to be happening lately, oddly enough) it barely ever hits 1mb/s, is normally at 400-500kb/s and drops to as low as 90kb/s sometimes!

What can be done about this?

OS X :: How To Control Upload / Download Speeds

Sep 26, 2006

I know there are a ton of products out there which help to 'increase' your download speed. I am looking for an application that can control the download/upload speed.. slow it down or increase it.

Also, is it possible to slow down the download rate.. but keep the upload rate the same? Tried looking for products which can achieve this but can't seem to find any.

Software :: Different Download/upload Speeds?

Nov 14, 2008

I have a MacPro and a newer iMac in my office. When I do speedtest.net from my MacPro, I get 3-4Mbs download usually, sometimes <1Mb download and sometimes 10-20 Mbs download. My wifes iMac consistently gets 15-25Mbs download and faster uploads. It doesn't matter what browser I use to test the computers speeds, she has a consistently blazing fast and mine sucks.

Of course, she doesn't have a lot of applications on hers, because the bulk of the work is done on my MacPro. Is there some pref files that I can delete or other resolutions?

IMac :: Slow Download Speeds For Certain Files - Why?

Nov 26, 2010

I have the 27" inch quad core i7 imac I just got a few days ago. Some reason for certain things like d/ling the vlc players its taking a few minutes to d/l a 24 meg file. With this type of computer, it should take like 3 seconds to d/l a small file like that. I have a fast internet connection, don't understand why that's happening.

MacBook Air :: Why Wifi Download Speeds So Slow

Nov 1, 2010

I'm beginning to wonder if Apple put a lousy Airport card in the new MBA. No matter what the wifi hotspot, I get downloads of 2MB. I just bought a new Airport Extreme at home and I really thought the MBA would be faster.

Am I missing something here? Do I have to "match up" the MBA with my Extreme to use the fast "N" connection? Or is there some network setting to tweak on the new MBA?

Applications :: Slow Download Speeds - Experimenting With Torrent

Apr 27, 2010

I just started to use 10mbps instead of my old 1mbps. But it looks like I'm having some issues. First of all I'm using the port 27960 for bitTorrent and it is properly forwarded. (I have a Tilgin modem, it was really hard to forward). I was using uTorrent app with my 1mbps internet and it was doing fine. I was able to download at full speed (100kB/s). But when I changed my ISP things started to change.

The Test:
-I'm downloading 5 of the most popular torrent files. My friends with the same ISP as me can download these torrents 2MB/s at their homes.
-I'm using Vuze, uTorrent and Transmission as the torrent app.
On all applications my Port seems to be open. I have green light.
On Vuze;
-It is a little complicated for me. And it hangs usually. So I'm not using it.
On uTorrent;
-My download speeds up to max 250-300kB/s (Total download, not per torrent.)
On Transmission;
-Well, this is the strangest. My download speed goes up to 700kB/s. But it goes like 5kB/s, 15kB/s, 3kB/s, 1kB/s, 400kB/s, 600kB/s, 3kB/s. Slowest speed for a second and highest for another. It doesn't stand still. It goes up and down continuously.

So I had a phone call to my ISP and they said there is no problem with the lines. Than, I tested with "speedtest.net" and "speakeasy.net/speedtest/". All turned out perfect! (9.7mbps to 10.1mbps) Than I tested real download speed with Firefox.[URL] It is downloading with 980kB/s. Perfect again. But when it comes to torrents, something goes wrong. I'm not using any antivirus or firewall.

MacBook Pro :: Slow Download Speeds On Macs V's Windows?

Apr 29, 2012

i have newish MBP and iMac.  I also run several windows 7 based pc's.  Over the last couple of weeks the download speed on both mac's has declined badly.  Trying to download drivers for an HP printer yesterday and was downloading at around 25kbps on both macs, ended up downloading on windows pc at around 800kbps instead, same with any other downloads, was getting over 1.2mbps on windows last night whilst my macs struggle toexceed 30kbps making them almost unusale.  I am a relative newcomer to apple, love build quality and feel but am nor too happy with this situation, have tried using different internet connections too - tethering to my cell, same result - 2 different machines so it seems to me the issue sits somewhere within Lion.

MacBook

PowerPC :: Slow Internet Downloading Speed / Download Speeds On Average Around 405kbps

May 2, 2010

i've got a 6 year old 12 inch powerbook G4 1.33 ghz that has internet speeds around 5177kbps, but overall its a bit dated sooo I wanted something a bit more new. I recently picked up a white 2.4 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook, HOWEVER the internet wireless speeds on it is dismal in comparison. I'm getting download speeds on average around 405kbps and upload speeds are pretty much non-existant! I've matched both of them to the same internet settings and they are both running 10.5.8. So again I'm stumped and if anybody can give me some idea as to what to do, Id greatly appreciate it!

MacBook Air :: Completely No CPU Throttling At All?

Nov 1, 2010

There have been many brief posts mentioning that unlike previous MBAs, the new MBAs do not slow down the CPU when heat goes beyond a certain point. Does this mean there is completely no CPU throttling at all? Or that it still throttles, but at a higher heat level? If there is completely no CPU throttling, then logically it should fall back to another common method of handling overheating which is to automatically turn off the machine (not a very elegant method, but at least it's something). Do the new MBAs do this? If not, how do they handle overheating?

Applications :: LF IP Traffic Throttling From Skilled Network Admin?

Jan 11, 2009

I am looking for some advice from some pro network admins / elite type users.

I have some specific problems I am trying to address and could use a pointer in the right direction in terms of what software to get.

a) I'm looking for any software suite / program, MAC or PC, which can enable me to detect TRAFFIC on MY OWN network, and possibly correlate that traffic with known port numbers to create a graph / picture / etc of WHAT KIND of traffic a specific IP address / interface is transacting.

The purpose of this is to attempt to pinpoint how much torrenting / limewire / etc is going on on my network, and from what computers.

b) Any advice on any wireless router brand / model that enables IP / computer based bandwidth throttling such that I can clamp down on people who leech and drive my ping times through the roof.

This is a home network, college residence with approx 10 different users on the network. I have full control over the cable modem and the router. It is a consumer model (netgear) with limited configuration options, but very good wireless reception.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Software Update Downloads Are Horribly Slow - Is AT&T Throttling

Feb 16, 2012

I have experienced horrible software update download speeds for two weeks. www.speedtest.net and other test sites show good performance (usually about 10 mbps down and 1.5 mbps up). The software update download progress seems to be interrupting and then continuing. Its been grinding out 1.09 GB for the snow leopard combined update for over 6 hours this afternoon. Anyone else having problems with software update? I'm beginning to wonder if AT&T is throttling my internet traffic. Is there a tool to check this?

Mac Pro :: Different Speeds On 2 Identical Drives?

Nov 13, 2010

I have 2 WD Caviar Black drives that are installed in my Mac Pro. Both show the exact same part number in Disk Utility, both are less than half full, both verify fine with Disk Utility. However one shows 125-130 MB/s RW with AJA and the other only delivers 90 MB/s. What gives? Just a sub-standard drive? THey are in adjacent bays in the MP, used as is - nothing changed. They are OEM drives thru Amazon from a few months ago. Both were erased and formatted prior to putting them in the MP a few weeks ago.

Mac Pro :: Hardware Acceleration - Browser Speeds

Dec 26, 2010

Since we still seem to lag without hardware acceleration, just thought I'd give the new opera 11 a run, not quite scientific, but just my own interest.

On Peacekeeper -
Opera 11.00.1156 - 7213
Safari 5.0.3 - 5116
Chromium 10.0.603.0 - 5088
Firefox 4.0b9 (20101226) - 4762

And then a javascript (sunspider) test, but only with chrome, since thats what I use. Chromium 10.0.603.0 - 243ms. Opera 11.00.1156 - 273ms. So looks like its now on par in the javascript and the best at html5 rendering so far interesting, also finally has extensions!

Mac Pro :: SATA Copying Speeds Too Slow?

May 8, 2009

Based on what I've read about SATA, my Western Digital 1 TB Black Caviar drives should be able to read and write faster than 50 MB/sec. But that's the best I've gotten from anything. I thought I could expect 300 MB/sec, or 150 at the very least. What's the deal? This is a 2008 8 core 2.8 Mac Pro, by the way.

OS X :: Ultra Slow DL Speeds On I5 Mac Wireless But PC Is Normal...

Feb 19, 2010

I just got my first Mac last week and I love it to death except for one thing. I can only get D/L speeds of about .7 - 1mbps wirelessly on my Linksys N router but my PC gets the full "advertised speed" (about 5.8) on wireless. This is very annoying and I have no idea what it could be. I don't really know what it does but I did some research and some people in other places recommended clearing the cache and I did. Nothing works, no reboots, no unpluggs, nothing.

Mac Mini :: Extra Memory Definitely Speeds Things Up

Jul 3, 2010

The extra memory just came for my new Mac Min i, and I can definitely say that it speeded things up. When I posted earlier about being disappointed. that was with 2 gb stock memory. I put in a total of 4 gb today. Turns out, now get this, if I had ordered the mini with 4 gb to start, it would only have cost $100 more from Apple. Getting it from OWC cost $120.00. Apple would have been cheaper on memory! Go figure. Anyway, 4 gb seems to be the sweet spot for general use like for me.

Mac Mini :: Different Cache Speeds - Put More RAM

Jul 6, 2010

I have a Mac Mini Core Duo 1.66. Macs are VERY expensive here, and I know I cannot change my crappy Intel 950GMA video card. So What else can I do? I've read about people using Core 2 Duo processors, which one is the best I could get for my Mini? The processors aren't that expensive here, but there's the fact that a lot of them use different cache speeds. Also, with another processor, could I put more RAM in it, since my mini is limited to 2GB (it came with 512MB and I replaced it with 2 after 1 week). Anyone could tell me which is the best processor I could put in such a machine, since I'm stuck with this stupid video card and answer me if I can use more RAM if I upgrade the processor?

Mac Pro :: What File Transfer Speeds Possible Over Gigabit Ethernet

Apr 9, 2012

Our still photographic studio has a range of MACs all connected via a gigabit D-Link switch to a series of Buffalo NAS raids. Wiring is CAT5e, all devices have gigabit ethernet cards and the link lights on the switch suggest that all devices are connected at that speed.We currently get file transfer rates of between 5 and 12 MB/s depending on network traffic.We would like to upgrade our NAS to a NAS/SAN, preferably using the existing wiring (and avoid the expense of Fibrenet). 50 or 60MB/s would be great if possible.Any suitable architecture and Hardware. Cable lengths are a maximum of 30 metres.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Slow Fileshare Transfer Speeds Using SMB

Intel Mac :: CPU Fan Speeds Up To Max Speed On Either OS X Or Bootcamp?

May 19, 2012

after a while, my iMac starts running its cpu fan at max speed. This occurs on OSX and in Windows. The issue does not seem to be temprerature related. I messured the temperatures via software and even if the cpu is at 30 degrees C , it runs full speed. I can't throttle the fan via SMC Fan Control or something. It just keeps running at full speed. I tried resetting the SMC multiple times without any help.How I tried to reset the SMC: 

1. Shut down

2. Pull all plugs for 15 secs++

3. Reconnect evertything

4. wait at least 5 more secs

5. boot the system 

Apple Hardware Test reported no problems.

Mac Pro :: External Hard Disk No Longer Operates At USB2 Speeds?

May 6, 2012

I have an external Lacie 1 TB hard disk which used to operate at USB2 speeds, but ever since I upgraded to my my Intel Mac Pro (from a G5) it only operates at USB1 speeds regardless of which USB port I plug it into. When I open up System Profiler, it reports "speed up to 12 Mb/sec" which of course is only USB1.1. It used to show "speed up to 480 Mb/sec". Do I need to reformat it something?  Can I force it to connect at USB2 speeds?

Mac Pro :: Very Slow Transfer Speeds With External Hard Drives Through Firewire And USB?

Nov 30, 2008

My external drives transfer very slowly on my MacPro. I've been searching for answers and have turned up very little.

Just to make a note, I measured my disk speeds with both AJA System Test and copying files between drives and reading the Disk Activity in Activity Monitor.

I have 3 external drives, all MyBook Premium or Professional, 1x 500GB, 1x 1TB and 2x 1TB in RAID 0. I had them on Firewire 400 and the RAID 0 2TB one on Firewire 800. My transfers on FW were all around 24MB/sec on all drives (much less than what I should be getting with FW400). I then read somewhere that the FW bus on the MacPro uses the slowest speed connected for all FW connections. So I unplugged everything but the FW800 Raid 0 drive and my transfer rate jumped to 40-60MB/sec. This is much better, but still about half or so of what I expect it should be producing from an external RAID 0 setup.

To keep my FW800 backup drive faster, I've plugged the other two into USB2.0. The transfer speeds on both drives are now hideous, around 10-15MB/sec. This is so slow, but I'm not sure what to try to fix my speeds.

The HD's in the external drives are all 7200rpm, and all should be transferring at a higher rate. Do you have any suggestions or ideas? Ideally I'd like to get everything transferring at rates they should be transferring at, but I'll settle with my current FW800 speed of 40-60MB/sec if I can get my other two drives transferring at a non-snail pace.

Is this a common issue? I can't believe I'm the only one plugging multiple external hard drives into their Mac Pro. I hope someone has a fix or solution for this. I'm all ears!
