Wireless... but interesting enough I think I had the same slow internet when I booted into windows.
Ok so the problem is with OSX and wifi. Plugged into the router I get 22 on windows and mac. Wireless I get about 16 in windows and an average of 2 on mac if I can even get the test to load.
Right after I test at 22 plugged in to the router I can unplug and switch to wireless which then will run around 16 as well.
But If i wait a few minutes then it drops back to around 2mbps.
I run these test with Speedtest.net
Ok that did not seem to help much on my account but when i tested my guest account I actually got about 4 down. but that was the first time I tested that account.
Here is what Disk Utility turned up....
For my Internal OS SSD
Verifying permissions for “SSD”

And this is what I got with my internal drive for my user files.
Verifying volume “HD”
Checking file systemPerforming live verification.
Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.
Checking extents overflow file.
Checking catalog file.
Checking multi-linked files.
Checking catalog hierarchy.

Checking volume information.
Invalid volume free block count
(It should be XXXXXXXXX instead of XXXXXXXXX
The volume HD was found corrupt and needs to be repaired.
Error: This disk needs to be repaired using the Recovery HD. Restart your computer, holding down the Command key and the R key until you see the Apple logo. When the OS X Utilities window appears, choose Disk Utility.
I can run disk utility through my backup partition to try and fix those but what would have caused that and could it possibly be related to my internet speed?
EDIT: Just ran another speed test and got 7 down 2 up still not 12 like what i should be able to get but its been very random on speed changes.
I tried your link but even after 7 slow megabytes it still did not show the file size so I stopped it and downloaded from Cnet. That version was not compatible with my OS. Is yours?
That appears not to have helped.
I was going to reinstall the OS until i remembered to give this a try so I don't mind doing that.
Do you have any more ideas i could try? I don't have a problem starting fresh Ive done it a few times its just time consuming.
ok just did a fresh install on 10.8
I loaded my account and installed flash
went to do a speed test.
my moms mac book air 18.07
My macbook pro 1.74
Fresh OS with nothing but flash installed...
Ok well I pressed and held the reset button for about 15 seconds.
I was expecting that to hard reset it but the custom network name stayed the same so I guess it was just a soft reset.
Any ways it appears to have fixed the problem. Ill come back it goes bad again. Thank you.
Nope every thing has been working great. Thank you for checking in.
