I'm hoping someone who knows about these things can suggest an answer to this. I was fooling around yesterday and discovered that my wife's Mac G5, connecting to the same cable network through the same modem, has a download speed that's about 65% faster than my PC's. I've spent several hours trying to figure this out and doing everything I can think of to make the PC go faster, but the numbers remain the same. The last check was PC 4523/913 kbps versus Mac 7449/953 kbps. I'm not technosmart enough to do more than speculate about why this difference is occuring, let alone do anything about it; and if anyone could suggest something I would really appreciate it. The smug look on my wife's face is driving me crazy.
