My iMac won't upload.  Running SpeedTest gives a decent Ping for this area and the expected download speed but generates an upload error -- meaning that I can't use the Internet.  What do I do?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Are you posting from a different computer then?

     

    Which exact speedtest is it?

    When it jumps to the upload, does it say loading for an instant?

     

    I assume you tried different servers?

     

    What do you get for raw speeds here, for both Java & Flash, DSL Reports...

    Just a guess...Apple has recently disabled Java as a default setting. Perhaps the upload test relies on java to post results?

    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2712

     

    10.5.x/10.6.x/10.7.x instructions...

     

    System Preferences>Network, click on the little gear at the bottom next to the + & - icons, (unlock lock first if locked), choose Set Service Order.

     

    The interface that connects to the Internet should be dragged to the top of the list.

     

    Instead of joining your Network from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed.

     

    For 10.5/10.6, System Preferences>Network, unlock the lock if need be, highlight the Interface you use to connect to Internet, click on the advanced button, click on the DNS tab, click on the little plus icon, then add these numbers...

     

    208.67.222.222

    208.67.220.220

     

    Click OK.

     

    Also, turn off IPv6:

    System Preferences » Network » AirPort » TCP/IP tab » Configure IPv6

     

    Or whatever Interface you use.

    Great news, thanks!

     

    What it does is set a bunch of new prefs to use in the New Location, it doesn't get rid of the problem ones, it just doesn't use them.
