I have a problem with my wife´s old iMac (24" mid-2007). Internet connection is way to slow. I´ve read through many forums to find a solution, but did not find anything.


Internet connection through wifi is at about 1kbit instead of the supposed 16kbit. All other Mac´s are fine within the same wireless network. Other user account works perfect. Ethernet connection works perfect. So I cleaned Safari´s Cache. Repaired rights. Rebooted. Checked Activity Monitor with no suspicious results. Deleted WLAN from networks pref pane. Deleted airport prefs, prefs from Library, deleted internetconfigpriv and internetconfig prefs from user´s Library. Deleted wifi-keyword from keychain. Readded wifi connection. Still the problem persists.


Any other idea what to try? I´m not fond of reinstalling the complete machine …


Thanks, Till
