I know this is probably the wrong place for this post, but I was helped here with my download speed questions.
I am just wondering whether there is any setting I can change in Safari or my Network connection that will improve my upload speed.

I improved my download speed by changing my network settings, so is it possible to change something else to improve my upload speed. I am only getting 0.08 MBs for upload and this seems to effect my ability to use my MobileMe account.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

    Hi Muz,

    First and foremost, what speeds do you think you should be seeing? What does your ISP claim to give you (and who are they)?

    HI,

    Try these DNS numbers.

    Go to System Preferences/Network/Advanced/DNS.
    Add these numbers to DNS Servers

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220

    Click OK. hese are safer/faster than most ISP's DNS numbers, and have been patched against DNS poisoning.

    HI Muz,

    *"if there is any way of getting my upload speed adjusted in the same way."*

    Definitely call your service provider.

    And check out this site... might have some ideas for you.
