The internet speed that you see in windows are the theoretical maximum value not the actual one. Go to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ and click on a nearest server to see your download and upload speed. These are close to your actual download and upload speed.
You can go to Network Preferences, choose Ethernet or Airport, click the 'Advanced' button and then the 'Ethernet' tab to see the theoretical speed as well.
Thank you for solving this question...and although I live in another country than US...speedtest is also in my country and it worked!!
at the ehternet tab in network preferences the answer is 100baseTX which means nothing to me
I still think however that the mac is slow with internet unfortunately. Many sites I have to wait to get connection...something I don't experience with the same connection (even the same ethernet cable) when I plug it into the windows pc...strange
But thanks again for answering the question!!
