Hi, and thanks for the reply! I got my MacBook Pro in mid-2009. I downloaded the latest nForce drivers from nVidia, but upon installing them, there is no change in my Ethernet port. There is a day & night difference between transferring files on my network when I boot into OS X, compared to Windows 7. I get roughly 300 Mbps writing file/500 Mbps reading files in Windows 7. In OS X I get roughly 900 Mbps writing files/1200 Mbps reading files.
P.S.- Incidentally, I sent nVidia an email about the issue, and they replied:
Thank you for contacting NVIDIA Customer care.
This is Shailendra, assisting you in troubleshooting the issue you are experiencing.
I understand that you are experiencing issue with Ethernet speed on your Macbook (laptop).
This issue may occur due to motherboard drivers including ethernet driver and I am sorry to inform you that we don't have motherboard driver or Ethernet driver for Macbook or laptop therefore for getting updated driver for motherboard you have to contact laptop manufacturer.
The nForce motherboard drivers on NVIDIA website are only for nForce chipset for desktop computers and we don't have motherboard driver for laptop motherboard chipset.
We can only provide graphics driver for notebooks graphics card.
Please let us know if you need any further clarifications.
NVIDIA Customer Care
