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)

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

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.
