I'm connected to my universities network. For wifi, I usually get speeds in excess of 60 mbit/s. When I'm connected to ethernet (wifi is spotty sometimes) it's super slow. I only get 9 mbit/s for down and up. Meanwhile, my roommates computer gets the same speeds on both ethernet and wifi (using the same cable that I'm using)


I have a late 2009 macbook pro with the NVIDIA model # MCP79-1
