    Question Download speed: Laptop 13.6 mbps, Imac 7.2

    Using speedtest.net, and the same hard wired (Cat5) cable connected directly into the modem, my laptop (Yosemite 10.10.5) gets on average 13.6 mbps, while my Imac (10.6.8) gets only 7.2.

    If pertinent, on the Imac, I checked under Utilities>Network Utility, and it reports active, 100 Mbit/s, sent packets 68,495, received 66,028, no recv errors or collisions. The vendor is NVIDIA, model MCP79-1.

    Anyone have a suggestion why this older Imac gets just over half the download speed of my laptop?

    Possibly down to the differences in the network cards built-in to each Mac....that would be my first guess.
