Slow network on Mavericks, fast on windows

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I'm connecting to the internet via a router modem supplied by my ISP. I've installed AppleIntele100e using tonnymac method but network seems even slower with it so I uninstalled and used the native drivers, the network always worked out of the box.

It's a bit faster but still not at the right speed, I'm getting 1.3MB - 1.4Mb max download speeds where on windows I'm always getting a steady 1.8-1.9Mb. There are a lot of pages I have to reload twice both in Safari, Chrome or Firefox.

I've searched the forum for the problem and saw that Apple to USB Ethernet might solve my problem but wanted to get your advice first.

I've tried changing the MTU and disable IPv6 but it doesn't seem to have helped.

 

Any advice?

I gave up on that driver/on-board nic on the board we have it just plain sucks under osx. I went with an add in pci-e card from Ebay. It works great and will max out my fiber optic connection (10MB/s or 80mb/s) if I get a fast server to download from, on my internal gigabit network close to 80-90MB/s during transfers. It needs the RealtekRTL8111.kext you can find on here not the driver from realtek the company which like the E1000 sucks I'm using the 1.2 RC2 version of the driver.

Damn. NICs that use 5 GHz are a bit of a problem in my country. This might sound strange to you but here in Israel if I decide to buy that card, I'd have to get a confirmation from the Ministry of Communications... Trust me, people and importers here can sooner reach the sky than get a confirmation from that office. And 5 GHz routers that are sold here (you could count them one one hand) are "castrated". They don't and can't support all channels because the IDF will not open them (without compensation) because it got "special" equipment that use those frequencies.

I have no problem getting DLink DWA-556 which I read worked out of the box for older version of OS X but I've got no idea if it supports Mavericks. Anyone had experience with Apple USB to Ethernet?

 

Speedtest gives me my correct download speed which is 15.72 but I'm getting no where close to 1.9MB download speed.
