Default 2.5MBS Wi-Fi Connection with OSX Normal?? - 03-17-2011, 09:21 PM

Title says it all I only get 2.5 MBS transfer with my Mini 10v Hackintosh

I bought this off a Hi-Fi Fourm member already hacked and was wondering if this is the best x-fer rate I can get?

It has a 2MB memory and 7200 RPM HHD ugrade but I think everything else is stock...

Is there something I need to change or check???

Thanks Much

MegaBytes per second or Megabits? Uppercase B should mean bytes, lowercase b should mean bits. Network speeds are commonly measured in bits, file transfers are commonly measured in bytes.

In my experience, 2.5 MBps (bytes) would be good for G WiFi. N WiFi should be several times faster.

If you have an N router, you should be able to upgrade the 10v's G WiFi card to an N one for $25 or less. The Intel 6200 or 6300 may be the best choice for a 10v with Windows or Linux. But I don't think the Intel cards will work in OSX, so you'll need to ask someone else for advice.

Thanks reflex

I just checked and what I thought was a 50 MBs connection to my server with wi-fi is only 1.5 MBs

So my 2.5 MBs is great..
