Upload Speeds, Fast on PC, Slower on Mac

Message 1 of 6

I have FIOS Internet 100/100.

When I do a speedtest from my mac I get upload speeds closer to 40-60mbs.

If I use the same mac but boot into windows using bootcamp it shows proper speeds of 100.

 

Are there any special tweaks or configurations I should make on my mac.

 

Thanks in advance.

Wireless or wired?

If you have both and are doing wireless, try wired in both cases.

If only wireless, what model router do you have?
