Here is an example of what you'll be getting. I am using a Mikrotik as an AP and it can achieve speeds of up-to 170mbit over WiFi to my Alienware laptop however on my iMac I can't get anywhere close to that. So this means my iMac achieves slow WiFi performance on the 100mbit UFB it is connected to:




VS Ethernet:



Macs simply don't perform as well as their Windows counterparts over WiFi hence why I use Ethernet on my iMac. My Alienware achieves Ethernet-like results from a wee distance from the AP.

An RSSI of -7 means you are _way_ too close to the router to get good thruput. Move further away till you are at least as low as -30 for the signal then try it again.

Yes I know ;) the router is right behind the mac. Basically no matter where this mac is I'll never be able to get 100mbit over WiFi.
