lokinz: Ok, so i finally got my ethernet going in OS X 10.4.4 and ran the speed test. I finally got my 3.5Mb vs the max 2.5mb i was getting in XP.
It's all very intersting, If I get time i will conduct a proper study of it, will fresh installs and all. But for now OS X on my Toshiba laptop is where I'm staying.
You have Apple OS X 10.4.4 on your Toshiba laptop?
I've never seen this before... :)
