I do not know as much as most of you guys about computers for a start. I have an iMac. Runs OSX version 10.9.
Our internet connection is terribly slow it is so frustrating; but I do not know what to do about it. Here is info for anyone to give pointers:
We have a BT hub 4 thing that does everything.
Our area does not have BT infiniti. When we moved a couple of months ago, we were asked to buy a speed increasing device that you plug into the electrical socket. We have done that; no improvement in speed.
We live in an inner city, heavily built up area: loads of other networks around.
Our smart TV is connected to the Wifi and BT hub thing.
Our study where main computer is, is towards the back of the house hence furthest from main Wifi BT thing.
I have backed up most data from computer so computer is lean and mean- or so I think.
We have about 7 other devices connected to our Wi-fi in the house: our i phones, 2 other computers, wireless printer
Not all other devices are in use at all times so as to compete with our home Wifi.
We do not use a router other than the BT one.
I was impressed by some posts that took screen shots of some SSIDer type stuff that everyone commented on. If it is a red herring, please ignore me. If not, please help me by suggesting where I could look 'inside' the software of the machine; all help gratefully received! Thank you.
