While I was at Yodobashi Camera today I got a Thunderbolt to Gigabit ethernet adapter for my MacBook Pro. I figure, since I’m paying for the high speed fiber optic (Sony Nuro), why limit my self to wi-fi speeds at home? The LAN adapter is just $24.
The screenshots show the before (over wi-fi) and after (direct LAN connection) speeds.
On wi-fi it was 143.8 Mbps down and 181.5 Mbps up.
After connecting the adapter and making a direct LAN connection to the router, the speed is 783.2 Mbps down and 940.1 Mbps up.
