    I have a mid 2010 iMac 27" 3.2Ghz i3 4GB ram 1TB hard drive space ATI HD4870...

    Running windows 7 x64 and OS X 10.6.6

    I am using a wireless internet source from nearby, and the connection works great on OS X when I boot into windows the internet is completely un-responisive and when it does work its slower then glass (for those of you who don't know glass is technically a liquid)


    I have no idea what the difference is...

    I am no Mac expert, but I am assuming that you are running Windows 7 as a virtual machine inside Mac OSX using VMWare Fusion or Parallels? If so, check your network settings for the virtual Windows 7 machine. You probably want the connection set to "bridging" mode?

    no its through boot camp (I want to play a game, and VMware and parallels have appaling frame rates) and the nearby wireless source is a unsecured 802.11n connection

    Review the forum rules, please. We do not support "WiFi piggybacking." Closing.
