      Windows on Mac

      Anyone here have an intel mac? Specifically are you running windows on Mac?

      Reason I ask is that I was wondering if the TCP optimizer thing can be utilised to up the router's stats?

      17" Intel iMac Mutts Nuts - OS 10.4.8
      (also running Windows via Boot Camp)

      ...in exactly the same way as it is done on an Intel / AMD machine running Windows XP...

      TCP Optimizer doesn't change anything on the router, just how Windows talks to it - the settings would only work while you were running Windows.

      Yup. An iMac 24" to be exact.

      Specifically are you running windows on Mac?
      Under a beta of VMware Fusion, yes. I did have Boot Camp installed but found it a little annoying having to reboot to do something in Windows that wasn't related to gaming.

      See Jez's response.

      There is a TCP Optimizer for Macs anyway?
