Hay everyone I have an AirPort extreeme located in my front room about 15 feet from my bedroom. In the bedroom I have an iMac 27" mid-2011 model. I have been running speed tests from speedtest.net and have been getting very slow download rates, any where betwee 1.4 and 5.0 mbps. I pay for a 25 mbps speed. I have full signal strength everywhere in the house the speed is just terrible. Does anyone know how I can increses the speed of that computer. I have changed the channel to one that is not used as much in my area, as I looked at iStumbler. Also if I sit in the room next to the router I get 10 - 15 mbps. Any help would be amazing. Thanks.
PS I also have an AirPort express set to extend the network in the bedroom where I am having the slow speed.

Constantly see when downloading new patches from WOW, messages that I am behind a firewall - when I do not have firewall set on the AE nor on my Mac...
