I now have Bell Aliant Gigbit Internet
However, my 2010 13" Macbook pro can barely get to 200 mb/s through my 5Ghz Wifi and hard wired through ethernet directly to the fiberop router, I can get up to 470 mb/s.

When I click on Network Utility, I have a link speed of 300 mb/s.

Just before I go busting through settings and trying stuff, is it just my MBP showing its age and that the wireless card can only reach a maximum of 300 mb/s (At best) and the Hardwired ethernet can only reach 470 mb/s even though it is a 1000 card.

Thanks.

With just a quick google search, it seems that that MBPro has a maximum wireless speed of 300 megabits per second on N.

You might be able to mod and tweak your E'net to get some more speed, maybe… but that may only be for 2011 and later models…
