Hi All,

I have a computer that is directly wired (via modem and router) to the Internet and 4 laptops that connect wirelessly.

I have cable internet that provides me with a speed of at least 3Mbps. When I run a speed test on my laptop, I get more than 3Mbps, but from the computer wired directly, I'm getting anywhere from 9kbps - 1.2Mbps, even when no one else is on any of the laptops. Why is this? :thumbsup:

I've checked task manager for CPU usage just to see if there might be any processes that might be hogging the resources but my cpu usage fluctuates only between 2 - 13%.

Additionally, I have checked any P2P software I might have installed, and it's free of any p2p software.

What I have not done yet is go into msconfig to check any startup programs that might be running in the background, since I'm not sure which programs are safe to disable. :trumpet:

This really concerns me because I work for people requiring me to have download speeds of at least 2Mbps and I need to be wired directly. :flowers:

What I can do to improve my download speed? Any suggestions would be of great help!
