When my wife got a wireless, we had to get a router. Having had various modems in the last 10 years, and all causing problems at one time or another, I decided on a Netgear DGN 1000, since it was one of the few that had a built-in modem. My thinking was that just maybe it would work correctly being built as one unit.
After numerous problems,it works ok. The new wireless is a Sony Vaio, about midway in the model list.She watches a lot of old tv reruns. When she uses the laptop, my online stuff slows to a crawl. Her programs run fine, with very few jerks, or pauses, as the download plays.
Is there a way to give each 50% when both being used ?
My computer:
IE 8
Directx 10.0
Free Physical 1716 MB
Free page 3927 MB
Free virtual 5765 MB
AMD Athlon II x2 260 processor
Max clock speed 3200 Mhhz
Motherboard Foxconn model A74ML 3.0/A74ML-K3.0
Mem total 3071 MB Data width 64 bits
Cache mem #0 2047KB; Cache mem #1 2048 KB
Usage 43%
Phys. Mem. 2 banks
Speed 607 Mhz
Hard disc WDC 320 GB heads 18
I took these figures from various programs that gather such info. and don't know what most of it means.
Help much appreciated.
Thank you.
