I have two computers, both Windows 7 OS.
One is an older desktop and the other is my work laptop.
Both are in my home office, and connected (CAT5e) to the same router.
My cable company lists my rated (wired) download speed at 50Mbs.
My laptop on the speedtest.comcast.net website, when connected by CAT5e shows a
download speed of between 60-90 Mbs (and often 100 plus).
While my desktop computer under the same conditions is only showing a download speed of 25-40 Mbs.
Would the difference be the network card/motherboard in the older desktop computer,
slowing its download speed?
P.S> I did switch out the CAT5e cable to my older desktop computer to eliminate a possibly damaged CAT5e cable as the source of the problem.
Same result: speedtest.comcast.net website shows a download speed of between 25-40 Mbs.
