Ok so this morning I set up a wired home network to share a connection between 2 computers to AOL/Time Warner Cable broadband as well as file and printer sharing.. Everything is going fine, except for the extreme slowness while web browsing or downloading. I realize that both computers have to split the bandwidth, but even with one computer off, the other one still hangs.
Im using a Network Everywhere Cable/DSL 4-Port routher. And I Upgraded the firmware, I've used Modem max, and Some other program to boost my connection But to no avail.. can someone please tell me what I need to do to get these computers up to par with optimized download speed? Before I networked the computers, my old compaq had an average d/l of about 100-150 kbp/s. Now neither ocmputer will pass 5 kbp/s.
