In my house, we have a laptop and a desktop i built (the latter is mine), which are basically the only devices that ever run on the network (aside from a low-traffic web server). Speedtest.net revealed the laptop to be downloading at a rate of about 5mbps (ok), and the desktop about 0.5 mbps (what??). Both computers are connected to the network wirelessly, the laptop with built in hardware and my desktop with a 150mbps Wi-fi dongle. I am not sure if this is a result of a bad dongle (my computer connects and disconnects a lot) or the network. Also, connecting the desktop via Ethernet is not a possibility.
I really started to notice this when a friend came on to my Minecraft server (hosted on my desktop) and said his connection was timing out (I port forwarded and gave him the correct public IP). But that is not my main concern, since I saw his player on my server.
Would this improve the connectivity?
One last thing, both PC's are quite similar in terms of other hardware.
Intel Core i5 4210m 2.8 GHz
8 GB RAM
Intel HD 4600 Graphics
Intel Core i5 4440 3.1 GHz (quad core)
8 GB RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked
Thanks for your time!
