I recently upgraded my internet package from 25 mbps to 75 mbps. The problem is on my desktop, I can not get to anywhere near 75 but on all of my other devices I can. Including several iphones, an android, a lenovo thinkpad, and a 2011 macbook pro. The lenovo being the lowest connected at 60 mbps at www.http://speedtest.net/ and the macbook managing up to 81.(What even?) But my handbuilt PC is left in the dust at 30 mbps on a good day ranging all the way down to 8 mbps.
I've troubleshooted to no end: I've read that certain programs will limit connections speeds as to balance them like AMD quick stream and uninstalled anything like that, even ordered a new wireless card in case the old one was broke in some way(it doesnt appear that it was), and manually updated the drives for the old card all to no avail.
Googling doesnt seem to be helping anymore so I came to this forum.
Thanks in advance,
edit:The router is plugged in via cable and I am connecting wireless. The distance between them is maybe 15 or 20 feet and there is one wall in the way.
