My Connection is ADSL 8mbps. Netgear DG834G Wireless Router Latest Firmware
Laptop Dell 640M/Built In Wifi.
This past week i have started to notice my connection on my laptop very slow, at some points it was like 56k again. I ran a few speed test online mostly http://www.bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/
and my WIFI connections were varying from 100kbps and 300kbps max, i would expect more from my connection. My Desktop connects to the router via RJ45 cable and my speed s very good, around 2-5 mbps.
I decided to connect the Laptop using RJ45 cable and i was getting a faster speed of 1.2mpbs from laptop via cable. There is not adware, spyware,malware or virus on the laptop for sure, and firewalls are set correctly. Interference was my thought, as i have a cordless phone nearby, external cd drive and soundcard, but when all switched off, still get these slow speeds. I have 2 other laptops that connect to the wifi and those are only achieve 500kbps max too.
I would appreciate any information or guides to figure out this problem, I have tried everything i know.
