I'm running two separate rigs next to each other in one room, both on the same network, and consecutive speed testing resulted in 42d/1.58u and 4.87d/7.82u. The wireless card in the slow one is an integrated Broadcom in an Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe Mobo. I've already checked power saver settings, and tried telling it not to search for any new networks once connected (heard that could work). Still, the lowest ping is consistently 10-12ms higher than the machine right next to it with random png spikes up to 2k+ and total connection drops. Any ideas?

For speed tests to be accurately compared, they must be received from the same server.


What software are you using for the tests and are the servers identical?


Can you try a manual ping from a terminal (cmd prompt) to say google.com or bypass dns @ from both machines and tell me if there is any packet loss from the questionable machine?

antenna's connected securely? you might want to check the channels both wifi are running maybe you have some congestion with the channel on the slower one.
