Hi. I have a PC and a Centrino laptop. Also have the Netgear DG834G wireless ADSL router attached to the PC through a Cat5 cable. My ISP is Bulldog 2MB.
I have seen that browsing the net is much much faster on the centrino laptop that it is on the desktop PC. Any insights to why this is the case? Downloads / Browsing on the same sites on the laptop take aprox 30% quicker than on the PC
Both the PC and the laptop are running similar applications like Norton Antivirus 2004 and Internet Security. Both have common office applications like Word and Excel. Only difference is the OS. The Desktop is running XP pro, while the Centrino Laptop is running XP home. I doubt that this could have a big effect on browsing/downloads speeds
