low BB on 2nd computer

Can you please tell me how I can improve my husband's connection to internet.

I have admin computer and am getting 7.5mbps but our 2nd computer is only getting 0.48mbps - then goes to 0.18mbps. It also tells me that the signal strength is very good!! Blimey!

what are the specs of the slow pc and what operating system is it?have you done any antispyware scans if not download update and run malwarebytes and then superantispywareclick here

Are you running both machines from a router (one in, multiple out)or are you running one machine from the other.

If you want to allocate the maximum speed to both computers they have to run via a router.

Try running this on it, it worked for me on my XP Laptop that runs Wireless. One at the top TCPoptimizer click here

Thanks have run malwarebytes and superantispyware.
We are using a router - Speedtouch

Have downloaded TCPoptimizer but it looks too difficult for me to contemplate. How does this work please?

Many thanks

Just try pressing the Optimizer Button with Default Settings, In the Menu there should be a place for you to restore original settings if its no better
