Hi all. My wife and I have identical pc's 2M cpu, 2g memory running XP OS. Just upgrading to wireless N has caused me to take my wife's slow speed complaint seriously. I tried all that I know, short of reinstalling the OS (which I'de prefer to avoid)I get a full 50m broadband download and 1.6M upload which is normal. All I can get on my wife's pc is 10m download but with 1.6M upload(normal). Iv'e proved that it is the pc be switching the machines over with mine receiving only 10M download. I have even used TCT Optimiser which improved the speed from 8M to the present 10M. Does anyone have any suggestions(apart from OS reinstall or binning the pc)please.
Many thanks to all for your comments in particular mgmcc.None of the suggestions helped but, I have now resolved the problem, After isolating apps one by one I discovered that the AVG virus app was the cause. Reinstalling this effected a cure. Now getting around 45M wireless at about 5 metres and on the wireless G laptop in the garden 15 metres I'm getting around 20M. Thanks again Ron
