Hi, ive got a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with Vista and a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop. The desktop is connected to my Netgear DG843G router with the ethernet cable and my download speed is only 1.5 meg. My laptop which is wireless is getting 6-7 meg, my line is an up to 8 meg. I dont understand why my desktop is so slow. I always scan with AVG,CCleaner,Spybot and superanti spyware. Im on XP sp3 with 2 gb of ram and my HD is 70% full.
Hi , I have the exact same problem . I've posted query on here a couple of days ago. I've also got a netgear router with slow wired desktop and fast wireless laptop ,PS3 and another desktop. I'll try what has been suggested above if I can work out what it means. Cheers Nick
Im getting 54mbps, signal strength excellent and connected. I do have a netgear pci card in it with the ariel but when i unplug it it says network cable unplugged. Ive updated the firmware on the router and its not any different. I may have to get someone in to sort it.
Im not that savvy with pc`s, i tried the memtest but it was just going on about a floppy disc and windows cannot read it, god knows, well over my head.
cheers for the replys.
