Hi there, I have 2 PCs that use a Linksys WAG54G wireless modemrouter. PC A is hardwired to the router whilst PC B connects wirelessly. My broadband connection is therefore shared. The PCs have similar spec (both win xp and within a year old) yet Internet Explorer runs substantially faster on the hardwired PC? (the wirelss PC used to run fater when it had 56K internet!!). Why is tis happening when the connection on PC 2 to the router is at 54mpbs and the signal strength is "very good"????????????????
When i have experinced a bit of slowness i just log on to the router and re-set my settings i use netgear so i dont really know your set-up. It also depends how far away you are from the router walls ect ect
When i log on to the router i.e open internet explorer and put in address which on Netgear is http//192.168.0.1 i then enter user and password when logged on i go to setup wizard it will say you have a internet connection already and i just click to start anyway.
Also you could try setting your firewall to normal if you use one on your laptop and see if that makes any difference.
Right now my speed has dropped to 24 mbps and i dont even notice a difference.
