Using click here speedtester, I get much higher speeds (up to 9Mbps) on the desktop, but typically only 2Mbps on the laptop over a Sky wireless router. Is this normal?
Presumably the laptop cpu is slower than the PC?
I advised someone to tweak there MTU and RWIN settings recently to resolve this problem and this seemed to be the solution. click hereAlso make sure you have the latest drivers for the wireless card.
The laptop gets the higher speeds when connected directly to a modem. It must be the wireless router connection slowing it down.
Graham,as it is a wireless connection, it could be the card used in the laptop, that is slower.
What speed card is it? 802.11b or g i.e. 11 Mbps or 54 Mbps?I mentioned tweaking as the MTU/RWIN values set for the ethernet card connection when using wired may not be the best values for the wireless card. You can tweak each card for optimum performance.
802.11g, 54 Mbps as in Device Manager.
I've just updated the drivers for the Wireless Network Adapter. Now getting 3Mbps. I can live with that.
So it isn't the card's speed that's limiting the connection.Another poster on a different forum found tweaking was the solution. There are some other suggestions you could try. (Easier linking than copying the text.) click here=
