Hi, looking for a quick answer regarding download speeds.
I have 2 laptops connected wireless - one downloads @ 12 down the other @ 3
Does anyone know what may be causing the other to be so slow.
Regards michael

Are the laptops of Identical specs and OS in ALL respects ... If not, then very briefly that is your answer.

Are those speeds you are quoting the figures from the network icon (2 little screens) in your system tray?

If so, they are the speeds of the respective network connections from each of the laptops to your router - they are NOT the speed of the connection from the router to the Internet.

Wireless connection speeds can be affected by a variety of factors (for example, in your case, are the two laptops in the same location in the property?).

Also the wifi equipment, antennas and drivers installed in the laptops may affect the speeds.
