Is that MB/s or Mb/s? There's an 8x difference.

Did you test with Speedtest.net or similar on the tablet/phone, or is that the link rate?

Where are you getting these figures from? From an internet speed checking website or from your wireless strength?

The problem is most likely with your PC then. You can try another Ethernet cable just to check to be sure.

This could be numerous reasons. DO you have an anti virus? Also could you post as much of your PC spec as possible.

Thanks

thats a very decent spec computer. There shouldnt be any bottle neck.
First try here http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
D/L the LAN driver and install it. Restart your computer and perform another speed test.

If this doesnt work, because I dont rate Bullguard. Could you D/L a trial of Kaspersky Internet security. Update it and run a full system scan just to rule out any nastys. (You will most likely have to disable or uninstall bullguard before you can install Kaspersky.

trial link is underneath the picture (very hidden lol)

No problem. I would recommend the scan and also changing the Ethernet cable. You should be getting the same speeds as your tablet if not better.

Yup, ethernet should be equal/faster than the tablet/phone (if the tablet+phone are going over the same internet connection. If it's 4G, no chance).

Any CAT5e standard Ethernet cable will do. You can find them cheap as chips on Amazon etc. Just pick the right length for you. Don't get drawn in to any gimmicks such as gold plated connectors etc.

E.g. this one should be fine.

Ok thank you for you help I managed to get the the speed to 33Mbps after a full system scan/clean up so hopefully the new Ethernet cable should push it up

Ethernet usually won't do anything to it.

If cleaning up your system improved it that much, I'm thinking you need to give Windows a full reinstall.

It depends. Some old Ethernet cables can be of low quality and seriously impact speeds. The scan with kaspersky would of identified anything impeding the connection from PC side. The driver would of made sure the software is working properly. The tablet is getting speeds okay so there's nothing wrong with the router onwards. Therefore that only leaves the Ethernet cable to the router left. People PC's can get clogged up with useless programs but not as much as to seriously impact internet bandwidth that much on a computer that modern.

Usually, Ethernet either works, or doesn't. If it doesn't, you'll get tons of packet loss or it'll downgrade to a slower speed. He's not locked to 10Mb/s, so I doubt it's the cable.

DSL has lots of stuff to optimise, but ethernet doesn't.

Using power line networking?
