Alright, have a question about download speeds. Bear with me, i'll try to be as specific as possible.
So if i put my usb wireless g adapter into my desktop which is sitting right next to the router and go to download a large file (xp sp3 network install) i get around 3 MB/s. (Direct wired i get 3 MB/s)
Now, i put that same adapter into my laptop which is sitting next to the router, and do the same file, i only get 1.1 MB/s.
I also tried a PCMCIA wireless g card in the laptop and still only get the same 1.1 MB/s.
If i hook an ethernet wire from my laptop to the router, i get 3 MB/s.
I understand usually wireless speeds will be less than wired speeds. But, why would a desktop with a wireless adapter get faster speeds than a laptop with the same adapter.
