I built a brand new, awesome gaming computer!!!
However, I am having an issue.
The Wireless Card I am using is the Linksys WMP54Gv4.1.
I had installed Windows XP on this computer yesterday so I could do the $40 Windows 8 Upgrade, and it worked, but now the internet is ridiculously slow. It worked fine in XP. I mean, it's crazy slow.
Download Speed: 0.8KB per Second
Upload Speed: 0.52KB per Second
The manufacturer doesn't have any drivers for Windows 8 only XP and Vista. The XP drivers installed just fine though in the hardware manager, but I think it may be why it's so slow. So I have three options:
Try installing the Vista Driver and see if it does any different.
Use a USB Wireless Adapter I have (I would rather not)
Use a larger antenna.
What should I do?
