i have an unusual network problem with my desktop pc's which has put me at a loss. I have 2 desktop's and 1 laptop all running genuine windows 7 ultimate (though i also used to experience this under xp)
If i run a broadband speed test on either desktop pc it seems to buffer the data then fire it through all in one go causing claims of 168.89mbp/s or some other fantastical speed. This happens on both pc's using firefox or IE and over wifi or ethernet.
The laptop however smoothly increases the estimated speed on the test everntually reporting back something reasonable like 6.5mbp/s
