Hello everyone.

There are two PC's in my house, and two smartphones that have wifi.

My problem that I am posting about is that my PC which is wired to the router is getting very slow speeds compared to my wifes PC that is using a wireless card. And both of our phones get much higher speeds compared to speedtest.net apps.

Me and my wife are both downloading LOTRO online clients. I started my DL hours before hers...

I am getting about 700 KBps average DL speed.

My wife's PC is getting about 2200 KBps average download speed.

For whatever its worth, my Nexus One gets 8000 KBps, and her Behold II gets 7000 according to speed test app.

I am writing to ask how I can diagnose and figure out how my wired PC gets 1/3 the download speed of her wireless PC.

Any ideas?

My Nexus1:


Her Behold 2:


I don't understand why my PC is so slow to DL...

Clutter can slow things down considerably. Go to http://www.atribune.org and download ATF Cleaner then to http://www.piriform.com for CCleaner. They will each clear unnecessary files that the other doesn't see. Also, go to http://www.malwarebytes.com and get MalwareBytes, install and update it then restart into Safe Mode and run the full scan.

Other important factors are RAM and hard disk free space. What are your figures on those?

Sorry for the late reply to your questions...

I have 4GB DDR3 RAM, and over 400GB free space on my disk.

I hate anti-virus software, (considering the thing makes your computer run worse than if it actually had a virus ^_^). Are either of these programs things that run in the background? Are they free? Are they safe and endorsed by other board members?

Thanks for your reply, and hopefully you'll see this post.
