Wired connection slower than wireless Tags: LAN Wireless Connection Internet Connection Networking Last response: June 19, 2012 10:06 PM in Networking Share InfinityBlaze June 19, 2012 9:28:24 PM Hi all, I apologize in advance if I'm just plain dumb. I recently purchased a 20ft Ethernet cable to speed up my internet connection. On wireless, I would download files at about 2 MB/s. On wired I get 1.5 MB/s. Is it supposed to be like this ?

See if you can set the card higher to 100Mbps or buy faster card. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
