My internet connection is too slow. :( 

We have a router, let's name the first computer as Computer #1 and the second one is Computer #2. Computer #1 has a good internet speed with 511 million bytes received and 75 million bytes sent. But in Computer #2 it has a too slow connection with hundreds of bytes received and sent.

What should I do? Please help. Thank you very much in advanced! :)

Total bytes send and received don't mean a lot. You need the amount of data sent over time. Mostly this is in bits/sec.
You need to run tests on the speedtest sites and see how they compare.

If both machines are in the same location using the same internet then any difference would be with the machine and not your internet. These tend to be tricky to find because it could be anything from misconfigured driver settings to different software application running on the machines.

I've already run tests in www.speedtest.net

The internet speed in Computer #1 is faster than Computer #2.

Is this something like an IP address issue? Like the IP address of the two computers are the same?
