New network, one fast connection, one slow
I recently set up an all wireless network with two computers linking in. Here's my hardware:
ISP: Comcast cable / cable modem
Router: Buffalo WR-HP-G54 "g" w/ tomato firmware
Desktop: Edimax Ew-7728In g/b/n
Laptop: IBM T60p , not sure about network card (it's my work laptop)
So here's the thing, when I run online speed tests through speedtest.net or speakeasy, I consistently get 12-14mbps through my laptop, but I consistently get 6-7 mbps on my desktop, and I can't figure out why.
I have latest drivers on the desktop edimax.
Signal strength with the desktop is excellent, and the laptop gets the same 12-14 speeds in the same room.
I turned off virus protection on the desktop and it didn't make a difference, and really there isn't anything else to disable that I can see that would affect throughput. Maybe something else running in background I can't see?
Is there common background programs that cause slowdown?
Any ideas / suggestions would be appreciated thanks.
