Exclamation download speeds slow
i have edimax wireless router, with 2 comps connected wired to it, now i went threw the set up, and have a connection to the internet on both comps. But when i try to download anything on either comp i only get about 1-10 kps, when i used to get up to 500kps with just one comp and no router. any ideas would be great. Thanks

First thing I would do is go here...

http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

Write down the speed.

Power off one computer and make sure it is disconnected from the network and run the speed test again witting down the results.

Now switch computers and repeat.

Now virus scan both computers and upgrade the firmware on the router

The computer with slow DL speed could be infected with something maybe, or your router could be mis configured. There is many things that could be wrong.

But like I said scan em both.

Turn off the power on the modem, router, and computer.

Connect one computer directly to the modem.
Power on the modem, wait for a connect light.
Boot the machine.
Do a speed test and report the results.

this is the result of my speed test with both comps hooked up and connected throught the router. Download Speed: 506 kbps (63.3KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 468 kbps (58.5 KB/sec transfer rate).

But with comps like this my bit torrent cant get a good download speed, but if i disconnect the router and have just one or the other comp hooked up to the modem my bit torrent gets a good connection. i tried updateing the firmware but the website is messed up, when i click on the file to download it, it says page cannot be displayed.
