    Hi, I have 3 computers in the house on wifi. Two get 20-30 Megs, one gets just 1 Meg! It is fitted with a new Netgear wifi adaptor. On a wire it gets 5 Megs. Seems like there is something wrong with the computer. Virgin did a remote access 'deep clean' antivirus and so on, but its still rubbish.

    Any ideas anyone?

    First I would make sure that you have the latest drivers for that adapter.
    Was it always slow or just with this adapter ?
    Boot up in safe mode with network.
    Any difference ?

    Cheers. Will do. I think my computer is very old, probably needs a reinstall. In fact It has just gone terrible today, with windows explorer using 99% cpu when I click on My Documents!
