    Ok, I'm in a pickle here.
    In the household we have 3 computers. 1 computer upstairs is the main computer with the router. My computer and the girlfriends is downstairs on wireless. We are currently paying for a 7.5 Mbps download speed. The computer upstairs and my girlfriends computer which is 10 feet away, get speeds between 7.5 Mbps and 10 during boost. My computer during a speed test will spike to 7.5 Mbps and remain anywhere from 2 Mbps to 3.5, roughly have of what they have. I have tested both wireless devices on my computer and my girlfriends, no improvement. She is running a device plugged via usb, I'm running a wireless card. Tried her usb, no success. Went into Task Manager and processes looking for other programs that would eat bandwidth, no success. And played around for a little bit with the channel settings on my card. It is Asus 802.11n Wireless Lan Card. It a quick fix by disabling a function I don't know about. I'm pretty computer savvy and can not for the life of me figure this out.

    Running Windows 7, Kaspersky, Shaw is my ISP.

    Any chance you have multiple anti-viruses running?

    Uninstall Kaspersky (it may be corrupted) and see if that makes a difference.

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Just a thought, I recently learned that having my Iphone connected to the router dumbs down the speed for every computer because the router slows to the speed of the lowest common connection.

    I'd shut down all wireless devices and reset your system and bring up one computer at a time. Benchmark and then do each one again as you add more devices and I think you will see where your speed is atinuated.

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector for both your PC and the other one 10 ft. away. Identify which is which.

    I'm thinking possibly wireless interference or weak signal. Even ten feet difference can make a big difference to the Wi-Fi environment.
