    I bought a new computer last week, and i am connecting wirelessly to my router for internet, just like my other 3 roommates. My download speeds are in the 11-20 KB/S range while theres are in the 400-500 range! even my old low RAM computer is getting dl speeds in that range. I don't know why it is doing this, one of my roommates said he still downloads stuff on his win XP computer bc his new Win 7 comp is just as slow as mine!


    Now, a series of stupid questions:
    Is this a common problem with new computers in general?
    Is there an easy way to fix it, such as utilizing more priority to download speeds?

    I am pretty new to computers in general, so any dumbed-down info would be much appreciated.

    No; but I am trying to help with a similar problem in another thread.

    Depends on what the problem is. Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. For an integrated adapter it should be from the PC manufacturer's web site.

    What security applications are on the machine?

    (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.
