Hey all,

I subscribe to Comcast internet service, at 10 mb/s. When connected wirelessly on my HP laptop, my internet is painfully slow, around 490 kb/s. However on my other laptop (a Sony VAIO) the internet speeds (wireless as well) are fine. Also, when I connect the HP by ethernet, the internet motors along at full speed. My specs are below, thanks in advance!

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If it is an integrated adapter get the driver from HP's web site. For an external card get the driver from the card manufacturer's web site.
