Hi everyone. I recently bought a Netgear powerline adapter to get internet to my desktop and I thought it would be a much better connection than a wireless one. However, the speed I'm getting from it is only around 300 kilobytes/second which is horrendously slow... Back on my laptop which is a few years old and had a built in wireless card, the speed I got from the same router but with a wireless connection was around 2 megabytes/sec which still isn't great but its much better than what the powerline adapter is giving me. All the reviews I've read on the adapter are fantastic so I am concerned why this is happening to me. Any suggestions?

fyi the adapter is the Netgear XAVB2101
