I have a bit of a wireless problem, I have 2x laptops both connected to the Netgear V1 router, the mrs's laptop (Dell) is running in 802.11b mode and my Acer laptop is running in G mode. Everything has been working fine for the last 12 months, both of us could max out the connection when downloading but in the last couple of days my download speed on the Acer laptop is running very slow. Using DU meter to find out the download speeds on both laptops downloading the same file show that the Dell will max out the connection speed (approx 660kB/s) but when I try with the Acer I only get around 185kB/s. I have tried downloading various files from various servers on the Acer but I can not seem to get more than 185-190kB/s download speed. It seems like my Acer has capped itself . If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
