      Speed problems on one of my computers

      On my main computer which is wired I can't hit more that 9mb in speed test. On my other PC and laptop which are wireless can easy hit 13mb on speed tests. The problem only started a few weeks ago.

      Upload speed is the same on all 3 pc's if that makes a difference.

      I have tried everything on main pc but still can't get over 9mb. All the settings etc are correct and the router is syncing at 15323 and the errors are low.

      Things I have tried is tcpoptimzer and a reload of Windows XP but still it hasn't made a difference.

      Thanks.

      ^^Eh ?? , what I think you mean is that if the wireless pc's are using bandwidth when you do a speedtest it will effect the wired pc's result. A wired connection will allways be superior to wireless imho.
