hey wondering if someone could shed some light on why i can get 4mb on speedtest.net on my lappy when using the wireless connection to the router but lucky if i can get 1mb when i use the wired ethernet port??

ive got another computer hooked up to the same router via a wired connection and that can also get around 4mb,its just the wired connection on the laptop that suffers.

i have a hp dv900 (or sumthin alike) 1.73ghz core duo with 1g ram, geforce go 7600.

before you ask i have tried a different cable,a brand new one infact and that doesnt seem to be the problem...

Have you tried swapping cables? Scanning your laptop for spyware? Checking that it's not running any other program at the same time?

Could be the way your network card's set up or the drivers?

Try getting new drivers for your ethernet adapter.

Is your network card running at 10 base or 100 base?

100, as i said, network speeds are fine just something bottle necking the internet only on wired connection... starting to think it can only be my router but the other wired devices speedtest fine - pc, ps3 both get ~4mb jsut the lappy that doesnt...

i just remembered something that kinda points the fault at me, my old laptop (didnt hav wireless) had fine network speeds but also was limited to a less than ideal speed on the net.... - different router, adsl instead of cable,different cables,different house even

still stumped
