badger69 Posted January 29, 2008 Report Share Posted January 29, 2008 I just moved this post from Troubleshooting now that I have it working on my laptop. Here is the issue:My Home desktop and my laptop run through the Linksys wireless network router to the high speed router. I tested using the same Fort Forward # in each machine (one at time). Did the speed tests and get an average 320 kb/s upload. Did a port forward test and it works for both systems (54071). Download speeds on laptop average around 60 kb/s (peak at 100), up is 35 kb/s which I'm happy with. What makes my old laptop work so much better than the new home PC? Can I make the home PC match?Here are my speed test results using the same settings for each computer. Router is Linksys WRT54GS v.2Old Laptop using XP & Broadcom 802.11 Network Adapter- Speed tests847 3031542 2832630 3002584 312New Desktop using Vista & Compact Wireless G USB Adapter- Same Settings306 324424 310633 307591 318Desktop download speeds are definitley slower. Not sure what can be plugging it up. I tried to download approximatley the same file to each system one at a time. Average file was (46) 845 seeds and (17) 383 Peers. Laptop download speeds averaged above 60 kb/s and peaked at over 100. Uploads averaged around 35 kb/s. Desktop download speeds averaged below 10kb/s and peaked around 25. Uploads were fairly constant around 35 kb/s.Gave each system about 25-30 minutes to reach capacity.I have not setup a manual Port Forward in the router because both systems port forward at 54071.Any help would be appreciated. If you need more info...hopefully I can answer. Not an expert here. Still learning. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
