if the card were dead..it would never work...for any connections...but you said earlier that when you're connected to the router YOU can connect to the internet...it's just not doing well once you do right?

then the ethernet card is irrelevant on the laptop

do you still have that static ip set in the laptop? the one i told you to set up? if so...connect the laptop to the modem...turn the modem off...turn the LT off...turn the modem on..once it's up...turn the LT back on...can you connect to the internet now?

I see your signature says Mon-Fri, I'll be at work for the next couple of hours so if I don't respond for awhile, it'll be tomorrow morning depending on when you leave for the night.

I'm back if you are. Still no improvement on the speed, I tried to defrag and clean up some junk but that didn't seem to do too much, any new ideas?

ok so where we are right now is...you've got a desktop connected to the router wired that works...and a laptop connected wirelessly to the router that works (just slow connection)...but the ethernet port on it doesn't connect (pretty much irrellevant in the setup)...correct so far?


have you contacted your ISP to see if they can test your connection?

The desktop connected to the router works but slow. It doesn't work without the router. The laptop works slow wireless and doesnt work at all wired. I have not contacted my isp, I atually have no idea how to do that.
