Hi.. Okay, I have this problem with very slow internet speed when my computer says its excellent.

I have a Linksys WUSB300N Wireless-N USB Network Adapter and like, the connection says its Very Good and 82% signal strength. Then when I load up IE or Firefox, its slow as heck! Like it barely loads.

So I refromated (cus I had other problems as well, virus, spyware, haven't used the comp for over a year)

I refromated, upgrade to SP2 and everything, and it still persists! I don't know whats going on but I've eliminated all problems, theres nothing on the computer, its fresh off, just formated windows. The adapter is fine cause I tested it on my laptop, same room, very good speed...

The internet is fine, all computers are working well.

I'm just so confused!! All drivers are installed, can someone suggest anything please?

I'm gonna call Linksys soon but its not their problem cause the adapter works fine, maybe its my computer settings, I don't know?

I would change the router settings. Routers can be setup to only allow so much internet usage to be drawn through wirelessly.......

Use PortForward.com to figure out how to log into your current router and then check ur wireless settings! :whistling:
