I am having troubles with what im assuming is the wireless card i have in my desktop. I have a 15 mbps connection that my laptop is having no troubles getting 18 mbps according to "speedtest.net". the desktop is having troubles getting 2 mbps according to the same site. I am having troubles staying logged in to anything (such as games) that requires faster dl speeds. can someone please help me to figure out what my problem is? it is a Gigabyte GN-WP01GS PCI WLAN Card(turbo) running on Windows Vista Ultimate. i have the up to date drivers. im completely stumped. any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi! :)

Have you tried an ethernet connection with your desktop? The reason I ask is that, it may not be a problem with your adapter at all, it could be a software problem (i.e virus), and if you experience the same results using an ethernet connection as wtih a wireless, then you know the adapter is fine. Has this adapter EVER ran at speeds as fast as your laptop? Have you taken any other troubleshooting steps?
