Thanks for any help you can provide, this is a strange error. Just bought an Acer Aspire S5-391. Set everything up, did all of the multiple rounds of windows updates. Now I'm having issues with my wireless connection. I get about 1/15 or 1/10 of the available connection that other laptops in the house can obtain, even when no other laptop is connected.
I've used an online speed test and have trouble getting more than 1-3 mbps, whereas my partners' laptop gets 15-16 mbps.
Here is my speetest.net result for this new laptop: http://www.speedtest.../2181771322.png
And for comparison, here it is for my other laptop: http://www.speedtest.../2181773642.png
What's odd is that the upload speed is very similar for both, but the download speed is nowhere near where it could be.
Could I have a faulty wireless card? I don't have an ethernet port so I can't check it that way. I also haven't compared with another wireless connection.
I have a D-Link wireless router, and am happy to provide any info or details on it if you have specific questions. I don't know my way around the settings very well but am good with basic instructions! We set it up as a WPA-personal. Maybe something in our settings limits what connection can go out?
I also went into the computer and saw the two wireless adapters:
qualcomm atheros AR5Bmd222 - was able to update it, saw no change.
Microsoft Virtual Wifi miniport adapter - nothing to update it
I have disconnected, rebooted the router and the modem, turned off my wifi, reset the computer, etc etc. My partners' laptop has no issues - so both of ours have worked, even at the same time, but this 3rd computer isn't properly working.
I'm using Windows 7 64bit
Thanks in advance!!
