How can an internet speed test be different on two different pc's in the same position on wireless?
Internet Speed Different

When conducting a test and before a test
Don't use the internet for anything else: While you probably already thought of this one, it's maybe the most important rule to remember when testing your internet speed: don't use the internet while you're testing it. Obviously, this means that you shouldn't have a dozen other windows open on your computer, but be sure to check on other things that you might take for granted that use the internet a lot.
Restart the modem / router before testing by un plugging them and re plugging them in.
Restart the computer too.
Clear the browser cache.
Then run the test
While this is great for a general idea of how fast (or slow) your internet connection is, it doesn't necessarily mean that this is the bandwidth you should always expect between you and anywhere else.

Also, don't forget the items that are running in the background that you don't even see. What's running could be different on both computers.
Megabits per second (mbps) are generally used to describe the speed of an Internet connection, whereas megabytes (MB) usually refer to the size of a file or storage space.
