Had FTTC installed this morning, so after the engineer went I tried a few speed tests on my laptop, these peeked at 42mbit using the speedtest.net test on the Maidenhead server. Very happy considering im on a 40/2 connection! Anyway, went up to my PC used the same server on the same speedtest site and I had 32mbit... strange. Plugged my laptop into the same cat5 my PC uses and its showing 42mbit again!! Updated my NIC drivers to the latest version from Intel and its now hitting 37mbit, although it seems to instantly go there and not move at all, almost though its being limited. Now don't get me wrong im more than happy with 37mbit but I find it very strange that my laptop is reporting 5mbit faster using exactly the same cable, the same speedtest site and the same speedtest server... Not sure what to try next, I have nothing on my PC to limit downstream speeds!
