LAtop internet speed way faster than desktop


[link to this post]
 
Hi

Hopefully someone can help. I am 2 floors above the router in an office. But even when I have my pc side by side with my laptop the laptop gets speeds an internet speed 4 or 5 times faster than the desktop.

I have been using Dlan duo on the pc but brought a wireless n card, and for some reason the speeds are exactly the same, roughly 2mb. Whereas the laptop wireless often gets speeds of 8-10mb in exactly the same spot. I am using BE internet.

Was wondering if maybe there is a setting on the pc slowing it down, as I cannot for the life of me understand this discrepancy. One final note if i have the laptop downloading next to my pc it makes no difference to my pc's internet speed.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thankyou

Are they both wireless? If so, try wired.
