Huge Download Speed Difference Between Laptops

Recommended Posts


    I bought a new laptop a couple of weeks ago and discovered that the download speeds on it are tremendously slower than our other laptop that we puchased over a year and a half ago.  On the new machine, I am getting download speeds of approximately 250 to 300 kB/s.  On my old machine, I am getting download speeds of approimately 4500 to 5000 kB/s.  Shouldn't the new computer be faster?  The old one downloads extremely fast, the new one extremely slow.  My ISP is Comcast.  Any suggestions?  Both computers are running off of the same wireless home network.  This is the results from my new computer.
