cable modem + router question


Recommended Posts

I tested my speed with my computer connected directly through the modem and was running at 7.4Mbps. When I run my desktop through my router i test at the following.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 6440 Kbps about 6.4 Mbps (tested with 5983 KB)

Download Speed is:: 786 KB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Test Time:: Sun Feb 27 21:38:35 EST 2005

Bottom Line:: 115X faster than 56K 1MB download in 1.3 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 100.81 % faster than the average for host (rr.com)

I guess running through the router cuts some bandwidth. Is there anything that can compensate for this loss?

My Laptop runs around the 5.2Mbps range....it uses a wireless card that's recieving at 100%. It seems like it should be closer to my desktop speed, but maybe it's losing even more. Any suggestions?
