Ok, I have McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 7.1.0 and when I measure my Broadband speed with Testmy.net I usually get around

2500 Kbps and when I turn off my Antiviruse program I usually get around 3500 Kbps??  My ISP provider is Comcast and they say I get 4000 Kbps down and 384 Kbps up?  Anyway, I dont know why I am getting such a wide difference in broadband rates wtih my antivirus on and then off and can some one please help so that I can keep my virus-scan on and still get a good broadband rate.  Oh, I have a 800 MHz processor and 384 megs of ram.  I defrag weekly, get rid of all spyware programs weekly.  I just dont know what the problem is please help.  Oh, yes I am connect to a wireless home network where my cable modem is connected to the router (linksys WRT54GS).  Also,  I have another computer located in another room who's broadband rate isn't effected by turning the antivirous program on and off?    Yes, it is the same antivirus program.

Thanks all.

wired is the best way to go. i got AVG for virus scan. linksys (wrt54gs and befcmu10) here are my results :
