    Unhappy Broadband/Networking


    Hi Guys,
    We have just bought a Belkin Wireless cable/dsl Gatway router,
    which we have initially connected two PC's by cable. No problem fitting the router and it works.

    However we have noticed one problem, that one pc is downloading much quicker than the other.

    one is downloading about 10kb/s the other at about 100kb/s

    We are using the 1MB telewest service.

    Any ideas.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards Mike

    hey...

    check the NIC (network card) of the slower downloading computer as it may be a slower card (or if you mean downloading from the net, it shouldnt affect it much though).

    what are the O/Ses?

    Thanks for the reply, both computers have the same network cards.

    I'm a bit of a novice when it come to computers, what does O/Ses mean?
