Im at a friends house and he has a WGr614 netgear 54 mbps wireless router. He has cable internet, his desktop computer is hooked into the router and gets about 30 kbps download speed for songs. Whenever I connect, through ethernet cable or wireless connection i can only seem to get about 2 kbps download speed total. Any suggestions? It seems as if his desktop is stealing all the bandwidth, is there any way to fix this? Thanks.
All of those speeds are low for cable service. I only see those slow speed when P2P, BT software is hogging all the bandwidth or infested with Adware, Spyware or virus. Wireless speeds for 54g should max out around 35mbps. Ftp transfers for a single connection around 4MB/s, but I have seen as low as 1.5.
Make sure your connection for your nic's are full duplex and not 1/2.
I have seen Norton AV / suite kill a pc. Particurely if it expired before it was uninstalled or renewed. I DO NOT recommend Symantic Products due to the resources required to run them. If you have a Quad core where you can assign it to 1 cpu it's usable.
