    Whoa! That's a pretty dramatic increase, just from a driver upgrade. Now I'm motivated to check that part out on my two current PCs, at the very least!

    First I'll see what a wired connection does, speedwise.

    Thanks!

    Well, I thought I'd check in, @KY_BULLET, to let you know that I ended up checking my drivers first (my husband's watching TV right now, and it's right next to the Ubee modem/router, so...I'll have to wait to do a wired speed test).

    Both PCs tell me that their wireless drivers are up-to-date. Now, I have never updated them consciously; perhaps they update themselves, I'm not sure. Or perhaps no driver updates have been issued for either wireless setup since I bought the PCs. I don't know.

    The desktop, which is what I'm focused on in this thread, primarily, uses a Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11 b/g/n adapter for wireless connectivity--and I found it in device manager, clicked on checking for updates, and was told everything is up-to-date, nothing new to be done.

    So there we are. :wacko:

    I'll check back when I have the wired speed test.

    Thanks!
