You're not using ethernet if you are using WiFi. Besides unless its ancient I doubt the CPU is bottlenecking the download. If its a mainstream PC like a Dell, COmpaq etc it will have a model number somewhere on it. Its its a custom built try this...http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html Then look up the specs of the motherboard. You can upgrade anything. Not always worth it.
ok it looks like the latest drivers are installed checked with netgear and tried the below
1. Log in to the router configuration page.
2. Open Internet Explorer or any other browser and access the site:http://192.168.1.1 (or) www.routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm
By default, the username is admin, the password is password.
3. Go to WAN Setup.
4. Reduce the MTU to 1300 and apply the changes.
5. You can also try other MTU values like 1492, 1440, 1400 etc and apply the settings. Now check for the connections.
1. Right Click on My Computer icon select Properties
2. Click Hardware -select Device Manager
3. Click Network adapters - Select the Ethernet Adapter. Right Click on it and click Properties
4. You will be able to get the Popup of the Adapters
5. Properties Window -Click on Advanced
6. Select the transmit rate to 100Mb Half Duplex and Save the settings
I changed the MTU and it went up to a speed of 6151 but I should be getting close to 15000 I tried the others suggested and 1492 gave me this speed. When I go into devices and advanced I just have the 2 options HWprobe which is set at 000 and I changed this to 100mb and the line dropped. Other option is Network address and this is defaulted to 'not present' do I need to change these and if so to what?
So at least the speed went up but still not to what I should be getting any other ideas?
