Solved Great hardwired internet speed but wired laptop is slow

December 31, 2014 at 07:40:47
Specs: Windows 7
Wanderer or others could you expand on a few items (please forgive my stupid questions)? 1) how do I know if I have the latest drivers loaded? 2) I have a Linksys W2000 802.11n. My ISP broadband speed test yields 65K + hardwired but only ~20K wireless. Using Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection Status the wired desktop says speed is 1Gbps but wireless laptop says 56K. Is this the best I can expect?

Thank you for your response. After researching the issue I decided to buy a ASUS AC2400 router plus two USB-AC51 AC600 adapters. This should solve my issues.
