|I have two computers (a laptop and a desktop), both run the same OS (Win7 home). [tags in this post is wrong].|
When I use the same cable connected to my router and run an online speed test, I get 124/15 on the desktop and 95/12 on the laptop (speed differs of course from time to time but the desktop is always higher). (The desktop is half a year newer than the laptop).
If go to network card properties and check the config, the desktop is set to 1 gbps, whilst the laptop is set to auto-negotiate (and only has 100 mbps full duplex as its best).
Why can't I set my laptop to 1 gbps ?, and would that in that case increase its speed?
