|As far as the laptop and desktop; I use them both for all kinds of office apps, AutoCAD, Games, Viewing and editing pictures, watching movies... well just about everything and neither have any lag on any of these tasks so I would assume the hard drives, cpu and so on are in good working order. Yes the file was over my local network. Also attempts were made to do the same network activity while in the room 5 feet from the router with no improvement. Also the manual switch on the laptop for the card is in the on position (tried both ways just in case).|
Everything works fine on other wireless devices so probably not the router though I do have another I can try just in case.
I use Verizon Broadband card for internet cause i am not in access area for Cable/DSL. Naturally the closest cell tower is well away also. I have to use an antenna ran from outside and still only getting a max of -85dBm but usually around -90dBm. My bandwidth does suck, but i still get a decent 25 - 100 KB/s considering. Miracuosly got up to 250 one day. Thanks in advance.
