|hi. i am on a 4Mbps internet line. i have a strange situation which i hope somebody here would be able to figure out and tell me what's going on.|
i have 3 PCs connected to the internet through a router. i noticed that direct downloads on the 2 PCs that are connected to the router wirelessly are capped at about 50-60kbps/sec per download. just to clarify, i can still achieve a full speed of 400kbps in total, but just that each download is capped at 50-60kbps.
however, on the PC that is connected directly to the router via ethernet cable i am able to download well over 150kbps per download.
so i don't think it's my ISP that is capping my downloads here, but i can't figure out why downloads would be capped on the wireless PCs. is it some settings on my router? i have everything pretty much set on default. the modem is a D-Link 2640B.
any help is appreciated. i really want to solve this issue! thanks!
eg. if i download 1 file, the transfer rate is capped at 50-60kb/s.
if i download 2 files, each file is capped at 50-60kb/s.
the total download speed is 100-120kb/s.
if i download 8 files, each file is capped at 50-60kb/s.
the total download speed is 400-480kb/s.
on the ethernet PC, there is no limit to the transfer rate for each download. eg. if i download 1 file it can reach over 150kb/s.
