I have a Netgear wireless G router connected at home with Wide Open West internet provider with 5meg download speed. Tested this with speakeasy.net. My wife has a Toshiba-Satellite Laptop with Intel® Celeron® Processor-Silver-L455-S5975 with windows 7. When we both try to connect to wireless the internet gets really slow and we get page cannot be displayed a lot and have to keep clicking try again on like every other page. Anybody have any idea what would cause two wireless laptops to slow down the internet. One more thing, wireless router is in second floor bedroom opposite side of the house and we are on the first floor family room. maybe a distance of 50 feet. Also either of the laptops work fine and internet speed is fine if only one of them is booted up..

Run ipconfig /all on both machines & post the output.

The distance that you described should be a problem at all.

It looks good. You can try using the DNS IPs from the ISP. That's the only thing I can see that might help.

this doesn't look good for dns suffix search to me

bristolwest.com
farmersinsurance.com

If the same router is being connected to this should be the same as the first laptop.

Might want to go into the dns tab of tcp/ip properties and remove these manually added entries.

"When the suffix search list is not empty and has at least one DNS suffix specified, attempts to qualify and resolve short DNS names is limited to searching only those FQDNs made possible by the specified suffix list. If queries for all FQDNs formed as a result of appending and trying each suffix in the list are not resolved, the query process fails, producing a "name not found" result. "

from here
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...

Though this doesn't explain both laptops doing it. Suggestion to put the isps dns servers in the routers dhcp is a great one.
