Specs: Windows 7, 8GB
I have a laptop and desktop both using the same Cisco/Linksys router.
The laptop is using a wireless connection and the desktop is connected to the router by ethernet cable.
When I run a speed test on both the laptop and the desktop the download/upload speeds are about the same. How could this be??

You lucky, quite often the wireless speed is slower. However it not unusual for them both to be the same considering that both Ethernet and Wireless are considerably faster than your Internet speed and well within the capabilities of both.

It is the speed between your router and your ISP that matters, not the speed between your router and your computer which is completely different..
