Ok, so when I have my laptop plugged in to a power source, which is most of the time since my battery sucks from being old, the LAN is horribly slow, dial-up slow, even though its a high speed connections, but when I unplug it, it speeds up dramatically. Please help!

Tried it didn't work. But anyways, I have tried looking at task manager and to see if any programs start taking up bandwidth when I plug it in, but nothing does. Also I really need to know how to fix this because I can only run on battery for like 30 minutes, so it really cuts down on my produtivies to unplug the power cord when I need to surf the web fast, then plug it back in.
