i have a TL-WR641G/642G 108M Wireless LAN Router. im currently putting my wireless settings to 108 mbps(danamic). i live with my roommate who is using a laptop,while im using desktop(cable connected to router). i just wanted to know why and how am i the one cabled but slower than my roommate,as in browsing,games etc. everytime hes surfing(which is a lot)i even had to wait half a minute to open google.
my speed on desktop(cable) only slows down when he is on. but when he not on its just like usual,fast. but when hes on,its like he got my(cable) speed,but im the one getting slower. he is using a macbook.not sure the specification. my desktop is kinda old, xp service pack 3 '02 vers. pentium D 3.40Ghz 1 GB RAM Geforce 7300 GT. seriously im not sure what a malware is. but does spec has to do with internet speed? machine is fine. i could turn on itunes,World of Warcraft,firefox,msn all everything on at the same time no problems. im really sorry,its just i didnt had this problem with my old roommate.thx
