I have a router and an 8Mbit/s connection.
The router is connected to two computers via Ethernet ports.
The issue is that the first computer which runs Win 7 gets full speed, The second one which runs XP Pack 3 gets very low internet speed, like 2kb/s even though the first computer doesn't download anything at the moment.
So i tried to unplug the first computer and guess what, the second computer got the full speed.
I wonder why? Is there a setting that i'm not aware of in XP? I noticed that even the local router admin loads slowly unless as i said disconnect the other computers.
My router is Sagem3304.
P.S. I scanned both computers with updated antiviruses and nothing was found. I also tried WIFI and it didn't solve it.
