I hope this is the right place to ask this question. If it isn't, please let me know where it would be appropriate, as this problem has been plaguing me for some time. At any rate, my problem is this:
I have two laptops, both running Windows 7 Home Premium, one of which I bring between home and my workplace. The first computer stays at home and is functionally a desktop. As far as I can tell, there's nothing wrong with it -- it connects nicely to both the Internet and my router (Linksys WRT160N v3) and the connection speed is what I would expect.
The other laptop is problematic. While it connects perfectly at work, when I connect at home its connection is unusably slow. I can't find any substantial differences between how the two are configured. I've tried everything from virus scans, to adding the problematic computer to my router's DMZ, disabling and resetting firewalls on both the router and the computer, to resetting the network stack on the computer.
The problem laptop gets an IP address from the router just fine, and can occasionally load webpages.
Any insight anyone has would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
