Recently I've been having some network trouble with the desktop in my living room. Right now I have Comcast internet service, which is the 50 Mbps plan. Now on my desktop computer, I've only been getting roughly 3-4 Mbps speed. The technicians from Comcast came and looked at it and said everything is fine from their side, which is indeed true.
This is because if I use my laptop and wirelessly connect to the network, the speed is fine, of course with the speed dropping when I move away from the router, but that is expected. If I hardwire it, the speed is fine, no matter where it is wired from in my home. So I decided to do some testing today to determine what might be the cause of this issue. I took my laptop to the living room and hardwired it with a 30 foot long Ethernet cable and my speed was around 60-70 Mbps. I did the same with my desktop, and the speed was, again only 3-4 Mbps (I made sure the wireless was off).
I do have an Asus PCE-N15 wireless card in the desktop and I've updated all of its drivers as well. I also took the wireless card out and just used the basic LAN connection I already have with the motherboard and updated those drivers (which were already up to date). The last thing I did was change up the DNS settings but none of that worked. My speed on the desktop was still 3-4 Mbps.
Can anyone please help me resolve this issue? I can't seem to figure out what the issue is, considering my laptop worked fine when doing the testing like I did with the desktop. Will I have to change up some more settings on the desktop to fix this? I would really appreciate some help on this.
