comment Mac OS X repeat software install failure
Hi, thanks for such a detailed response. It's an internal hard-drive, the download's checksum is intact, tried the dot_clean fix to no avail, tried a new user account, I'm only using default drivers. Couldn't see a DamagedFiles folder anywhere. It's a company laptop, but the wait times for fixes (it's a university, go figure) are astronomical, so I thought if I could do it myself I would, and I was hoping to use it when I'm away on a conference. I think you're right about drive failure, good thing I'm gonna have to hand this thing back in a few months anyway.

I can also confirm that the speeds come out the same on both machines using a fresh install of firefox, and the long-standing install of chrome

comment Two machines, same wireless adapters, different speeds
Interesting. I did another run on the win7 machine and it came back as a speed of 58,000,000. I think something might have been downloading on it when I ran the original test. Speedtest.net test is the same though

comment Two machines, same wireless adapters, different speeds
I've added the results in an edit. Interesting that the two devices have different names and speeds. I imagine name is to do with the drivers being different (disk didn't include win8 drivers so I had to get them from the manufacturer's site). Speed is weird though as it's higher on the slower connection. Could it be that one of them is plugged into USB 1 instead of 2 or something?

Ah sorry, had a typo there. I was following from the average of three readings from speedtest.net. I shall edit my question accordingly
