Slow internet on one pc
Hello all, I've had this problem for a few days now: my internet is really slow on my normal desktop, but is fine from my brothers and my laptop. Any ideas? My pc has priority over the other ones, so its not like the others are stealing the bandwidth. I've never had a problem with them stealing bandwidth before, even when my brother was downloading at 1mb/s..

I've had the same problem since last week, are you on Shaw? Seems like it happened right after their free speed increase. One computer is getting 7.5Mbs, the other is getting 2.5Mbs.:blarg:

I would try a different cable first of all.

also make sure that your brother isn't downloading huge files. one other thing is have you patched the number of connections ( vista) from 10 to more connections? here is a link to a website that shows you how to patch the connection from ten to ( I think) 255 Download Vista tcpip.sys and UAC Auto Patcher to Increase TCP Connection Limit My Digital Life

Yes i'm on shaw. I wonder If that's it. I'm going to switch the Cables like you suggested bend_over, and am going to put it into another port on my router to see if that works. I'll check the other suggestion when I get home shadow. I'm in class posting on my phone right now, so I can't check.

The strange thing is i've changed nothing in over a year and no one else uses the other computer. I just find it to be a strange coincidence that this happens right after the "free" speed increase.:blarg:
