Here's my situation:
My mom is complaning of slow download speeds so I bring over my laptop to have something to compare it to. She has 3 meg DSL.
Her desktop is a dual core athlon (X2 5000 I think) with 2 gigs ddr2 800, gigabyte mobo w/ integrated ethernet, 250 gig hd, and an Nvidia graphics card. She's running Vista SP1 64.
My laptop is an HP Pavillion dv6000 with an intel core2duo, 3 gigs ram, and Ubuntu 64.
I go to speedtest.net to check each PC and the download speed from the nearest server is a lot faster on my laptop. She's getting around 900kbsp and I'm getting around 1700kbps. Upload speeds are pretty much the same.
Her main complaint is the studdering of Youtube videos.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks and have a good one,
