I have tried reading other threads and i couldn't find the same problem or a solution that has worked. I have a dell studio 17 running windows 7, a linksys wrt610n version 2 running the latest firmware, and an intel centrino advanced n 6200 network card.
I ran an internet speedtest (speedtest.net) right before i posted this and it had me at 2Mbps upload and download. However, when i actually attempt to download something, i am more likely to pulling bytes per second than even Kb. For instance, it took me almost 10 minutes to download firefox. I am able to open simple internet pages without much issue (slow but not unreasonable) however streaming content (i watch baseball online MLB.com) is out of the question.
I should also point out that using my work computer running windows XP i am not having this issue.
Thanks in advance for your help.
