Slow Internet Speed

Hello all,
I have a little problem, I have a dell optiplex 755 pc, and when i come to downloading freeware programs, of operating system (ubuntu) in my download client, which ive started to use Vuze, i get around 25kbs which is really slow, i used to get around 600kbs, although on my laptop when i do this, i get around 600kb's, is there something that my computer is missing?

I don't understand this.
Thanks, Matt.

Were you downloading the file using Wireless or Ethernet? or were you using Dial-UP?

Many Thanks,
Josh

Please go to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and post back with your results from there.

What download link are you using to download Ubuntu?

Are you torrenting at all?

Who is your ISP?

Are you on ADSl or cable or...?

I am using Wireless, via a wireless adapter.

Download, 1.04mb/s
Upload 0.61mb/s
Ping 105ms

My isp is with the Utility warehouse, which also do gas and electricity

I know Vuze, is a torrent application, but you can also use it to download things from other sites, i don't use it for nothing illegal, just free ware software.

The thing is, it only does it with my pc, my laptop is fine :S

Thanks, Matt

What does Speed Test.net say about the other computer's connection (the one you haven't already tried it on).

Did you torrent Ubuntu or use a direct download link?

From which location do you download Ubuntu from?

There are lots of direct download links, some of which may be very slow or fast etc.

Could you give me some more detail on your network.

Your desktop is connected via a USB WiFi dongle to your Wireless router correct?

Question 1) What is the make and model of your router?

Question 2 How is the laptop connected?

'Your desktop is connected via a USB WiFi dongle to your Wireless router correct?'

Yep that is correct

The make of the router is NETGEAR DG834G V4

The laptop is connected via its wireless.

How far away are the laptop and desktop from the router? Are there any large pieces of metal or large obstructions between the router and the desktop?

How old and what make is the USB dongle used to connect to the internet?

How old is the computer and does it have USB 2.0 or 1.1 ports? (I'm pretty sure it has 2.0 if it can run 7 but I just want to make sure)
