Windows 7: Incredibly SLOW download & High Ping!!

The only option to get your netbook wireless connection running at a reasonable speed is to have a wireless router that supports 802.11n

If you can not update your present router to those standards it wont work properly.

QUOTE
Im also confused because when I scroll over my internet connection in the bottom right it says im connected to a 802.11n connection.
But when I goto the surrounding networks(neighbors) they are listed as 802.11g connections. what does this mean?
UNQUOTE

It probably means that the information is wrong! The netbook supports the 802.11n , but your router does not.

If you were actually connected to an 802.11n connection, then you would not be having any problems.

Your present router does not support 802.11n so it can not possibly be providing such a connection.

How did you try the update? Maybe we can figure something out?

The update was a firmware update for the router, it seemed like a newer updated ( because the date was more recent) but it was actually the current firmware I was using. I figure I can buy a USB wireless adapter and use that for the time being?

Side note...
The connection has gotten somewhat better with the little windows 7 tweaks I have been looking up all day. Here is an updated speedtest, The ping is still high but the download speed is good enough.


Thanks for all your help because you ultimately resolved my problem, Im just going to have to hope this connection is faster at school or I will have to buy a new wireless adapter.

Thanks again you were a lot of help.
