    Big difference in Internet Speed.


    I have just upgraded to OPTUS 100Mbps Docsis3 cable.
    Modem is Cisco DPQ3212c,Router TP-Link WR1034ND.
    Desktop I get 95Mbps Download with a Gigabit Nic.
    Laptop I get 26Mbps Download with a 10/100 Nic. (Wired connection)
    Would I get better results with the Laptop if I Used a USB Gigabit Nic or a Gigabit Express card?

    Acording to quick research Express cards are based off PCI or USB 2.0 and there is no speed difference on either host(While Using Express cards).

    But personally I would go with the express card. I woud much rather have the device mostly be in my laptop than sticking out. (Less chance to destroy an usb port)

    I agree with that,but will it get me a faster download speed than with the 10/100 inbuit Nic?
    Just checked and it is a Type II PC card slot NOT an Express
