Windows 7: Slow Wireless On A Single Desktop

Slow Wireless On A Single Desktop

Hi, hopefully someone can help. I have a Windows 7 PC that I have just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 on, it has a Wireless Network G+ MIMO belkin card in there and I'm trying to play a video of another PC in the house and it takes a while to actually load the video then It'll keep freezing because it has to load it. We have another wireless desktop in the house and a wireless laptop and they can load videos fine. Could it be because it has a wireless G card in it and its transfer rate is too slow to load the video?

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

Well the biggest problem is the G wireless; That G "coded" signal is so slow compared to the "n" signal they have now. You probably will strongly want to consider upgrading to a n card. But one thing you can try in the mean time; is to reboot the modem and or router as that may help reset the signal and improve speeds a little.
