-I have a laptop that:
-doesn't have an ethernet port
-has wireless N support
-I purchased the following usb/ethernet adapter for my laptop from ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250781080553
Here are my results:
-My ISP's advertised DL speed = 30 Mbps
-My desktop's WIRED DL speed = 31 Mbps
-My laptop's WIRELESS-N DL speed = 28 Mbps
-My laptop's WIRED DL speed (I disconnected wifi on my laptop and used the usb/ethernet adapter from ebay) = 7 Mbps
What gives? The ebay item says it supports "10/100Mbps", but I am only getting 7 Mbps. Do I need another type of adapter (such as a 1000 Mbps adapter or a USB 3.0 adapter)? Please clarify.
1. My desktop's WIRED DL speed = 31 Mbps
2. My laptop's WIRELESS-N DL speed = 28 Mbps
3. My laptop's WIRED DL speed (I disconnected wifi on my laptop and used the usb/ethernet adapter from ebay) = 7 Mbps
These are test speed ?
And more details will be needed like, Specify Laptop model, you Isp name, Country, region. etc.
If your ISP contract says is 30mb/s well is not working like this, if this is the speed they told you the real speed it will be about 10% of their recommended speed and you are lucky if your speed is 7mb/s, is a matemathic ecuation to calculate the speed of an end user. You can give a try and call up you ISP support if you believe is this a real problem.
