i have an old dell dimension 2400 series which has been heavily modified (from what im told). it has 1 gig, 16 mb of RAM, so i'm pretty sure it isnt a problem caused by my computer ( it runs great, just not during MMORPGs which is where it counts for me) anyway, the problem is that i have a 50 mbps connection. my mothers laptop (hp pavilion with 2 mb less RAM than my pc :/) hits about 20-30 mbps on speedtest.net. my computer (keep in mind that it runs really well despite its age) only gets from 8 to 16. significant unexplained difference. i'm connected through a netgear n300 wireless adapter which says it handles up to 300 mbps, and the laptop uses its built in wireless adapter. what could be the problem and how could i fix it? thanks.
