Both computers connected to internet on same FIOS modem. Verizon can't help. Why is one computer connection much slower than the other one.
Both are running Windows 7 (build 6.1 version 7600)Home Premium 64 bit.
SLOW one is Velocity Micro (2010 new)Intel core i7 860 2.80 GHz 6.0GB Ram
speedtest speed 9.38 down 6.86 up
FAST one is ibuypower (2009 new) AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 4.0GB Ram
speedtest speed 23.06 down 11.13 up
Is there a way I can make internet settings on the slow internet computer the same as on the fast internet computer? I don't know what settings to even look at. Verizon has an optimizing tool for Win XP but doesn't have one for Win 7. I have switched ports on the modem, but get the same results. Solve this and you get the Genius Award for the month at least. I get the same numbers using Verizon's speed test as the www.speedtest.net.
