I have just purchased a Abit Airpace wireless internet card. It works fine, and it gets the internet realy well, but it has RUBBISH download speeds. I use Steam to play my games (www.steampowered.com), such as Counterstrike Source and Half Life 2, and it is downloading at under 20kb/s!
I have no antivirus software, and windows firewall is offline, but still the problem presists. However, firefox, my browser, downloads at around 50kb/s!
Seeing as i have just brought a new computer and hard drive, and i am having to download all the windows updates, as well as the massive Half Life 2 game, i dont realy want to do it at an average of 14kb/s!
My laptop, which has a built in wireless reciever, has good download speeds in steam, which are the same as the firefox one.
Can anyone help me?
I use a BT Voyager 2091 wireless ASDL router, with encryption and no one is stealing it...
