My old wireless router crapped out Monday so I had to get another. The new one is a Netgear MR814v2. The desktop connected to the router is connecting to the Internet fast, over 2MB. My wireless laptop is connecting at 54K max!! I do not have file sharing enabled. I have tried both secured and unsecured connections without any difference. The router is not picking up anything else. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A45-S150 with integrated wireless. Running Windows XP Pro. The Windows firewall is disabled and I am running Norton. Why is the laptop so slow? It does this regardless of location--anywhere from two foot away to in another room. I have went through everything on Netgear's website and tried reconfiguring but nothing helps. I am just before trying a different router ;U Thanks for any help Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
