internet connection

Hi Guys.

I have a Virgin Media superfibre 50 mbps connection, I have a desktop connected to router by ethernet cable, & a laptop that is wireless.

I have done speed checks on them both, The Laptop was 50.1 and the desktop was 6.83 ,Can anyone please tell me why these are so much different, I was under the impression that the cable would be better,

Any help would be great, Thanks in advance

Re: internet connection

Well if the wifi shows the full 50, I'd start by replacing the cat 5 cable from the box to the desktop

Re: internet connection

Had 2 engineers out and both said ok , Even though they put new cable and new router in, Made no differerence at all, one minute getting 50 next min getting 6, was waiting on another engineer to come ,Got fed up waiting so checked all cables coming into house, Guess what it was a loose virgin mediia cable that connects to router

 

 

PLEASE give me a job

 

Thanks
