Hi, I have been working on an Emachines E627 w/Win7 and have noticed my wireless speeds around around 10x slower than on dell laptop running XP. I have verified the slower speed using speedtest.net, also I have updated the driver for Atheros AR5B95 Wireless Network Adapter and the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter (which i have no idea what this one does as i disabled it and nothing changed???) and the Atheros ethernet controller just for fun. I have also port forwarded the win7 and xp machine on my router but still receive slow speed on the win 7 machine. I am out of ideas and am beginning to think that maybe the Atheros wireless adapter sucks?....also another thing the adaptor connection speed states 150 mbps where im used to seeing the standard 54 mpbs. I am at a loss to what else I can change to speed the win 7 machine up to the speeds I get on my xp machine.....or does the atheros adapter just plain suck? Any suggestions or other tips you guys may have would be great and appreciated. Thank you. p.s. I have turned off any power consumption savers for the adapter as well.
