Change the primary DNS to 8.8.8.8 (Google's DNS), and remove the secondary. Then try running a speedtest again and post the results.

Lately there have been a lot of known issues resolving to certain connections using some DNS servers.

Hey,

Result is the same:

And BTW, I just ran the speedtest on my MacBook, I'm at 30Mbps D/L and 4Mbps U/L

that doesnt make sense, ill post mine in a minute for comparison, im also on wireless on my desktop

EDIT: this is with 2 bars strength, and 3 games up.

something is definently up with your adapter, if i get full bars, my desktop easily holds 25 up / 25 down

i also did my test further away, to show comparison

my ping on servers within 50 miles were between 7 and 12

I'm pretty sure something in the hardware is broken. There's no other explanation... I've tried different DNS combos, re-installed drivers, I've updated router settings, everything short of getting a new router.
I recently had my computer shipped from Europe and didn't remove the antenna so there's always a chance that the antenna itself is damaged, though it doesn't really look like it is...

There are 3 Macbooks, 1 PC laptop, a Wii, several cell phones, and a Kindle all connected through Wifi on this same network - no issues on any of those items - just my desktop PC.
The only possibilities I'm seeing are:
1. Broken hardware
2. Incompatibility between wifi adapter and router

just a thought to try. You are wireless doing this. Can you go wired and run the same tests. I am very suspicions of the wireless adapter but if you can get a cat-5 cable and check the wired port it then it really does put the onus on the wireless adapter.

I'd seriously guess that it's your adapter. Looks like those models got discontinued in '07...

I will give this a try.

But I am now even more suspicious that my adapter is broken because I just touched the antenna and when I did it disconnected.
I'm on my MacBook now, same room, same DNS addresses:

And again for fun, have you disabled all offloading settings for your adapter?

Incompatibility between wifi adapter and router
^This. I have seen this issue with this wifi adapter and the router many many times at work...hard to try to explain to people that everything purchased won't just work flawlessly.

Hey guys,

Just a quick update.
My D-Link adapter was damaged during transport. I purchased a new adapter (TP-Link WN951N) and am now back to getting normal D/L speeds.
I didn't try disabling the offloading settings as DP-Unique suggested, but I am fairly certain that the problem was the damaged adapter. The antenna was broken but also broke the little plug itself.

Latest speedtest: 1585618537.png

I guess next step is a new router for better connections smile.gif
