New build - Connection is SO SLOW

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all - I just finished my first build and stuck my PCI network adapter in and my connection speed is horribly slow. I've reseated it multiple times and reinstalled drivers etc. but that hasn't done the trick for me. I ran a speedtest on my netbook and got about 32 ms ping and 10.45mb download speed, compared to the speedtest I ran on this (right next to the netbook) getting 372 ping and 1.30mb download speed. It is seated properly, I have 3 antennas each pointing in the direction of the router (1 more up 1 direct and 1 more down). The router is about 30 feet away, through a hallway + wall. Would anyone have any suggestions as to what could be making this connect so much slower than the POS netbook? I know my equipment is rather cheap, but it shouldn't be SO slow.

Adapter - TRENDnet TEW-623PI 32-Bit PCI Rev. 2.1/2.2/2.3 Wireless N-Draft
Router - Actiontec MI424-WR Rev. C

If I can't find a solution I figure I'll probably try to pick up a USB adapter tomorrow. I don't know why this slow connection is occurring though. Thanks!


Edit: I should probably mention that I can't screw the bloody thing onto the case otherwise it comes out of its seating a bit (I tried it screwed it, impaired connection further)

It may be in your network adapter settings. If your router is a Wireless-G router you and your adapter is wireless-N or B/G you may have to change the settings in control panel>>> network settings >>> network adapters >>> (Wireless adapter) Properties.
