Question about HP Computers & Internet
I have a new HP desktop with windows 8, and an older HP desktop with windows Vista. I used speedtest.com. Both computers pings and upload speeds are roughly the same. The download speeds are way off. The new Hp is averaging 3.8 Mbps, while the old is at 20 Mbps. Both computers are wirelessly connected to a Linksys 2.4 Ghz router. Both have strong signal strength. Both have netgear wireless. The new HP has the n300. The new HP has Norton antivirus, while the old one has no protection as of now. When I disabled the Norton antivirus on the new HP, the download speed did not change. Any suggestions what the problem may be?

Have you change something in the web utility of WRT300N router. If not then I suggest take the wireless card out of you computer and reboot it. Try to configure your network connectivity through ethernet card, which is comparatively easy as to configure wireless network.
Run the disc that came your router and configure your network connectivity through its utility. Once you established network then you can try connecting wireless card back into your computer and take it from there.

Try to disable wireless card on your desktop. With both the wireless and cat-5 socket enabled, "WITHOUT" the proper bridge settings, they will conflict and not be able to read.

It sounds like a firewall is blocking the connection. I assume you`re using Windows, so go to Control Panel > Windows Firewall and disable it.The next step is, if your not using a proxy. Open up your browser, if you`re using Firefox go Tools>Options > Advanced> Settings... (Connection) and make sure the 'No proxy' option is checked, restart your browser. For Chrome go to Options>Under the Hood>Change proxy settings (Network) a new window will come up from here you select LAN settings(Note: This will change the proxy settings for your whole system) and select automatic if it`s on manual. Finally disable your antivirus software just for a short amount of time, and try to browse the web, just to make sure that it`s not interfering with the connection.
