Question about TP-LINK Computers & Internet
Have superfast 70Mbps+ BT infinity 2 fibre optic and all my laptops that have built in wirteless adaptors are connecting with download speeds in excess of 40 and 50Mbps which is great. I have an XP Desktop that I have used a 1560Mbps TP-LINK TL-WN725N and installed that using their CD but I am only getting 0.8Mbps download speed but 3Mbps upload speeds (I have 10 - 20Mbps upoloads on all other laptops). Is there a configuration I need to change for the download speed to be increased here on my XP desktop?? Thanks. Paul

Try opening internet explorer and typing in http://192.168.0.1 in the address box
If this doesn't work try http://192.168.1.1
For the username and password put admin for username and leave the password blank
Now look for an option for the Wireless Settings and change the channel from usually channel 11 to channel 4 your laptop may now see it. Otherwise try another, channels available in the uk are 1-12, I think it's 1 to 11 in USA

Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

If you are paying for a downlink speed of 384 Kbps you should be getting at lease around 300. First bypass your router - connect your cable/DSL ethernet line directly from the modem to your PC. Go to http://www.auditmypc.com/internet-speed-test.asp run the speed test and see what your download speed is.
If it's less than 300 call your service provider & ask them to check out your line. If they say that you are getting 300 Kbps or more, you have a problem with the ethernet card in your PC. Replace it.
Of course, if your speed is OK when you bypass the router, you have a router problem. Contact the manufacturer or replace it.

Try disabling Windows power control over the wireless adapter. you can do this from control panel > network adapters > double-click the wireless adapter > "Power management" tab > un-check the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
