Hi, I recently built my new PC, and have been experiencing really slow download speeds, even with fast link to my router. No other device, even in the same room gets this, I have even got a new wireless adapter and its even worse, there has to be something wrong here, please Help!

Maybe there is someone near you on the same wi-fi channel. You can change that setting using the "192.168.0.1" router menu.

a build or at least the wifi-cards in question would be helpful.

its sorted now, turns out it was a wireless keyboard and mouse set that was interfering, i got a wired one and its all fine now. and dear chuck216, some of us aren't near the router to use Ethernet, so yes it was a dumb question

That last comment seemed kind of harsh to Chuck216. He was giving you a valid step to diagnose your problem. If your ability to make use of this technique is not there then a simple "Thank You" would suffice.

Here's a dumb question: If it's a desktop PC why are you using wireless? wireless is for laptops and tablets, not for real computers, plug in an ethernet cable.
