    Hi guys,
    over the weekend I moved my gaming rig to another room and am using a wireless connection now.
    The Problem is that I get very low connection speed now, around 0.90 mb/s DL while withmy MacBook Pro I am getting 25mb/s from the same place. Is there something in Windows 7 that slows the connection down?
    I am using a USB wireless adapter to my D-Link DIR-655. The signal is at 92% so should be ine and it tells me that it is connected to the router with 150MBIT.
    I hate windows!!!!!!
