    slow download speeds since moving to xp from vista home premium

    Hello

    I have a compaq presario C700, had vista home premium on it. this was so slow, I removed it and installed XP home. of course, I had to download all new drivers to get the hardware to work.

    only one problem left to solve: My download speeds are now half of what they were, and I'm not sure why?

    any ideas how to fix this? Upload speeds seems to be almost the same.

    example: download speeds were about 21mbps. now their about 10mbps.

    thanks in advance for any tips.

    I would guess it is a driver problem.

    Are you connecting wired or wireless?

    wireless. I too was thinking a driver issue, but I'm not sure how to proceed or what to look for. Once I removed vista and installed xp home, I had to hunt for and install xp versions of the drivers..... I opened up device manager, and I don't see any errors there...
