    Are you saying that your computer won't go above 7 Mbps on Ethernet ?? It is usually twice or much more faster on the ethernet connection that on wi-fi. Location, location, blockage is the prime factor when using wireless.

    Your computer bogged down running some unwanted process.

    Close all of your tabs and then ALT-CRT-DEL and look at your process in progress, details, wi-fi performance etc.

    Also look in start up within task manager and identify what is enabled .

    Please post your computer model name and what speed test are you running.

    Also clean your computer, I use CCLEANER to clean the registry too but there are other utilities and methods to do so.

    But ALT-CTRL-DEL will show the big picture.

    Your Aspire TC-875 should have no issues at all running at a much higher speed than 7Mbps. Make sure nothing else is running and use to get an accurate number and post a picture here showing that.

    Here is my speed test. 20 feet away from the router using Spectrum.

    Internet speed test

    Testing upload...

    456.1 Mbps download

    4.63 Mbps upload

    Latency: 29 ms

    Server: Atlanta

    Your Internet connection is very fast.

    Your Internet connection should be able to handle multiple devices streaming HD videos, video conferencing, and gaming at the same time.

    So, 60 times the 7Mbps... Your download test might have been from a slow web server or there may have been something else going that was hogging bandwidth. Latency is a little high to the speedtest server in Atlanta, but not terribly out of line.
