Hello,

I'm a little bit frustrated since I struggle with that issue from weeks... I've got a laptop placed nearly in the same place where stational-PC stands out.
On my laptop I have 10 mega down and 1,5 mega up, but on the stational computer in nearby, I've got only 0,9 mega down and 0,6 mega up (I've bought new usb adapter to see is it work better - no.). Moreover the signal frequently cuts off.

What I'm suppose to do?
Please help.
Paul

Paul,

Hang in there, let us take a look at what is happening.

Is it a USB 2.0 port, or USB, as USB throughput max's out at 1.5 MB/s

Now, 2.0, you can get 60 MB/s. So, seeing those differences, I would guess your bus is moving as fast as it can, as it is USB, and not 2.0. NO PUN INTENDED!

Let us know!

Do not forget to calc overhead!

In specification of this tp-link adapter I see that there's "USB 2.0 interface" written, so it should be fine with throughputs.
What do you mean by overhead? My adapter is plugged on thee floor (where PC station stands), directed to the router (right behind the narrow wall) and it is fresh-product from the store so it shouldn't be overheated.

Overhead is the bandwidth used up by the communication itself. Some of the bandwidth has to used for "instruction".

Thanks ac3mark, I have found out which one is 2.0 and 1.0 in a Device Manager, although that didn't say to me where they are. I have lots of usb devices on my computer, so maybe I must plug adapter to every one and check if this is okay? Is it other way to do this?

I hope you solved my problem now :)

Paul,

Although the device may be a 2.0 , the port may not be.

Your speed is consistent with a USB port.
