When I download stuff the download speed is always around 1 MB/s. I use a wireless conection and I don't have any router, and I get the same speed on different computers even with different operative systems, I have windows 7 in one of them, and in the other I have ubuntu 10.04. By the way I used a website to test my internet speed connection and the results were pretty close to 12MB/s sometimes 11.9MB/s, but a minute after I was downloading a file at 1.2 MB/s. What can be causing the problem??
