    The other thing we didn't bring up is the modem. Did you check with Comcast if it is approved for 100mbps? I couldn't find any info on an arris t882 modem.

    Ok. I went back and reread the posts.

    If both the desktop and laptop were using wired connections and only getting 42mbps, then it could just be old hardware. Fast Ethernet (100mbps) should have...

    Hmm. I was under the impression that his desktop was the wired one, not the laptop. If the wired connection on the laptop is getting 42, then I'd agree.

    42 is what is he getting now. His max connection is 100mbps (theoretical). He wanted to get closer to 100.


    The only way to get closer to 100mbps would be to upgrade the hardware. Whether it is...

    The Inspiron 1501 only has 802.11g, so it won't be able to hit 100mbps on a wireless connection. It does have a 10/100 fast ethernet wired connection, though.

    If you want 802.11n speeds, you'd...

    Wow. That's pretty cheap. n300 is an entry level 802.11n router, but it should do.

    Note that you also need 802.11n wireless network cards on your PCs. If you have an 802.11n router but only...

    802.11n and ac are WIRELESS standards.

    The FD5-7324-4 has 10/100 wired ports, so that shouldn't bottleneck your connection.

    For the router, do you mean a FD5-7324? If so, that that's only a 802.11g router. You need an 802.11n or 802.11ac router to get higher speeds. 802.11g is limited to a theoretical 54mbps, which...

    I doubt it would be your system. Even s775 MBs had gigabit ethernet.

    And you're sure that's the correct MB model #? Did it come out of an OEM system?

    They don't usually add features, so a BIOS update probably wouldn't help anyway.

    If it's on the Windows boot screen, then it has already passed the other boot devices.

    Did you look in Event Viewer for errors? There could be hanging services that are holding up the boot process.
