Slow Intel 2915 Downloads vs Fast Netgear Adapter

    I have an Asus Z71A to which I recently added an Intel 2915 card. The
    problem is that this card's download performance lags behind what I had
    before - a Netgear PCMCIA card - by about 4:1; I get something like 4.5
    MB with the Netgear and at best 1 MB with the 2915.

    The router is a Linksys "B" as is the Netgear card. I have changed RWIN
    settings but to no avail - the 2915 still underperforms. I am using
    Intel's latest drivers, so that is not an issue. The 2915 gets
    excellent recpetion - better than the Netgear.


    I am stumped and would appreciate some thoughts on what the problem
    might be.

    Reboot your entire modem/router/computer system. See if that helps.
