Using speedtest.net I get much slower download speeds with my new Compaq laptop that with older Toshiba laptop. The upload speeds are about the same for both devices (3.6 Mb/s). Same wireless network for both devices. What can I do to diagnose and fix new laptop?

Are the connection speeds the same on both? Is there another website you could test against?

I'm having the same wireless issue, i sold my Asus laptop which had a slower processor and bought the Compaq Presario CQ56 with the Intel Pentium 2.3ghz CPU and my wireless connection is a disaster.
I have looked through all the settings I can think of and can only take a guess at the wireless adapter being poor?!?
On speedtest.net my download speed on my PC (with wired connection) is 1218kB/s, on my laptop it is 260kB/s :-( what on earth!!!?

Has anyone found a solution for this problem? I have recently purchased a Compaq CQ56-115DX and the connection is less than desirable.
Any assistance is appreciated.
