Download speed on internet too slow - Compaq Presario CQ56

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?

Re: Download speed on internet too slow - Compaq Presario CQ56

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

    Re: Download speed on internet too slow - Compaq Presario CQ56

    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.
