I recently upgraded to 50 Mbps Download (and 10 Mbps upload) home wireless internet. However, my computer does not get more then 15 mbps unless I am in the same room as the router and modem (and my house isn't even big) where it gets ussually about 30-40 Mbps while my brother can get almost 50 Mbps without being even close to the router. I even get better speedtest.com results from my ipod than I do from my iPhone! I therefor am wondering whether I should upgrade my Laptop to an i3 proccesor or if I should just upgrade my wireless card because it is super irritating how slow my internet is.

I saw your post regarding the problems with the wifi speed. There are a number of different factors that effect the speed. It could very well be that your brother has a better wireless card. The one that you posted isn't a wireless card, it is your Ethernet card. Check your Device Manager under Network Adapters and let me know what you have listed there. As for the processor you can't upgrade it in this model as it is part of the system board or motherboard for the notebook.
