Strange router connections?
-- hide signature --

Running Cat 5 to one desktop PC, I get:

Ping: 46 ms and 124.36 Mbps download and 12.18 upload, BUT..

on another PC connected with Cat 5, I get:

Ping: 36ms and 16.71 download and 12.06 upload

The higher results are using a Dell 9100 desktop and the lower results are using a Dell 530 Inspiron desktop.

Is it possible to "adjust" the Dell 530, so it'll get similar connection results?  Maybe buy newer/better Cat 5/6/7 cables?  Please advise..

ps: i presume the NIC card inside the Dell 530 is the main reason for these vast connection differences..

Maybe, I'll try a wireless dongle, got a few laying around, but they tend to "drop signal" and must be "replugged in", again and again...
