So me and my roommate are both hard wired into a router he has the first port and i have the 2nd...his computer is older and is damaged a bit. (4g ram prolly 2ghz). My computer is 12g ddr3 and 2.6 ghz...now i pull off the router about 1.0 Gbps and hes getting roughly 65 Mbps. He has a longer ethernet cord about 8ft where as mine is only 4 ft. He insists that when my computer is off hes getting way faster download speeds but i don\'t find a difference when his if off....out of both of us he downloads roughly 200Gbs worth of crap a month vs my 50Gbs. He has a Ps3 hooked up constantly via wireless where he plays his games on. and i constantly am either playing Diablo 3 or League of Legends and we both stream TV shows occasionally. Now is this just a matter of bandwidth hogging on both our parts or is there a reason hes getting shittier speeds from the router even tho hes in port 1. its just weird that im getting the better speeds in port 2.
both running windows 7.
