my computer has been slow when online, so i called my ISP and have been told im playing for 1.5mps download speed. i did a speed test and it was very close to this. This speed is good enough for me, but the problem is the most i could ever achieve is only 185 kbps. So i asked a friend and he said getting a new network card should resolve this issue. Im i newbie to this stuff but you guys are experts so i wanted your advice? here are some specs of my PC thanks guys. i hope you can help me out. My current network adapter= Broadcom 440x 10/100 intergrated Controller MY PC = intel(r) Pentium(R) 4cpu 2.20GHz 2.19 GHz, 256 MB of RAM thanks guys i hope this helps out. If you have any ideas of what to get please feel free to document your suggestions.
