computer & internet

Postby malotidi » Sat Nov 03, 2012 10:09 am

Does sharing internet make the internet slow down on one computer? I have a pc and wireless laptop connected with a router. The internet on the laptop is fine. When the laptop is connected it makes my computer internet slow, the internet is slow not the computer. When the laptop is not connected the internet on the computer works fine.

If that happens every time the laptop is connected even when you're not downloading anything on the laptop (torrents or otherwise) then no, this isn't normal. You should check whether it's the problem with laptop (maybe there is some background service or malware that's consuming internet bandwidth) or with router (connect some other laptop and see if it causes the same slowdown).

It also depends upon your interpretation of slow. In this case, only the bandwidth slows down but the PC it's is still operating at normal speed.
