Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

Slow Wireless I have high speed internet, a router and a USB, but it's really really slow. I was told that because my computer was 4 years old a pci card would make things faster?


Answers :

I'll assume from the wording of your question that you are using a USB wireless adapter.For the most part you get better performance out of a PCI wireless card (and better range) but you should also run a scan and clean with this program to make sure that your performance issues aren't due to spyware or malware also.
