Different speeds, same router

Morning .... I've noticed much slower browsing speeds on my laptop lately. I have a wireless router supporting two laptops on the same connection. One (mine!) is getting consistent speed checks (www.adslguide.org.uk) of around 132/265 true - the other (my wife's) is getting more like 483/263.

What should I be looking at on MY laptop to determine why it's slower? Surely they are using the same connection?

Both boxes are set up the same - Win 2k - she has 256 MB RAM, I've got 512MB and more stuff running as services (like Oracle), but that's the only real difference between them.

Ideas please!??!?

RE: Different speeds, same router

And further to my earlier message, I'm now getting 45.10kbps bandwidth reading ... somewhat less than a 56k modem.

Shurely shome mishtake.

If I still have a connection in the morning, I'll be pleased for any further thoughts.

Whoa! Just got an answer - "I will be kept informed via the usual channels". Gawd, I hope I can still receive the usual channels.
