    Not sure whats happening here...

    2 laptops both running Win7 beta - results at speedtest.net indicate that download and upload speed are at about right for my ISP connection (1500kbps).

    Problem being, my desktop, it has a DWA-510 wireless NIC with Win7 beta running from the same AP as the above 2 laptops. I can't get speedtest to give me results higher that 500-600kbps downstream on the desktop.

    Uninstalled/reinstalled vista drivers (and i also tried XP drivers). But can't seem to get this nic to use the internet connection to it's fullest extent.

    Any ideas?

    I think it is just the beta code at this point. I was having issues with my wireless card (DLink DWA 552), and it kept dropping off a lot, so I switched to my gigabit LAN and wrote it off to being a beta.
