Default Re: downloads slow on only one computer connected to router

I never really had to do port forwarding for my desktop or the laptop i am having trouble with, and still got decent download/upload speeds before. I tried downloading at friends house (he also has comcast) and got the same slow speeds there as well. What is going on? Thanks for the help.

Also, i tried to set up a static ip address to do port forwarding, but that would require me to get DNS Servers/Name Servers info from comcast? Anybody try this? Comcast is evil.
Do you have an Anti-Virus program installed on the computer with a slow connection? Try disabling that, and see if it fixes it. It could also be a virus maybe.
