Re: does using a power efficent computer slow internet speed?
Internet speed can be affected by many things at different times. Things such as: cable, ethernet card, wireless adapter, the provider, and how many people are using the local line. To efficiently test internet speed you'd have to connect both computers to the same router and test at the same time with the same wireless adapters/ethernet cards. The last factor that could alter the internet speeds are the cables you're using. Make sure the CAT5e for the best performance. You also want to test to make sure the crossed pairs aren't reversed or crossed. Lastly, make sure that the connect at the end of the cable is touching all the 8 wires.
