Download Speeds

Message 1 of 2

Hi,

My family and I have the 50 mbps Verizon plan.  When we do speed tests (over WiFi, not a hardwired or ethernet conneciton,) I get 55 mbps.  Good, right?  Well, whenever I try to download something, anything really, I only get 2 mbps.  

I'm almost positive it's not my wireless card or anyother hardware issues.  Thanks in advance.

Has it ever downloaded faster than that, and do you know if it's 2MBits or MBytes

Downloads through browsers display results differently,  I believe internet explorer is Bits, and alternate browsers show Bytes.
