can you wire connect the laptop straight to the modem to see if you get better bandwidth? that would prove it is something with your wireless rig that is holding the laptop back, or not.

don't have one what? do you mean you have a modem/router combo that is wireless only with no lan port? you mentioned the desktop is connected via hardwire to the netgear combo... if you plug the laptop in its place, what speeds to you get?
are we talking dsl here, or fios?

I am leaving out the server OS, server webserver software, antivirus, plugins, DDoS attacks, worldwide events that has everybody running to their PC to get the latest news and weather conditions but it shows you how many steps are in this process that can cause a page to load slowly... Good luck on finding the culprit...
