Why the hell do I download slow on Steam but can load sites fast?

Your speed test results are pretty slow. 1.5mbps translates to a download speed of ~200kBps which is what Steam reports


A good amount of the time it goes over 500kb/s to 1mb/s but like I said it's f***ing random and it can either stop to 0 kb/s or less than 200


You mean 500mBps or 1mBps? The upper and lower case b has meaning. B is for bytes and b is for bits. There are 8 bits in a byte so you multiply or divide by 8 to convert between the two.



Whoops. I meant 500 Kilobyte to 1 Megabyte

Also like other poster said, you 1MB download is hilariously slow considering you said it was "fast"


Well it doesn't really matter on most websites because there isn't really a whole lot of data that needs to be downloaded the ping makes more of a difference than real high downloads.

Are there anything I can improve my wireless connection besides moving the router closer, move my computer closer to router or getting new isp? Like I said it's in my nazi brother's room and I don't like him so moving the router closer isn't a choice.

Those would be about your only 3 decent options, a wired connection would be your best bet but if that's out of the question as well I'd say buy another router and set it up as a repeater because they typically get a better connection than onboard WiFi.

Don't judge people without knowing the whole story. For all you know, his brother could have killed their mother and forced him to keep quiet.

There is indeed a solution! Well, an option at least. This this device called a powerline adapter that transfers a wired connection through the electrical wiring of your house. Look it up. I switched from wi-fi to them, and I've been very happy with the results.
