My laptop is the only device other than my cellphone hooked up to Wi-fi at any given time unless my xbox is turned on, or a friend is over gaming. My laptop is an Alienware m17x R4 with Killer Wireless (to help enhance my connection) yet the max download speed I've ever gotten is 8mb per second (absolutely not 250mbps), and my ping gets me kicked out of games all the time. I stay at around an 80% signal strength (according to Killer Wireless, and my cellphone Wi-Fi bars) even when i sit right next to the modem. What's the deal?


Sorry to sound arrogant it is just a little frustrating to think I've been paying $120 a month for this internet for half a year so I can have several buddies over and game with an awesome connection but even when there are 3 of us playing at once sometimes it gets to be pretty laggy.
