    Built my first PC a few weeks ago, didn't get the WLAN card until a few days ago. Installed it all fine and connected to my wireless router (BT HomeHub v3) but the speed is inconsistent, and also seems to vary on what program I am using to download. With Usenet (SABnzbd) I get anywhere between 50Kbps and 16Mbps. With Steam I get around 700Kbps to 12Mbps.
    The card is an Edimax EW-7722IN card. I get a consistent speed of around 18Mbps with my laptops integrated wlan card.
    What could be the problem?

    Could be the signal is being interfered by the computer case or the static field given off by the electronics inside.
