  1. I have multiple devices setup through the same connection. In the past the all got about 18mbps download. The other devices still get that but one device now maxes out between 35mbps. I haven't changed any hardware or software. It is a Windows 7 machine. Any ideas?

    Nope they were both wireless. I ended up fixing it by switching the usb port that the adapter was plugged in to. weird.

    Wireless is unpredictable. Good you got it sorted, but keep this in mind.
