All wireless devices have fast download speeds except for my PC?

Hi all my wireless devices have fast download speeds but my PC that's connected to a powerline adaptor (goes upt to 2000mbps) is soooo slow. My iphone is showing 150 mbps download while my pc is only at 4 mbps.

 

So my question is... how would I go about switching bandwidth priority to my PC?

Have you checked your speeds directly out of the modem? It sounds like the problem is the extender

Easiest way to tell is to plug in a different device to the powerline adapter - if it suffers from the same slow connection then the powerline adapter is the issue.

A major problem with them is that if your outlet is in a different circuit from the main unit (connected to your router or gateway), i.e. crossing a fuse box, you could have issues with speed.
