I bought a toshiba satellite m -s on April It has an intel pro wireless bg adapter - driver v I have it connected a netgear wgr v router it has a problem maintaining a constant speed I watched the network monitor on the notebook and it always shows a quot connection excellent quot however the speed is not constant - it will vary from - issue pro intel wireless speed connection 2200bg wireless mbsp to wireless connection speed issue - intel pro wireless 2200bg mbsp - but seldom does it maintain the mbsp on I sent the machine to toshiba - they replaced the network adapter - or so they said and wiped the hard drive and reinstalled the original software I rec d the machine back and find that the problem has not changed - it still will not maintain a steady speed so viewing files on other pcs on the lan takes forever and page loads on the net can also occupy too much time I have an older toshiba satellite with a netgear wireless wireless connection speed issue - intel pro wireless 2200bg wg t adapter I have watched the monitor on that one and it will show connection excellent and maintains a steady speed of mbsp these two machines can be sitting side by side or in separate rooms and still the old one will maintain it s connection and speed but the new will not maintain the speed I called toshiba up again and they want to say it s my router I explained to them that another toshiba on the same network does not faulter -- so how can it be the router they didn t want to but they are quot granting quot me service to send the machine back to them again I haven t done that yet as I thought I would see if there was some real help elsewhere -- like perhaps here just to be on the CYA side I updated the firmware on the netgear router - the problem remained also after reading several wireless issues on this board and learning how to do pings and such I did wireless connection speed issue - intel pro wireless 2200bg run the DrTCP and changed the mtu to dsl modem netopia caymen series router netgear v windows xp home - on all computers anyone have any idea why the new toshiba will not maintain a speed on the same router as the old toshiba that continues to work and maintain a speed I would prefer to resolve this issue without having to send it off to toshiba again as I m not convinced they actually checked the problem before swapping parts and reformatting nbsp

Hi I'm currently having a problem with my win7 64 bit desktops wireless speed. It has recently decided to slow to a crawl I'm talking to the point where the speed is measured in bytes not kilobytes when accessing the net and downloading files. I know it's the computer not my network as other wifi gear still works at full speed.

The only change I have made is to switch antivirus from kaspersky to mcafee, I use a Asus wl-138g v2 wifi card( I know it's old but it's been very reliable until now). Any help would be apreciated, thanx in advance.

Ok, so me and my counterparts have not been able to figure this out for about a month now. I bought a wireless usb adapter(b/g/n) for my rig and it was fine for a long time until about 2 months ago when I at somepoint started not getting full throughput.

My laptop(a/g/n) gets 50mbps and the adapter(b/g/n) now gets 30mbps. No, putting my rig next to the router doesn't help. The only way I can get full speed is via ethernet.

I've plugged in the bgn into my laptop and it still gets full.

Today, I've tried a friend's pci adapter and it only made a 1mbps difference.

any ideas?

A:Varying wireless speed "wtf?!" issue

Did the wireless adapter come with a software installation cd? If so, I would remove any wireless related drivers and the software, then reinstall the required drivers and software.

Could also try accessing the router from your laptop - there should be an option to restart/reset the modem. I've fixed speed related issued in a similar way.

I'm looking to buying a wireless router. My desktop however will be directly pluged into the router. So will my download speed etc... be faster on the draft N rather then then the G? or will they both be the same exact speed?

A:Wired speed on wireless network G and N...any speed difference?

depends on what models your looking at. If they are both 10/100 then you should get the same wired performance from both animals.

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Have you tried checking the various setting in the network folder? Also, your router has a configuration web page doesnt it? a page you would go to; in order to change the router settings? If so, log into that page and check the router settings. Also; even though the router is new I believe you mentioned; there might be a firmware upgrade for the router that you should be able to easily check for. Im not familiar with the type of router you have. but you should be able to get into the settings fairly easily.

when i double click the icon in my systray of the the flashing monitor, which opens my wireless network connection status window, the number next to Speed fluctuates between 11.0 Mbps to 54.0 Mbps. I just updated my dlink wbr 2310 routers firmware to 1.03 from 1.02 because previously i was getting randomly disconnected. Its only been a couple days, but i havnt yet noticed that ive been randomly disconnected anymore, but now my connection speed fluctuates, where with the old firmware, i never once saw it change. what could be causing this change? as its screwing up my online gaming, causing me to lag when it drops way down. I never had a problem with the speed changing before, and cant find any setting that looks like it could be linked to such an event, though im no networking expert, so i may be missing something. what does anyone think of this problem? thanks.

A:Wireless speed under wireless network connection status fluctuating????

google for a program called Network Stumbler. When it runs, you can see other
wifi systems near by and the real asset is the disclosure of all the channels in use.

pick a channel that is not used

monitor what activities you are performing when the connection rate changes;
it's likely that it only occurs when you're gaming. In that case, the stress of the
networked game is the actual cause of the rate change.

I have recently just got Virgin Media 10mb connection (wireless). Me and my friend share this connection, he has a mac i have a pc(laptop). It seems that my friend can get near enough full speed with downloads etc (tested on, my friend got nearly 10mb download speed, however I averaged at 6mb. Another example, my friend downloaded a file from a website, the speed went at about 1.5mb/s, I then downloaded the exact same file directly after his download had finished, my average download speed was 250kb/s.
My wireless card is "intel(r) pro/wireless 3945abg", it is a 54mb/s card so it should be more than capable to get the full 10mb/s that is offered to me. Any help in how to 'de-restrict' my card to obtain the full speed?

@ginoversace?, welcome to the forum. Your RAM is Double Data Rate (DDR).  Therefore, if you take 800 MHz x 2 you have 1600 MHz. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

I recently added memory to my Gateway FX 7026 quad core. After I was done with the process, during the post process an error flashed across (too quick to capture unfortunately), but it had to do with a Microsoft Handler of some sort. The net result is that my cpu cooling fan is running constantly at top speed now. I have had the system for 6 months and it has never run like this before.

Any ideas?

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

Keep us informed!

I have a dell demension 3000 ( i know nothing special) The original specs were a 512mb ram and a 2.8ghz p4 and i have upgraded it to 2gb of ram and a ati radeon X1550 256mb graphics card. I just reformatted from xp home to xp pro and i have noticed a sever slow down in the computer before battlefield 2 maps would load within 2 to 3 mins and ran smooth now they take close to 5 and are jitterey in the game and simple task on the computer are all jittery and slow to what could be causeing this. is it xp pro or something else. I have ran virus scan and several disk defrag waht could be wrong.

A:Speed issue

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

I've recently moved home, and because of the distance from the router, am forced to be wireless. now, we have a cable line that is generally very fast.

When I try to download files I only get like 50KBPS. I was thinking due to the distance that was what was killing performance, since If I moved my computer out to the router my download speeds jumped to almost 900-1MBPS. Recently however, I purchashed a laptop for work/pleasure, and when I was downloading I was pulling 790Kbps, and the laptop was right next to my PC. My desktop/router are both wireless N, but the laptop has only a G capability. What would cause such a degraded performance on the desktop versus the laptop. As far as I can tell, my PC is spyware free, and the laptop Specs wise is not nearly as powerfull. Any insight is greatly appreciated

I am using a Linksys G PCI Adapter with SRX (WMP54GX). I am sharing with my neighbor who has the router. My speed is slower than her speed. (she has come over with her laptop) and the signal strength is low to good. I am running XP home SP2. Is there any way for me to increase the speed?? Any help is appreciated.

A:Wireless Speed

sometimes the speed will reduce because of signal strength - does she have the exact same wireless hardware make/model as you.
also there maybe an option in the wireless adapters setting to change the setting - it may be set to type B rather than B and that would make the speed slow anyway.
Re Johnwill comment - my mistake here, I'm thinking of transfering data between PC's and that slows down around my house from 22MB to as little as 2MB However,my internet connection is only 1MB so we notice NO difference from the internet. also when I hover oveer the wireless icon you can see the speed, and as I move around the speeed drops - BUT again no impact on interent connection
So Just because your speed is different to hers on the icon - that should still make little difference to the page loading - unless your PC only has 64MB of memory and your running XP with loads of other applications running....

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.


A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

Hello everyone, I am using a linksys WRT54GS wireless router and usually works fine, but lately I noticed it's been getting slow speeds and then when I restart the router it goes back to normal and very fast for about 20-30 minutes (could vary and be longer sometimes). But then after that it goes back to it's slow speed until I restart it again.

When I bypass the router it works fine with direct connection, all my firmware is upgraded, getting 100% signal strength, it's not just my computer because when I ping from the router admin panel it gets all request timed out aswell.

Thanks for any help I can get.

I am using a D-Link DIR-655 router on a Windows Home Server network.

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

The WHS box needs to be downstairs.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Any ideas?

Hello Everyone,

i am downloading google softwares with fast speed but slow on other sites slow speed.....

I mean when i download any google softwares and youtube videos speed will be about 1Mbps but when i download from any sites like or other sites speed will be about 25 kbps...please guide me ...



A:Issue on download speed

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.

I'm running a DSL connection from a router to my wireless laptop. Regularly my speeds aren't quite as advertised but I still get 2-4 Mb/s generally. Lately it seems my web browsing has been sluggish and doing a speed test, this is proven.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

Can anyone explain to me why this might be? I thought my slow speed could be due to my latency, but that doesn't explain to me why bittorrent is so much faster!

I think you'll find that some wireless cards just don't yield the maximum throughput. I've run speed checks on my connection here, 15mbit/15mbit fiber, and my Toshiba running XP-Pro gets 15mbit, but the HP running Vista-32 only manages around 9mbit. Never been able to squeeze any more speed from the HP on the speed test.

My old router (Linksys WRT54GL) is acting up so I figured it's time for me to change it.

Looking for a new one, I didn't know what all those N numbers mean until read this article:

Well the download/upload speed that I subscribe from my local cable company is 75Mbps/5Mbps.
I mean, even with the N300 router, that should be fast enough right?
Why do I need to get N600 or even N900 routers when the bottle neck is at the speed from the provider?

Anyway, I'm looking at these routers recommended from these two lists:,2817,2398080,00.asp

Any comments or suggestion for which one?

Hey Guys

As the title might suggest im having a proplem with the speed of my wireless products

I think i should start with exsplaning how my network is connected.

My moms computer is connected to the router, my DSL Modem is also connected to the Router.

I am connect though wireless to the router via an exsternal adapter.

Both the router and the adapter are the newest N1. the router is the Belkin N1 Vison, and my adaptor is the N1 Wireless USB Adapter.

When i first connected too the internet i was resiving speeds of just over 100mbps.
But now i am only getting 54mbps.

I have been to the tech help page on the belkin website and have tried changing the 13 channels.

I have also made sure the the adapter and the router are both up to date with there drivers.

Any advice or suggestion would be great.

I recently had to buy a new laptop because my old one had a bunch of issues.

It is a Dell, and the wireless card is a 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN

When I do a speed test, I am hitting about 30-35Mbps. My Internet connection has max speeds of 100Mbps, and on my work laptop I can get around 95Mbps wirelessly.

I thought with the /n they could hit speeds higher than 100Mbps? Are there settings I can try changing on the laptop to get my wireless speeds faster, or could it be that the card Dell included just isn't powerful enough to get these speeds?

I don't want to mess with the hardware too much since this was the cause of most problems on my old laptop, but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions to try.

Thanks in advance,

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Dell's web site.

If you show the following we may see some clues as to if and how throughput can be improved.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.

I have 2 wireless laptops, 2007 Acer w/Vista and 2006 Compaq w/XP. Hooked to RR turbo 15mbps. No problem the Acer. It connects @54mbps with a speed of 13-14mbps and all 5 bars on signal strength meter. But the Compaq will connect 48 to 54mbps but only at 2.something to mid 3.44mbps speed with only 3-4 bars on signal strength meter. The speed is definitely slower by the longer time to download pages. If either 'top is connected directly to router with cat5 cable they both connect to internet at 13-14mbps OK. Question. In the Compaq is it possible even tho the built in wireless card works it get weak and not receive the signal as strong and with less speed as when was new? Or whatelse would make it work fine wired direct but slower when going wireless?

I live in an area that doesn't have cable or DSL so I opted for buying a wireless card for my computer. That has helped a lot but I can only get two bars of signal strength and I still don't get enough bandwidth to get my favorite internet radio station without constant rebuffering. There is an external antenna jack on the card, so I wanted to buy an antenna (a rare thing, apparently) but I don't want to spend the extra 150.00 if it won't make a difference. So, my question is: Is signal strength proportional to bandwidth?

You really should secure your wireless to make sure nobody is hogging your bandwidth. Use WPA(2)-PSK if all your devices support it. At least use WEP 'cause that will slow somebody down longer than your "hiding" SSID or making them spoof a MAC address.

Are you sure your speed drops are not caused by your other devices using bandwidth?

Hi Parker,

Can you or do you have access to your router? You might have to navigate to the wireless tab of your router and fiddle with the wireless mode. If it's on a Mixed Mode, change it to an N or G/N, you may also try this method from your Wi-Fi device. It seems to be that your Wi-Fi device is not hand-shaking with your router's wireless mode.

Im fairly adept at networking so I think Im missing something simple here. I just formatted an HP laptop and the wireless is working ok through the windows wireless zero config. There were 2 sofpaq's for the wireless on HP's site but their online support is telling me to only get 1 of them. The reason I even went there was because it only connects to wireless networks at 11Mbps and its supposed to be capable of 54Mbps. Ive now downloaded the software they recommend and installed it but there is no change. I cant find anywhere to change the speed either. I thought at one time I saw a setting in my Linksys router to adjust bandwidth but Im not finding that.

I'm using a Belkin F6D3000(Atheros Chipset) (g/a/b) wireless adapter that is able to get 108mbs on XP Pro(with and without the "controlling" software). The Problem is, on the 7000 x64 Beta, it will only connect at 54mbs, even with the newest Atheros drivers. Is there some way to fix this, or does 7000 just have problems with super G?

A:Wireless Speed Bottlenecked!

Because it's surely only using one standard instead of using both a and g standards to achieve 108 Mbps under windows 7 (and under vista?). 802.11g (2.4Ghz -54Mbps) + 802.11a (5Ghz - 54Mbps) = 108Mbps

Your adapter is also marked as unsupported for vista by Belklin -> Belkin : Support : Vista

Yet, they give instruction to install drivers on Vista -> Belkin : Support : Vista Installation Instructions and Atheros has Vista 32bits and x64 drivers for the chipset your card is using.

However, my girlfriend's Macintosh when connected to the WIRELESS network, on the same test can get 5.6 kb/s.

Kinda risky to have Internet Connection Sharing enabled when using a router that also uses the 192.168.0.x subnet. Suggest you disable ICS and use dynamic addressing on your wireless TCP/IP properties.

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from Dell's web site. Use your Service Tag for easier searching.

A conundrum. My mom's Dell Inspirion E1505 runs super slow on her wireless at home. In fact, in the time it has taken me to Google this site, register and make this post, she is still waiting for one page to load.

However, the computer runs normally on the wireless everywhere else.

My Dell, my sister's laptop and an Uncle have all been able to successfully connect to her network and surf without problem.

She's chipped it up, bought a new battery, but the computer continues to run slowly. Any other suggestions?

A:Wireless Connection Speed

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
For wired connection issues, have you booted in Safe Mode with Networking to see if that changes the symptoms?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:





Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

A:Internet Download Speed Issue

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.

Hi all

My LAN interface connects only with 100Mb/s speed with no reason though it is 1Gbit capable card (Intel 82577LC). I tried it with 3 devices (router, switch, PC directly) and a lot of cables, which are works with 1 GE speed between each other except for Toshiba laptop.

Did anybody meet this problem too? Is there any fix for it?

A:LAN 1G speed issue in Satellite R630-143

The integrated Intel 82577LC Lan card supports the 10 BASE-T / 100 BASE-TX and 1000 BASE-T network standards.

Usually you can change some LAN card options in the LAN card properties.
Go to device manager -> LAN card (Ethernet) -> click right and choose Properties.
Switch to ?Advanced? tab.

Now you should see all options which could be optimized

I have recently chosen a new ISP and am paying for a 1Mbps connection.The problem is that i get a very low download speed of say 16Kbps only when i download using IE. Howver when i use a download manager speeds move up to 100 Kbps and the download gets completed in 1/7th of the time.

Another thing that seems related is that even if i download 6 -7 files at one time (simultaneously) each one will download at around 16 - 18 Kbps totalling to the same overall seed that i expect to get on my 1Mbps connection

Is there something i can try from my end before i blame my ISP?

So originally I was using a Rosewill USB HDD Dock with my WD HD103SI 1 TB Hard Drive. Everything went great, but eventually filled that up. I bought a new WD HD103SJ 1 TB Hard Drive, formatted it as NTFS, but the speeds are horrible. Transfer rates say around 2.0 mb/s give or take .5 mb/s, so it takes around an hour to transfer a 4 GB file to the hard drive, whereas it took 4 minutes on my other one. I didn't change any settings, I just plopped a new hard drive into the same HDD dock, but the speeds I am getting on that hard drive are poor. I also noticed that the file text on the hard drive is in blue? not sure why that is...

I recently reinstalled XP on my computer after erasing my entire HD, the problem is that it seems to be a lot slower for some things. For example, when I open a folder and drag the window across the screen, it's extremely laggy, when it used to be perfectly fine and smooth. Or when I scroll down on a webpage, it's also very slow and the frame rate, I guess, is horrible.

I suspect this might be because the Windows partition is 5GB instead of 30GB on my HD.

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

I am using a Dell XPS 8100 with a Atheros DW1525 wireless adapter. I have gone through 3 windows reinstalls at the recommendation of Dell Tech support. I have had an on site tech bring a new adapter to correct the problem. My router is a Netgear Wireless N and have no difficulty in getting 5 to 6 mb/sec on my small laptop located next to my 8100, but I usually only get a max of 3 mb/sec on the 8100 and much of the time I only get 1mb/sec or less. I use to evaluate. Upload speed is normal at each test. When the tech was here, he had me boot in safe mode with networking and got almost 10 mb, but now even safe mode produces no more than 2 to 3 mb. I have the latest driver installed.

But when I connect by etharnet my download is at a constant rate of 35mb/s

I always have a signal strength of 2/5, while my next door neighbors signal is always 5/5 for me..I understand our connections are different..but if there were some type of interference wouldn't my signal still be stronger since it's closer?

As my name implies, I am a true novice when it comes to computers and networking. I recently bought a Netgear 108 Mbps Super Wireless ADSL Router (DG834GT) which is connected to my phone line. In order to access the internet from my notebook, I also purchased a Netgear 108 Mbps USB 2.0 Adapter (WG111T). The connection itself works well, however the Wireless Connection icon on the system tray states that the speed is 54 Mbps. I would have expected 108 Mbps since my notebook is placed next to the router. Have I been sold a 54 Mbps instead of a 108 Mbps adapter? Thanks for your help.

You have to explicitly enable the 108Mbit mode both on the router and the wireless adapter.
