Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I ran a speed test from the supplier, and was averaging between 11.7 and 19.2 MBS, through hard wire. Via wireless, I am between 3.1 and 3.9. What can I do?
Sometimes if you open device manager and expand network adapters, then right-click on the wireless adapter and click properties, on the advanced tab, every manufacturer writes their drivers differently, but some have a setting that is something like compatibility and the choices are faster and more compatible (you have to choose one or the other). Only change one setting at a time, write down what you change, what it started at, and where you set it, then close the property window and test. If it makes it worse, set it back before trying another setting.

The difference is probably due to the signal quality. The 802.11g has provisions for reducing the transmission speed when the signal quality is lower. This is called Dynamic Rate Scaling and may reduce the speed from 54 to 48, 36, 24,12, 9, 6 Mbps. The same is true for 802.11b WI-Fi but the speeds drop from 11 to 5.5, 2 and 1 mbps.
If you have an 802.11b device on your network the 802.11g devices will drop their speeds to the 802.11b speeds. This sucks and has been fixed in 802.11n.
Distance, metal obstructions etc all affect signal quality. You can purchase antennas to improve things but that is beyond the scope of your question.
