Question about Zoom X6 (5590) DSL Modem (55900003)
I ghave a zoom x6 wireless router and even though my broadband package allows speed up to 8MB and BT say my area can get up to 6.5MB, I have been getting just 2.5MB! I recently queried this with my provider who asked what hardware I was using. This made me wonder whether the speed was any different when plugged directly into the router. It is! I got about 5.5MB! Why is there such a difference between the wireless and wired speeds?
Yes there is a difference although most router manufacturers claim that you can get 4 or even 6x times faster than 54Mbps of a regular 802.11g wireless standard, wired connection(10/100/1000Mbps) are still faster because they are less subjected to interference unlike wireless that are vulnerable to interference like cordless phones, microwave devices, lighting fixtures, distance and the obstruction between your wireless router and the computer.
