In this case can you please tell me what is your wireless router and how may computer do you have so we can check if this is a problem with the wireless router or with the netgear wireless adapter. because if you only have 1 wireless computer so the problem here is with the wireless router we may need to change some wireless settings like the wireless channel .....

Netgear wireless router: WNA3400 Netgear wireless USB adapter: WNA1100 Can get it to connect at 150 mbs but after a few minutes it always goes back to 65 mbs. Thanks.


It seems that your network is getting wireless interference and that is the reason why the adapter is dropping the connection to a lower speed. Please go ahead and change the wireless channel on the wireless router to resolve the issue.

Please revert for any further clarification.
