The rangemax may be 108mbps transfer speed, but are your wireless network adapters able to run at 108mbps?, as most earlier ones will only run at 54 mpbs, especially notebook wireless adapters. You will only gain on 108mbps transfer speed when file transfering or streaming to each pc, it will not speed up your internet connection, although you probably already are aware of that.

I have a D-Link DIR-825 router and a D-link WUA-2340 adapter. The adapter is plugged into a windows xp desktop. My problem is that the adapter is only running at 54mbps when the box clearly says...

The D-Link WUA-2340 is an 802.11g adapter. This means that 54mbps is the fastest that it can run. It is backward compatible with the 802.11b standard which runs at 11mbps. However, it is not forward compatible to 802.11n. You need to get the DWA series from D-Link (I'm guessing you have a preference for D-Link). This should run your D-Link DIR-825 at 100mbps +.

My d-link WUA-2340 is only running on 54mbps

What router are you using?
Most routers sold until recently have been 802.11b/g (54mbps) routers, it must be 802.11b/g/n to run at 108mbps.
The adapter will self adjust to the older standard if it cannot detect if the faster standard is available.

I need to boost the sending signal from my D-Link wireless router so my secondary computer can access the net - presently the router works for one extra computer but keeps losing the signal intermittently...

goto start - run - .cmd - enter..type`ll get ip address,subnet mask,default gateway.copy it.goto start- control panel - network connections now right click wireless network connection and click on properties and double click on internet protocol(TCP/IP) or if you are using vista goto network and sharing center - view status - properties - double click on IPv4.type in the IP address,subnet mask,default DNS server address type the default gateway in primary DNS and in secondary your connection won`t drop after this.
this will fix your problem...

100+ mbps??!!

According to your user manual pg 2 & 23 (bottom) your device only operates at 54mbps and Pre-N works at 108mbps. The factory ranges can be misleading because their tests are under optimal conditions that we as users will never have.

Just not connecting

It may be set at 108mbps and your ps2 will probably only able to cope with 54mbps, so set the adapter to 54mbps to match the ps2.
