Belkin Wireless G only connects at 11mpbs for an internal network
Running Windows Server 2003. I have 2 network cards. The main one is hard wired to my router. The other is a Belkin Wireless G PCI F5D7000. I want to set it up that all my computers connect to the Belkin to get internet connections for the laptops. I have it set to static, no default gateway. I created a SSID and am able to connect to it with the Belkin. It seems that the only way the SSID shows up is when it is set for an adhoc computer to computer setup. When the other computers connect to the Belkin they only connect at 11mpbs. The Belkin shows that it is connecting at that speed which is why the other computer connect only at 11mpbs. If I were to set it up to connect to my router and obtain IP and DNS automatically it connects at 54mpbs. Why does the Belkin only connect at 11mpbs internally? How can I get it to 54mpbs so that the other computers connection speed would be 54mpbs?

this is from the d-link support page: "Question :Why can't I get the advertised speed and performance when in Ad-Hoc mode?
This FAQ applies to 802.11b, 802.11g, and Super G™products.
D-Link wireless products follow the IEEE 802.11 standards. The802.11b and 802.11g standards specify that Ad-Hoc mode only needsto support up to 11Mbps. For best results, use an access point orwireless router and set your adapters to Infrastructure (station)mode."
hi.. it has been seen that due to some reason the wep key doesnot work... u can try changing the key type to WPA instead of WEP... go to the router page and change the security type to WPA instead of WEP.. 1 more thing in vista you can use the windows utility only...how come is it possible that you are using the card utility as well..i suggest you to disable the card utility and just use the windows default utility.. vedhick.....let me know if u need steps to change the security type to WPA..
hopefully you have'nt give the pc the same ip address as the other as it won't connect.
You will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your wireless network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.
Open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked or the option greyed out, close I.E. then open up again, click refresh and it should connect.
