Question about Belkin (F5D7000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
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 via the wireless card and am able to connect to it with the Belkin (setup for On Demand connection). 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?
It was recommended that I need to increase the frequency in the wifi router settings. How do you do this? Do you increase it in the router itself? It doesn't make sense. The router is set up for wireless b/g. This wireless card is not connected the router. It is setup so that other computers can connect to this card where they will get their IP address. The server is hardwired to the router with another network card. Basically the server is going to provide the IP address and the internet access. However my laptops can only connect at 11mpbs. Don't know why.
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."
