Question about NetGear N300 Wireless Router
I have a 100 Mbps internet connection but when I run through my wireless router (Netgear N300) it says 54 Mbps. I ran a speed test without the router and I was hitting approx 47 Mbps download and 67 upload. When I tested again through the wireless router i got 9.25 Mbps download and 10.7 Mbps upload. What would cause that to happen? Can I fix it. I do have an older laptop (6 year)running Win XP. Thanks.

The router limits the data speed to the wireless reception.
802.11 G speed (maximum) is 54Mbps.

With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.

Only real trouble shooting I can suggest is power cycle the modem and router. If you have the Comcast Digital Voice modem make sure you push the reset button on the back as there is a battery in the unit and unplugging won't do anything.

theres a million things that can interfer with wireless...tin...cell phones, cordless phones and the like..but 11mbps is still really fast and chances are, your internet connection isnt even half that so your speed on the net shouldnt be effected...1mbps is usualy enough to load any website in seconds.
if your PC is slow, not jsut on the internet but in general (starting up, running apps) then its an issue with the pc and not the wireless.
but as a heads up, not trying to be mean, but netgear and belkin are cheap equipment.

check if you have wireless WPA key enable, change in every 15 days the password, normaly you have open connection to all neighbours who like to use your internet connection. and you pay the bill.
