Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
I'm using a Trendnet PCMCIA 54mbps card and a Netgear WGR614v1.1 router. How can I make it go up to 54mbps. The bandwidth always scales down to 24mbps even when the laptop is right beside the router.
Hi, A couple of things you can try: 1. Remove any security setting (WEP, WPA, MAC Filters). Disable any data encryption, set authentication to open; 2. Try other USB ports of your PC or verify that you have USB 2.0; 3. In your laptop if using XP, Control Panel, Network Connections, right click on Wireless Network Connection, Properties, in the General tab, click on Configure, Advanced, look for any auto selection of speed and replace it with manual or set to G or 54mbps, disable Power Save, fiddle with the different settings. it may be to your advantage to log down the original settings prior to modifications. 4. You have to play it by ear which combination will work out for you. In some instances, setting to a fix Channel (as in your AP/Router) also improves speed/quality. 5. If #1 makes you uncomfortable, perhaps at least using the MAC filter would give some semblance of security. 6. You likewise have to check if there are similar settings in your AP/Router as in #3. Hope this be of some idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you require further information. Good luck and kind regards.

First Contact your Internet Srevice Provider and ask them your same question. They may have some System Maintenance going on.
