Anyway, you might have some luck calling Comcast and asking them for a higher-bandwidth service, but really if you're connecting to your router over a wireless channel that will be your bottleneck since the 802.11g standard for wireless networking supports a maximum bandwidth of 54 Megabits per second (Mbps).
I dont think you need the drivers for Router. And first of all you need to connect your modem to your router through ethernet cable. And after connecting your modem, configure your wireless router by typing this IP address in internet explorer: 192.168.1.1 The user id is admin and the password is password. Then detect your broadband connection by using the option in the router. Try connecting your Laptop to wifi after setting the connection.
The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.
There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000
Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40
It sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's wireless adapters an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser normally by typing 192.168.2.1 and check that DHCP is enabled and look in the menus and see if the transfer speed is set correctly at 54 mbps, the same as your wireless adapters.
Also go to your wireless network adapters in network connections in control panel, right click on your wireless connection icon and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok it and close window.
The problem with 'pre n' routers is that this setup was released before the alloted 'N' type transfer speeds and required firmware, hence named 'pre n' and can be quite troublesome at times.
If you go through the above proceedure they should all connect, but you must also check in my computer, right click then click properties and look at the computer name tab and check that all the pc's are set at the same workgroup name, normally 'workgroup' or 'mshome', otherwise each pc will not be able to see each other.
If you are connecting wirelessly, then it's more than likely that your wireless card or usb dongle cannot connect as you router is probably set at 108 mbps.
Your receivers are more than likely only capable of connecting at 54 mbps so change the streaming rate on your router to 54 mbps.
This will not alter your internet connection speed as the 108 mbps only refers to the rate of streaming speed on your local area connection (from one pc to another)
The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet.
These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps.
If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps.
Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.
