Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
You know how you get a boost of speed if you use the same brand of wireless network adapter as the brand of router? Well my question is, can you confuse the router into thinking that I have a linksys wirless network adapter so that I can get an extra burst of speed. My router is linksys. My wireless network adapter is a generic one so it doesn't really have a name but I think its called---EDUP?? Anyway I have researched this very little but something tells me its not possible. Thanks I will rate you good, everyone put as many comments as you can. Please don't put garbage.
Well - at least to my knowledge (and I will be more than happy to be convinced otherwise), it is not possible to tweak another adapter into the so-called "Super-G" mode.
Super G gets part of its speed increase from "bonding" data from two non-overlapping wireless channels together (normal Wi-Fi uses only 1 out of the 11 channels in the 2.4-GHz range). This channel bonding, though, increases the potential for troublesome interference with microwave ovens, with cell phones and with other Wi-Fi networks. If your wireless adapter can't physically handle channel bonding, ther is no way of "tricking" the router into bursting the speed.
The only reason I see to use Super-G is to transfer large files from one computer to another wirelessly or to stream high-quality multimedia files.
If your ISP download is 30Mbps and your router transfers with 54Mbps on "normal" 802.11g - what's the deal?
However, the fact remains that real Wi-Fi speeds, measured in terms of file transfers, are always slower than the claimed data rate. Headers, handshakes and other overhead take up a substantial amount of the available bandwidth and lead to degration. Compare the real file transfer speeds I once measured within each class:
So - what do you think? - Let me know!
PS: Finally an interesting question - Thanks. (Not the "forgot my password - can you help?..." stuff.)

It's true that using router and adapter of the same brand will give you maximum performance. And YES, you can confuse both router and adapter. No matter whats brand, you can boost your adapter performance by changing its link speed or duplex to 100M/Full Duplex. This will gives you maximum performance then Auto Function of the Duplex.
Logically its NOT True but Practically I have done it many time.
