You don't talk about the laptop you're using or the type of wireless card it has... It can be several issues including the wireless capabilities of your laptop, the need for a firmware upgrade on your router and tweaking the wireless settings. I would go to the Linksys forums http://forums.linksysbycisco.com/linksys/board?board.id=Wireless_Routers and post your issue with as much detail about your laptop and current router settings as possible. The users on this forum can definitely help you.

Annoying Wireless network connection problems!


Try changing the channel number in the router for the Wi FI add 3 to the minimum channel number.
It is possible you have a neighbour with wi fi and by adding three to the channel number you give some space separation to allow more bandwidth on the WI FI channel.
when this slow down occurs ping the router address (default gateway ip) and see if ping is quick. This will eliminate WI FI as slow point. Try using tracert instead of ping to see if bottlenecks occur in network or internet.

NetGear wireless router WGR614 v6 runs with speed 1 0 mbps instead of 54 mbps


how far away are you from your wireless router when your getting 10 mbps?
Please note that wireless will not guarantee speeds of 54 mbps.
It will dramatically decrease the farther away you or how much interference there is between your laptop and router.
Also check if your wireless router is set to 802.11 G mode. if you have any devices that only support 802.11B you will only get speeds up to 11mbps compared to G at 54mbps

Go to pc world or wherever and buy a belkin wireless range extender, then install it somewhere in the middle. They are easy to set up, follow the instructions and they work every time. Watch out for thick brick walls or anything metal, that will interfere with signals.

Wireless just stopped working. Changed batteries,


The behavior described indicates weak/dead batteries. Logitech brags about the battery life on this model, but in reality battery life varys dramatically between invidual units. I've seen one that would not operate at all on Ni-Cad rechargable batteries (only 1.2 volts even at full charge). If you must use rechargeables, stick with NiMH (metal hydride). Better yet, use long life lithium.

Also, make sure the "Nano" receiver isn't sitting in the storage bin. This is one of two ways to power off the mouse. The other is the 'Clip N Go' dock.

No super g, no turbo


Super G is if you have a Super G card or speed boost is what they call it. You have to have a Speed bust wireless card for this feature to work. You should just upgrade to wilress N you be glad you did and it will be much cheaper in the long run.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
