Question about Belkin N Wireless Modem-Router F5D8633au4A
How do I increase my wireless speed? My Belkin N wireless router is only sending out a signal of 54mbps. Or my networked pcs are only utilizing 54mbps. How do I increse that?
The reasons you only get 54mbps could be: one, your networked PCs don't support N-mode and broadcast in G-mode, so that the router falls back to 54mbps.
Two, the signal strength is too low or the radio noise level is too high to allow N-mode operation at full speed.
So, after checking with the manuals and vendor brochures, you should try connecting the router with a single PC close by - say, ten feet in the same room - and check connection speed. If you can connect at 108 or 125 depending on which N mode you have (N, N+, N1...), the problem is likely to be distance, walls or noisy equipment.
If you still can't connect, double-check the configuration of both router and PC (wifi board "Advanced Properties" in Hardware Management) to check whether N mode is enabled at BOTH ends, especially "Wireless Mode" in the PC.
If it still doesn't work, I'd test it with a Belkin N USB key, for example, just to check that when router and client vendors say, "802.11N", they do indeed refer to the same thing. That's not so cut and dried a thing as one would expect. The N-mode standard was not completely defined from the start, so that many vendors jumped the gun and implemented their own "N-modes" which are often NOT compatible with each other. If you had a US Robotics router and a Yuwasa (and outdated SparkLANs, IIRC) wifi board, you'd discover that you could only attain 11 mbps - and if the USR router was set for "G only" or "G and N" instead of "B, G and N", you would get no connection at all.

You can go into the router setting by http://192.168.1.1/in the address bar.got to wireless settings>>advanced settings.Then enable n type wireless protocol setting for maximum speed.Normally the best wireless protocol is automatically selected by the router.Most probably the wireless card in your system only allows a maximum speed of 54mbps.that is it works on a/g wireless protocol
