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 If you had a US Robotics router and a Yuwasa (and outdated SparkLANs, IIRC) wifi board, you'd discover that you could only attain 11 mbps - and if the USR router was set for "G only" or "G and N" instead of "B, G and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

TM-G5240 router is slow


Is it the wireless device or your ISP? Location the same on wireless device? Computer same place? Channel the same? Antenna the same? Cables the same? You will never get what is advertised. That would under perfect conditions and the Max it will work. Figure the miles of cables and equipment between you and the ISP and all the places it could degrade a signal. Try a High location for the device, change channels.

Belkin Router Signal Weak


Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.

Belkin g+wireless mimo router


make sure your router is set at the correct transfer speed eg 54MBPS as your pc may only have a wireless adapter that supports 54MBPS as some run at 108MBPS. You may also need to check that the routers DHCP setting is enabled so as to give your pc an automatic ip address and also check your wireless adapter or card properties and on the TCP/IP line click properties again select obtain ip address automatically.

WIRELESS ROUTER


If you mean by the roadrunner that you are connect via a cable, the reason why the signal may fail and stop you from watching streamed video is that wireless is only 54mbps and not the best speed for streaming, but wired streams at 100mbps and is constant speed whereas wireless doesnt give a constant true speed of 54mbps it can reduce considerably.
