It appears you are using a 802.11b WI-FI card (either at the PC or the Access Point side). If the card is a 802.11g instead, check out the settings to verify 802.11g is enabled. Regards.

    802.11b is a standard that can reach a (theoretical) maximum of 11 Mbps, whereas 802.11a could actually reach 54 Mbps (working at higher frequencies). Apparently your software could support both standards, but if the 802.11a is permanently disabled, it could mean your mini-PCI adapter only supports the slower 802.11b. I would advise to buy a USB-WiFi adapter, which is not much expensive and would give you the speed of the 802.11a or, better yet, the more recent 802.11g standard, that is 54 Mbps. Take care.

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

Will it work with a wireless g router ?

The Play Adapter offers both 2.4GHz and 5GHz band operation, and it is backward compatible with 802.11a/g devices at 54Mbps as well as 802.11b products at 11Mbps.

Do I have a choice to run this on N or G? If so, how do I change the setting?

No,those aren't options for you,unfortunately you're stuck with 802.11b.It's the narrowest,or slowest,broadband wireless connection that you can get at 11Mbps. The 11g can at times attain 54Mbps and 11n connections up to 300Mbps.
As technology keeps getting faster and cheaper,the more recent cards and routers are showing up at places like for discount prices.
Don't get me wrong,what you have will work,but I don't know if you'll be satisfied with your speed.
Remember,if you go looking for replacements,make sure your system meets,or better yet exceeds the min. requirements,and that your Op. System will support the hardware.
If this helps,would you please rate my post?

The wireless network is very slow compared to when I connect to one of the RJ45 ports in the back of the router. Every wireless connection I try crawls in speed. I have Wireless -G USB adapter in one...

Makesure your computer is not too far away from your wireless router andyou have a good signal. By placing your mouse pointer over the wirelessconnection icon, located in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, you cancheck to see if your signal strength is good. Anything less than a good signalcan cause intermittent connections.
SOLUTION:You will need to relocate your wireless router closer to your computer.

Ethernet works wirelss is very slow

Most of the wireless adapters connect at a speed of 54mbps max, while wired lan connection adaptors (LAN adapter/cable) works at max of 100/1000mbps. hence use a cable to connect the PC to make it faster than using wireless.

Chng internal wireless adapter from 11Mbps to 54 Mbps

The 802.11 protocol is for wireless adapters. If your is 11MBs, it is a b card. Buy a g or n card to achieve the 54 MBs you want. Be sure to uninstall the b card and software before you install the new card.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Wireless b router

The only difference is that Wireless B is older and only hits 11Mbps. Wireless G is a step above, it is backward compatible, and supports up to 54Mbps.

If you are looking for more than that try wireless N.
