Question about NetGear WG311 (0060449028409) Wireless Adapter

54 mbps PCI Adapter Card limits my connection to 2 mbps

I got a desktop connected by wire, and a PS3, Xbox 360, 1 desktop and 1 laptop connected by wi-fi. I'm using a 54 mbps router. My actual connection speed is 10 mbps (I can download at 1.3 mb/s).

I've installed a PCI Network Adapter to my desktop, WG311v3. I've updated the drivers. Somehow I can only recieve 2 mbps of bandwith, even with the router right next to my desktop. I've tried differenct channels (1, 6 and 11), and I've tried different security keys (WPA and WEP). My laptop recieves 54 mbps of bandwith on the same connection, and all of my other devices work properly.

Is there any way to fix this problem and get the desktop to recieve a bandwith of 54 mbps?

Wi if is the slowest form of connection and is shared with other devices. If you want good bandwidth you need to connect via ethernet cable directly to the router.
Examlpe... wi if 4 meg shared, Ethernet 100 meg..
good luck !

SOURCE: Wireless not working from netgear wg311 to a new bt homehub2

Hi Backatya,

Check what kind of security you upgraded BThomehub 2 uses. Since the hub supports more security-types then your adapter does, I suspect an incompatibility there.

You can solve it by connecting through cable and changing security to WEP or WPA (not WPA2).

I am only getting 34-54 Mbps with my Linksys. I have a wireless adapter in my computer. It will go lower, but never than higher than 54 Mbps? I know i can get 100mbps because my Xbox does. Help me out!


Wireless Ethernet (802.11a or b or g) does not get the bandwidth you would get through a cabled connection. My guess is that you have an 802.11g network card in your computer and 54 Mbps is the top theoretical speed for that type of Wireless adapter. Cabled connections will give you the theoretical throughput of 100 Mbps. Also, since this Linksys device is not a Wireless access point but simply a switch, your computer doesn't actually connect to it. Most likely you are connecting to your cable or DSL modem. Most of these have a wireless radio built in.

100mbps on my house computer but only 54 on my laptop


100mbps is just the maximum speed capacity that can be used and depends on the speed that you subscribed so it doesn't mean you'll get a sharp 100 mbps on that.

Limited or no connectivity


When your computer does not get IP address from the router, you get the message " limited or no connectivity ". There might be 2 possible reasons for this . 1) If your wireless network is secured then you are not entering the correct network key. Open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings of the router .
2 ) Your router is giving the IP address to the rotuer.
Open the set up page of the router and check , the DHCP server is enabled or not ? It should be enabled.

You are entering the corerct network key and DHCP server is enabled, but still getting the same message. Assign a static IP address to the computer.

X Box 360 can't connect in hotel room!


I figured it out! I am also in a hotel room with only ethernet...and can connect to the network but not to the internet. When I got onto the internet for the first time on my laptop, there was a hotel internet webpage that came up immediately. You have to click CONNECT for 24hrs; 48; 1 week etc. unfortunately for us, Xbox doesn't have a internet browser like the PS3 does. So we can not click CONNECT when we are attempting to connect on the 360. The only reason why I know this is correct is because my friend brought his PS3 to my hotel room and that hotel connect window popped up and immediately we were playing Modern Warfare 2 with "full bars"...Xbox should really add a download for a browser! Like 360 way more. Sorry guys!
