Question about NetGear WG311 (0060449028409) Wireless Adapter
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 !

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).
