Question about Linksys EtherFast EZXS55W 5x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch
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.
