54mbps is what the Belkin routers wireless signal transmits at! This cannot be altered and is working correctly regardless of other wireless card speeds.

    Just re-read your problem. 54mbps is usually standard, however you are saying manual says up to 108mpbs. Have you checked the routers settings?

        If i have a belkin pre-n router (# F5D8230-4) will i be able to connect with a "G" 2.0 adapter or should i get a "N" adapter. When I told the guys at my local retail, they did not know what a "pre-n"...

        Because the routers are pre-N they will support B-N because n isnt standard and is still a little touchy. you will be fine. but the downside, you arent getting the true N speed because your comp is running G, if you could elaborate on your computer a bit more im sure we could find an N internal card to replace the G stock. let us know

        Is belkin router f5d8230-4 a g or n? i need tyhis

        It is a PRE-N router, which means:

        When you see a “pre-n” product, it is one designed based on the future “n.”
        standard, but is not a standard. It will generally only work with that companies devices, which means if you buy brand XYZ’s wireless router, you will also need to buy brand XYZ’s wireless networking adapters for all of your computers.
        Interoperability between pre-n and non pre-n devices can be difficult and even if you get it to work, you don’t gain anything unless everything is pre-n.

        No, you're not safe.
        Disconnect your router from your cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
        Reset your router to "factory settings", which _are_ safe.

        Connection between wifi radio and Belkin pre-N router

        To reset your router to factory settings ther should be a reset switch on the back you will need to use a paper clip to do. Hold in for about 15 sec to reset.

        Sounds like you have customized the router a bit so I would copy your current settings for your network unless you don't have much then I would just start over.

        Belkin Pre-N Wifi - Speed problem


        When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.

        Belkin Pre-n wireless router

        Check your device to see if it is due for a firmware upgrade. Esp. depending on your ISP, log into your device that you have from your ISP ( whether dsl modem, cable modem, etc.) and then follow whatever procedure it needs to determine your current firmware version.
