Conection speed issue

Hi, i have wireless broadband at home that should run at 54mbps, from both the router and my internal wireless card. this is in a PC desktop, not a laptop.
i have had 2 wireless cards and 1 usb card. i am not very technical, but to me this appears like it is my computer rather than network cards, or settings within my computer. i have used my father's laptop from my desk and it conects at 54mbps every time.

but my computer runs at 18mbps at the most and it usually fluctuates between 5mbps and 1mbps.

the wireless router is a BT homehub, and is only 10 metres away with only one wall in between them.

also i have had this problem in two different homes from two different routers.

i think i have narrowed this down enough to conclude it is my computer. but would apreciate any advice on how to correct this, as i have tried purchasing new cards and that hasnt helped. also i cannt afford to just go out and buy a new pc.

i look forward to hearing any advice.
thanks
Tim

please note. the selected product may not nescesaraly be the correct device ni my machine. i may be wrong.

You might need to isolate your problem properly. How long have you had your wireless card for your desktop? Did you remember updating the driver of it? Do still have the cd that came with it? Is is possible to install the problem card into another pc and check if it works with the pc or still the same problem. Above all the suggestions it is best to check the driver of your adapter and try updating it.

    go to device manager (right click my computer)-properties-hardware-device manager-network adapters. You will see there the wireless adapter your using.Right click-properties-driver.You will see the driver version and driver date. Ask your wireless card manufacturer if there are updates for that driver version.

My network card is only allowing 54mbps , I have 1.5gig dsl with a 300mbps router Do i need a new network card the driver is updated to last update


Your wireless network card is more than sufficient to handle the bandwidth provided by your DSL connection. A "1.5" DSL connection refers to a 1.5Mbps DSL line. Your network card is an 802.11G network card. Simply put, your network card will only run at a maximum of 54Mbps, far short of your 802.11N router's maximum speed, but provides more than enough room for the bandwidth provided by your Internet Service Provider. Gigabit connections (connections with speeds measured in 'Gbps') are almost exclusively for private networks or corporate networks with Fiber Optic connections.

In layman's terms, you can get a newer network card for your computer that will improve the speeds between your laptop and any other computers on your network, but as long as your network card is supported by any modern operating system, odds are it is able to transfer data fast enough to keep up with your DSL connection

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


Hi
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 overstock.com 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?
Thanks
Bob

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.

Belkin g+wireless mimo router


make sure your router is set at the correct transfer speed eg 54MBPS as your pc may only have a wireless adapter that supports 54MBPS as some run at 108MBPS. You may also need to check that the routers DHCP setting is enabled so as to give your pc an automatic ip address and also check your wireless adapter or card properties and on the TCP/IP line click properties again select obtain ip address automatically.
