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

Im sorry but you will never get 54 on your card toughs are theoretical maximum speeds and I have never seen a system actually achieve them the actual speeds received by wireless devices are actually much lower and 11 is a normal speed wile running over wireless. Im sure this isnt what you wanted to here and I am sorry but it pretty much comes down to manufactures lieing by telling you it goes to speeds that can never be reached.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

Very slow and intermittent wireless internet connection


I seem to have solved the problem by downloading the driver from Asus directly.

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

I pulled out my Asus card, looked up the card model and downloaded the correct driver. Looks like the windows update or the Dell update must have caused the driver to get whacked. Hope this fixes your issue as well.

Extremely poor performance


It could be because this card is probably set at 108mbps as default, but your router maybe a 54mbps stream, therefore if it's possible set the card at 54mbps to see if there is any change. applogies if this is not the case, but unless it's a signal or driver fault, it may be worth trying in a different pc.

Unstable connection


This maybe because both peices of hardware are not set at the lower speed of 54mbps as super g is set at 125mbps and can cause problems with streaming. The speed has to be set the same for both, both beind 54mbps. See if this cures it.
