Since wireless networking uses radio frequencies to communicate between your computers and networks, the maximum distance that 802.11b can operate depends on environmental factors that will affect your network: 802.11b Typical Outdoor Coverage Area 802.11b Typical Indoor Coverage Area 590' 11Mbps 50' 11Mbps 984' 5.5Mbps 125' 5.5Mbps 1476' 2Mbps 150' 2Mbps 1800' 1Mbps 200' 1Mbps

Quick question. If i have two different wireless adapters , one at 54 and another at 150. Does the wireless run at the lowest speed? or is it just the device that connect to the wireless adapter? . i was...

Wireless adapter could run at the given speed(54, 150, but what matters here is the speed that are data(internet) provided to this adapters.

If your provider provides you Internet at 18, the maximum speed you can get from those adapters is 18.

If you have another device providing connection for the adapters, so the adapters will run at the device's speed as a maximum.

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

How to connect two speedtouch modems wirelessly ?

  • Hi you need a wireless router to do this,
    PICK A ROUTER - There are tons of wireless routers to choose from. Depending on how big your house or office you might have to purchase multiple routers. The current standard in wireless technology is known as Wireless G. It is rated at a maximum speed of 54Mbps with a radius range of approximately 75'. This is most suitable for small homes or offices. Other types include Wireless A, B, and N and all vary in bandwidth and range. Do some more research and find out what might be suitable for your needs.
  • Step 2PICK A WIRELESS NETWORK CARD - If you set up a wireless network make sure to get wireless networking cards for each desktop, otherwise there'll be no way for you to connect to the internet. Most laptops have wireless networking cards built in, check your laptops manual to make sure.

    I just installed d-link wbr-1310. I am getting 1/4 the speed using wireless. Are there any setting I change to resolve this.

    Wireless connections are running on a slower speed by definition.

    A wired connection with this router sets the maximum speed at 100 Mbps.

    A wireless signal in a 802.11b network has a maximum speed of 11 Mbps, and a 802.11g network has a maximum speed of 54 Mbps.

    These numbers are theoretical numbers and never achieved in reality. (like a Toyota Prius makes 60mpg...)

    So depending on your wireless network adapter and how your setup physically looks like (distance to the router, interference with telephones, microwaves etc.) it is absolutely possible that you wireless speed is considerably slower than your wired connection.

    If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

    Loss of speed with wireless

    Wireless conection will only run as fast as your slowest device. i.e.
    802.11 only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps.
    802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps.
    802.11g supports bandwidth up to 54 Mbps.
    802.11n connections should support data rates of over 100 Mbps.

    So if you are running a mixed network with lets say a 802.11b wifi card on a laptop and a new laptop with 802.11n, your speed will only be that of the 802.11b card.

    I hope that helps.

    Slow speed tests

    Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.

    What does the speed refer in wireless G 54-Mbps

    It's maximum throughput of wireless network.
