Re: [Internet] Fiber-op very slow on wireless Windows 7

said by flyerdx:

I have Bell fiber-op 50\30
here is what I get
Wired Desktop 50/32 windows Vista
Wireless Desktop 20/13 windows xp Trendnet 150 wireless n adapter
Wireless Laptop 4/3 windows 7 rtl8187B wireless g and even slower with trendnet 150 wireless n adapter
I have rebooted everything with no luck
tried changing a few settings from stuff I have read. it is only connecting at 18.0 mbs and not the 54 it should be.
Any ideas what to try. I think it the laptop for sure cause everything else seems to work fine. Most of the time I'm only getting speed lower than 1mb. Can't stream nothing. But yet Netflix works flawless through my Wii

Have to ensured that the drivers for your wireless devices are up to date?

Also, are you testing to the slowest machines with no other machines running at the same time?



USB adapters don't fair very well when it comes to speed vs having an addon card with antenna.

Walls and stuff will deteriorate your signal so because it says it's 54g doesn't mean it will connect at that
