    I have three XP computers connected in a home network to a Linksys WRT54GS
    router through Linksys WUSB54G (ver 4) wireless adaptors. For each computer
    I downloaded the same 60 MB file from Garmin.com and got very different
    download speeds.

    Computer 1, a 2.6 GHz clone with an Intel mobo usually connected to the
    router at 48 to 54 mbps, downloaded at 755 kB/sec.

    Computer 2, a Dell 2.4 GHz 4600 desktop usually connected to the router
    between 24 to 54 mbps, downloaded at 75 kB/sec.

    Computer 3, a Dell 3.4 GHz 4700 desktop usually connected to the router
    between 18 to 54 mbps, downloaded at 37 kB/sec

    While Computer 1 seems to often have a better connection to the router,
    would this alone explain the faster download speed? If not, what might I do
    to speed up the two Dells?
