    I recently purchased an Acer Travelmate 2480 notebook computer which came with a Broadcom 802.11g wireless card built in.

    I am running a wireless home network using a D-link DI-524 router. I have two desktop pc's, with wireless connectivity, achieving download speeds near the 3Mb advertised rate of my isp ( Verizon ). One has D-Link adapter card and the other Linksys card. When I test the download speed on my Acer notebook via the Broadcom card I'm only getting in the neighborhood of 400-600kbs. Believe it or not, my upload speed is actually higher, closer to 700kbs. I achieve the correct speeds when I hard-wire the unit directly to my router.

    I contacted support for Acer and they had no clue and suggested I post such this on a forum for outside assistance.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    AndyG
