    Im on the NTL 10mb package in the UK and when i use my internet
    connection via the wired LAN ports on my router i get a steady 1mb/sec.
    When i use wireless i get anything from 500kb/s - 700kb/s max. I've
    tried 3 different routers, 3 different wireless adapters so I don't
    think it's a HW issue. Have also tried every channel from 1 -11. No
    joy. Current setup is Linksys WRT54GS and onboard intel wireless pro
    2200BG. Signal and strength are showing as excellent, speed showing as
    54mbps. Any ideas welcome !!

  3. Hello , Internet service : DSL? Dial up ? Satelite ? Cable ? How far away
    from router is the PC when wireless ? Are there cordless phones in the home
    or office ? Is the SSID Broadcast enabled ?
