    I have an 54g AP (the SMC 7804 WBRB). Works great.
    I have an ALDI pc with wireless, it shows a connection at
    54 Mbps. Works great.

    I have a laptop with Belkin adapter plugged in
    sold to me as a 54g, but i have never seen it working on
    that speed. It is always at 11 Mbps.

    How do I change that?

    Anyone having the same experience ???
    ----------------
    Also, under XP, SP2 Microsoft now says:
    "Limited connection or no connection" for the wireless,
    while there is a strong (green) signal!

    "Repair" takes a long time and never does anything usefull.
    Restart helps and solves this. Is there a quicker way?

    thanks for tips

    I have a PC a floor below with a 802.11g Wireless Desktop Network Card
    F5D7000df which I'm using for Internet and in a local network together
    with 11b equipment.
    I know you can choose between several speed options in the Windows
    network configuration of the device.
    Maybe "802.11b mode" or similar has been selected.

    I know what you mean. I have checked that, it's on 54g mode.
    Thanks

    I forgot to mention that distance is not an issue.
    When the laptop is next to the AP I still have the same problem.
