      Re: Wireless speed?

      Hello man,

      54Mbps is just the speed of the connection from the wireless adapter to the router ,
      Wireless speeds are - 11Mbps to 300Mpbs on the new wireless N range ,
      But sky dont offer wireless N

      If you log in to the router :
      Code:
      http://192.168.0.1
      Code:
      User name : admin
      Code:
      Password : sky
      In here you will see you line speeds under Downstream / Upstream,
      Also you will get router stats like noise margins Ect can come in handy if you ask for help to post thses stats also ,

      Now the speed you see in the router is only your " sync " or " access " speed ,
      The speed you get is classed as throughput and you will need to run speed tests to check this ,
      Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test How ever these site are not 100% right .

      Regards
      Steven
