      I am not sure why this is happening, I can't recall it being reported on the forum before. Can you check in the router wireless settings that you wireless is set to 'g only'. If it is set to 'b & g' that may account for it, but I don't see why.

      Maybe someone else can offer an explanation?

      Re: Increase my Upload Speed?

      My wireless router was set to "g & b" so I changed it to "g only". The Max Rate on inssider has now gone down to 11. I also checked the Wireless Network Connection Status and that still says Speed: 54.0 Mbps.

      So to clarify,

      Mode: g only
      inssider: Max Rate 11
      Speed: 54 Mbps

      Mode: g & b
      inssider: Max Rate 22
      Speed: 54 Mbps

      I have changed it back to g & b for now.

      Curiouser and curiouser, it looks like Inssider is seeing your router as 2x wireless 'b'. If you are seeing this reported for other Sky networks in your area, then it may be your installation of Inssider that is corrupted. Try uninstalling it and download and install a fresh copy.

      Still hoping someone will have an idea what is going on?

      I have reinstalled Inssider but it made no difference.

      There are currently 3 Sky routers on Inssider, here is how they compare.

      Mine is the top one (SKY21200).

      Re: Increase my Upload Speed?

      I have just had a quick search on the MetaGeek forums and found the thread below. It seems rhodo has had similar issues to me.

      - Where does the "max rate" come from?

      Like rhodo I too have a Dell Inspiron (mine's a i6400) and an Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG adapter.

      Do not put any more time into this Isitme, I am hoping to get a new laptop in the next few weeks so hopefully this will no longer be an issue.

      Thanks again, I really do appreciate all your help.

      That's a good find. It is more than likely that there is some compatibility issues between the 3945 adapter and Inssider. Nothing to worry about by the look of it.
