      certainly appears to an issue with the wireless, unfortunatly sky wont be able to support or offer any advice, but heh thats why we come on here.

      Do you have the latest drivers for the cards etc. are you using windows to manage the connections or the software that came with your cards?

      what security are you using and have you tried changing the wireless channel.

      post up some of those and if no one else has any ideas al post back tomorrow when I get back from work.

      Disable the wirless security (ONLY AS A VERY TEMPORARY MEASURE)

      Change the name of your SSID to some thing memorable.

      Search for your wireless network again.

      Once you have found your network log on to it.

      Look at your connection speed, if it has improved.

      Change the SSID back to what you want it to be a, repeat the process.

      You then MUST apply your security settings, try WEP 128 bit encryption first.

      you are allways going to get slower speeds on wireless compared to LAN.

      whats the wireless signal strenth like? how far away from the router are you? there are many factors invloved in wirelss, different types of walls have different effects on the signal.
