      Wireless speed problem

      I'm using the Sky router which is supposed to be 108 Mbps with a Netgear
      WG311T also 108 Mbps. I have the router set to 108 Auto but the connection
      speed never exceeds 54 Mbps.
      Any ideas please?

      Thanks

      Wireless 108Mbps technology is pretty flaky!

      It uses dual band techniques (hence the channel 6 limitation) and relies on a very good signal strength to operate.

      Maybe there's too much interference in your home (e.g. dect phones), or the signal is struggling to travel through walls, floors etc. or there is another wireless network in the vicinity?

      Otherwise maybe this (found on Google groups)?

      "Are you using the Netgear wireless config. utility or Windows Wireless Zero configuration? If you're using the Netgear Utility, you must place a checkmark in the box next to 108 AND 54MB in order to achieve the 108 mb speed. Checking only the box next to 108 will not suffice."

      Thanks Saturday

      That makes sense!
      I use the Netgear configurator and all the boxes are ticked so I guess it's down to interference.
