      Wireless latency - Netgear 834 vs 934

      I currently have a Netgear 834 (std sky issue) and since upgrading my package to MID have found that I can only obtain 2meg via the wireless (4meg wired). When using the wireless I am about 2mts from the router.

      I have carried out TCP optimizer and this does increase the wireless speed to 3.1meg which is fine.

      However I have been recently issued a Netgear 934 (from Sky) and wanted to know if this is likely to perform better (wirelessly) than my old 834 unit. E.g. is the high latency normal for wireless and is this why you always have slower speeds with wireless and are some routers better than others? Also are the any other pros and cons to using one or the other.

      Well the latency of the wireless signal will always be higher. I believe the Netgear V2 was a little better, but the effects can only be marginal unless there is another factor.
