      another slow wireless download speed thread

      I have the V2 neatgear DG934G router and my wireless download rate is poor.

      I find on initial boot up of my Win7 laptop the download speeds of large files is okish at approx 120kbps. I get on average 170kbps wired. BB connection speed is reported at 1530kbps with line attenuation at 59db.

      As time progresses, the wireless speeds drop, often as low as 2kbps (two kbps). I've tried changing the wifi channel. I've tried TCPOptimizerm (sic) but nothing is preventing the eventual drop to 2kbps.

      Could this be a faulty router?

      If I switch wireless off/on then it goes back up to the 120kbps. All drivers are as up to date as I can get.

      Any help appreciated.

      Thanks.

      Re: another slow wireless download speed thread

      Looks like a Windows7 problem. Using XP from my other laptops and download speed is sustained. Any pointers on wi-fi on Win7 set-up? Google is throwing up a few things but not much.

      I connect wirelessly at 54Mb and full strength. Is there a way to see the signal quality or actual throughput speeds?

      As you can guess, I'm not much of a Windows person.
