      Slow Wireless Speeds? Read this!

      Got a 2nd pc which i want to locate in a spare room, for some quiet overnight downloading. Bought a KCORP LIFESTYLE 54MBPS WIRELESS "PCI" CARD to do the job. Just tested it very near the sky router (no more than 30cm's apart), which gives an 'excellent' full bars signal (as expected), BUT the difference in download speed between ethernet and wireless, is half the speed on wireless. I want to max out my (albiet capped) connection with the wireless signal, same as i can do wired (850k/s), so would a 108mbps wireless card mostl likely achieve this, or would i be wasting my money, same as i've just done with the 54g?.

      cheers

      joe

      you are a star BB_user - it worked for me too - getting the same as through the cable now

      THis program should be bundled with all wireless cards, and a nice fat royalty paid to the developer imo.

      hi i tried this tweak program and i thing i'm surfing slower!!
      how do i revert back to my previous settings before the tweak. i used only the automated apply buttons but set my download speed to 16000 as i believe that is what sky max advertise??
      also, if i 've applied this tweak on 1 computer in my wireless network will it have affected the other computers that connect wirelessly??
      many thanks.

      I LOVE YOU

      Before- 3300kbps

      Now-

      I just loaded up that software and auto-optimised for 12000kbps (this is the max I should be able to get for my line attenuation, wireless doesn't go much faster than that in true data throughput terms anyway).

      Is there any way to make this software more prominent? EVERYONE should make it their first port of call in my opinion.

      I seriously cannot believe Windows is so badly optimised by default.

      Inprocomm IPN2220 internal wireless by the way.
