      Re: Download Speeds - Wireless

      Well, the answer's fairly obvious isn't it - you have a lousy wireless connection

      Most probably this is being caused by a low wireless signal. You may be able to improve things with one or more of the following:
      • change wireless channel
      • try auto108
      • change the router position (even a few inches can help -keep it off the floor)
      • change the aerial orientation a little
      • move the router away from anything metal or electric (especially dect/cordless phones)

      However, wireless will never (easily) give you the speed of wired.

      Your router is connecting at the appropriate speed for your attenuation.

      With regard to your wired speeds your download speed is too low as a percentage of your connection speed (should be ~85%). Try changing your TCP/IP settings (see second sticky at the bottom of this post).
