      Netgear DG834GT fast internet slow wireless

      Hi all,

      As the title suggests getting horrendous speeds from wireless connection regardless of how close to the router I am, but when I wire it up it is working fine these are my router stats;

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 19999 kbps 1026 kbps
      Line Attenuation 15.5 db 9.3 db
      Noise Margin 8.1 db 7.5 db

      I think there good but the speeds I am getting from my laptop less that a metre away are 0.5 mbps is there any suggestions?

      Install inSSIDer and scan your vacinity for free wireless channels and set your router to one of them.

      You may wish to reboot your Laptop.

      It may be that it will benefit from a new boot, rather than going to sleep.

      Make sure your router and your laptops card are set to 'G' mode. If that doesn't improve it ring sky and ask them to send a replacement.

      Check the manufacturers site for the latest drivers for you Laptop wireless adapter, download and install them. Do not believe Windows when it says you have the latest drivers.

      Try resetting the router using a pen to push the reset button at the back of the router. Hold it for 10ish seconds.

      You will loose any custom settings. If it doesn't work ring Sky for a replacement. You'll get it for free.

      Yeah tried this as well nothing happens, when I wire the connection from the router to my laptop for a brief time the wireless does improve but after about 5 mins it decreases down to the 0.5 mbps so frustrating.
