      Wireless IS crap!

      i'm having a simular problem with speed and i think the wireless is the problem. IE was too slow to display summary pages so i have just the test results - as you can see on Lan i get about 800kbps more than on wireless.

      although i am thinking of just cancelling this as the ping is teriible - even on FAST so gaming is not going to happen which is my biggest past time.

      Re: Wireless IS crap!

      although in all fairness i watched dumeter during this test and at onepoint i did hit 744k/sec so i fee this is my fastest i will get ( which is fine) a small notcable thing is that my distance seems to have halved - it says i am under 50 miles from londonk, yesterday it was under 100 yet i am actually around 124 miles to london.



      A MS download got me a solid 520 a second
