      my wireless speeds are much slower than wired

      hey guys, using the netgear router on bb max, when i connect wired my speed test reading shows an average of 14.5mbps, but when i go wireless i get 3.4mbps. i used a few speed test sites but i got the results here from DSLConnect UK - Speedtest. Im using a cable and wireless 54mbps usb wireless adaptor on WPA encryption. My signal stengh and quality show anywhere from 95 to 100%. Im just wondering why my wireless speeds are much slower, i was expecting them to be about 9mbps wireless. Im interested if any of you are getting fast speeds on ur wireless adaptor and maybe u could suggest a wireless adaptor that gives u better speeds. any advice is much appreciated.


      thanks


      mike
