      Fast ethernet - slow wireless router???

      Helloe everyone.

      Just got sky connected today - 6.5 meg which is the max my line can support so more than pleased.

      However, if I disconnect the ethernet cable and use the sagem router supplied, it drops to 3.3.

      I've tried with and without the security and on all three channels that they suggest - 1, 6, 11. Same result every time. Plug back in and 6.5 again.

      I'm right next to the modem and the signal strength is excellent.

      My PC is a fairly new Sony Vaio.

      Any clues?

      Try other channels, those are the suggested ones but you may find others work better, also do you have anything near the router like a cordless phone etc that might be interfering?

      Ok, I'll try all the channels to see what happens.

      Yes, It's next to a BT cordless phone. THe phone was docked at the time so I don't know whether that would be it?

      I'll un plug the phone and see what happens...

      Cheers
