Hello

Got one of these at the weekend as I have a completely wireless network. I can get d/l speeds of 975Kbs and the network is quick and reliable. Problem I have is that the Modem Router Has transfer speeds of 108kbs as
does my network adaptor. However the network speed is only showing 54 Kbs (in the toolbar bottom right). Am i missing a setting or something?

Set the modem router to G+ only in the wireless set up page ( on the router ) plus any speed enhancements it offers ( up to 108 ) then do the same for your PC from device manager , under the advanced tab , you'll be able to select the same speed and enhancements , just make sure they match . Ok your way back to the desktop and re-connect , also make sure you saved your settings on the router before doing the settings on your PC .

The only thing I can think of as I don't have one of these , although I have just read through the PDF for it , is to try changing channels ( 6 springs to mind ) as there will only be one channel that runs at 108 , have a look at the software for the adapter and the router set up .

okay tried every channel, mybe will have to contact belkin as thier support link isnt working.

Stupid question One option is 802.11g + 802.11b im working under the assumption that the + sign means and ??

Yes , the plus simply means " and " 11b , including the "b" means it won't work at the full speed of 108 if it does support it , and I must admit , when reading the manual I couldn't find anything to suggest it supports 108MB/S transfer .

it doesnt say it on the box (speed) but when i looked it up on on a couple of websites it said transfers data at 108Mbs. Also, When I looked up the G+ technology it looked like that automatically mean 108mbs.

Either way do you know what the difference would be if the network runs at 108 or 54 . Would it be that noticeable? The G+ Mimo router was , according to the guy who sold it, faster than the Belkin 125 MBS G Router which was being sld for the same price.

thanks a lot for your help , you have been really helpful.

Okay Just read through the Manual carefully and apparently this router does only run at 54Mbs despite what the website says.
