Slow broadband going wireless, but fine wired.

  mark_i_d 21:02 03 Jan 07

With a wired connection I can get the high broadband speeds I would expect (up to 6Mbps), however when I connect to my new Orange Livebox router wirelessly (with a connection rating of Excellent) the broadband speed is less than 1Mbps. I have tried the obvious possibilities such as different wireless G cards/temporarily disabling the wirelss security etc. Could anyone please provide me with any possible answers?

There are many reasons why the wireless connection would be lower then wired.

1. the location of the livebox (near metal objects or magnetic fields)

2. Local radio interference

3. the line provided by BT (ask them to check it)

4. filters faulty (change it)

5. the reported speed is acually incorrect)

what it would not be is the network card or the livebox it they are talking to each other. What you need to do is ping the PC click here
