Hi. and please bear with for this question.
I am fairly new to wireless networking, although fairly 'lit' with PC's.
I have a fairly simple questions that I hope someone could answer for me.......
I have a desktop PC running Windows XP Pro, connected to a USB Modem and BT Broadband( yeah i know and i will be changing ISP soon!!!). I also have a Belkin 54Mbps 802.11g PCI card installed. I am connecting to my laptop which has an older PCMCIA 11Mpbs 802.11b card installed.
The network is fine, I can see both machines and share files and printing, they can both surf the net, however, the bandwidth the laptop seems to be receiving is much less and this makes surfing on the laptop seem like dial-up sometimes, and when watching streaming tv, the broadcast seems to stop and start.
I was wondering if there was an incompatibility between the 802.11g and the802.11b card and if I was to put an 802.11g in the laptop would it make a difference?
I look forward to receing some help form someone soon!
