I have a WRTP54G connected to my DSL modem and then a wired WAP54G connected on a seperate floor. When I am connected to the access point (wirelessly) using my laptop (Fujitsu S7010D), I am connected at a good 54Mbps, but my data transfer rates (aka my internet connection speed is slow). But when I take that ethernet cable straight from the router to my laptop, I get extremely fast speeds. Which means there is something that has to do with the access point or the wireless network that it generates. Here are the DSL report tests for both wireless and wired
wireless57kbps download and 118 kbps upload
wired188kbps download and 159 kbps upload.
Now this is too much of a difference between a wired and a wireless solution.
Any suggestions will be welcome! Thanks for your help.
Jatin P.S. Both the tests were done on the dslreports site with Miami as the test location.
