I am currently using 64-bit WEP and I clocked just north of 3000 kbps on the CNet Bandwidth Meter (my ISP is Comcast in San Francisco).
I wonder how much faster this connection would be if I used WPA compression instead.
Also, if I am using the generic Windows (I have XP Professional) drivers for my Wi-fi NIC (Linksys WPC-11), for networks that have other types of compression, I still get the message that the selected network has WEP compression when I click the 'View Available Wireless Networks' option. Any ideas?
PS - Regarding my earlier problem (thread - 'I have an interesting problem'), it turns out that Windows XP does not accept a password for an encrypted network. It will only accept a key.
