Vista stumbler says it cant recognize my network card or my version of windows.
you said to change my transmit power to max but which one of those options is transmit power?
Anywhere from 1 (me) to 3 people can be connected but it doesn't seem to make any dif who's on.
Again I really appreciate you guys stickin with me on this, I'm inches away from paying for my own service but Id like to try and figure this out cause its FREE from my landlord!!
Edit: also I have full bars according to windows's craptastic network bs

TX Power level - Is the power setting. But, you said you had full bars, so there is no reason to change it.

Wireless Mode, see if you can set it to 802.11g/n. But, I bet you are connected to 802.11g anyways.

What package did the guy pay for. What is everyone using it for, what application? If the owner plus one other user is streaming Netflix/Pandora, you may see a reduction in speed.

In reality, those speeds aren't terrible. The latency is very low, good enough for VoIP. Like said above, could be over subscribed. I know my 12mbps package can go as low as 2mbps sometimes.

One other thing to look at is your connection speed (Data Rate). This will change depending on the distance from the router, or lowing of SNR levels. Each time you move to a lower data rate, you maximum throughput will lower. You say you have full bars, but what is you current data rate? You can see it buy going to Network and Sharing, Adapter settings, then double click on your wireless adapter.
