USB Wireless Adaptor Not Good Enough?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi
I have a 40 mbps (or 5 MBps) download, but the actual speed is about 27 mbps.
I suspect this is because of the USB adaptor, this is it: http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_detail.php?pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44&pl3_id=161&pd_id=303

If I get a PCIE wireless adaptor, will that solve the problem. http://www.edimax.co.uk/en/produce_detail.php?pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44&pl3_id=189&pd_id=330

I know the router is not the bottleneck because I get full speed on the laptop.

That's a pretty cheap-o adapter on both links.
USB 2.0 is good up to about 30 MB/sec in real-world transfers.

Do you use a dual-band router?

Just to be sure, you did the test on the laptop in the same room/place your desktop is in? Same distance, same amount of walls in between and preferably in exacy the same location (same angles in comparison to the walls if there are any)
