Wireless Need More Speed

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I have a Linksys Wireless-B Home Network set up at my house. My current rig is directly attached to the wireless-b router (router attached to the broadband modem) and my 2nd rig upstairs is connected to the network via a USB Wireless-B network connector. But my internet speed on my 2nd rig is horrible! It's just slightly faster than dial up lol (around 250kbps, where as my current rig runs at 1500kbps). When I disable my wireless network and connect this rig directly to the broadband modem, then my internet speed reaches 5000kbps+. How can I boost the wireless network speed? Would upgrading to Wireless G boost the internet speed?

How far away is the system that has crap performance?
What is around the USB cable (ie. does it cross over a sub woofer or something?)
What other interference devices are around - cordless phones, etc.?

The 2nd rig is upstairs (current rig downstairs), so I would say if you draw a direct line through the floorboard I would say around 25-30feet. There is no subwoofers around the USB cable in my 2nd rig, but however we have 2 cordless phones in the house (1 phone upstairs, 1 phone downstairs) and 1 phone is only 2 feet away from the USB receiver (2nd rig).
I am seriously thinking about upgrading to Linksys Wireless G with Speedbooster. Is it worth it?

if you think it could be the phones that are messing it up (the phones are 2.4ghz and not rf right?) then you could mess around with the channels and that might help a bit

I saw a pretty big improvement when I got Wireless G. I currently use the Netgear Rangemax, because my rig is also quite far from the router.

How fast is your internet bandwidth using the Wireless G connection? To my knowledge, a router basically splits the internet bandwidth into however many clients there are. So my pure internet bandwidth is 5kbps. But I have 2 clients so they should each get 2.5kbps each? Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks.

The Gband router will help alot, but your still going through the floor, see if you can get a cat line for it, I have over thirthy computers on my system at any given time, and have yet to see a slow down on my tx rates, I have an RV park thats why so many rigs plus my folding farm.

I dont want any wires. I want pure wireless (I know I'm sacrificing speed and stability and such, but my mom hates it when I have a cable running throughout the house). Any other opinions?
