Only getting 11.0 mpbs

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hi this is my first post here, please correct me if I'm doing anything wrong.

My problem is that on my computer (Windows XP) I check my connection info and the signal strength is very good but my mbps is only 11. I'm using a Netgear Rangemax wireless adapter google WN311B to find it. Before that I had some linskys one and had the same problem accept the signal strength was a lot worse. I don't think it's my router because my laptop never drops 54 mbps anywhere in the house. I'm guessing it's something to do with my computer. Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

You get 11mps at speedtest.net? If your not using that to test your speed, try it and let us know what you get.

The 11mbps is the actual speed that your connection is established at. The 54mbps is the maximum rated speed to which the networking card is rated for on your laptop. Im guessing its a "G" networking card since you stated it it 54mbps.

Try running a speed test on your connection on both computers. The one that most people use is speedtest.net. Let us know what your results are.

11 sounds right. My internet is 12. Many routers are rated at 54 because European internet gets into the gigabyte range. You'll notice your LAN chip is also rated for gbps or 10/100/1000 mbps.

Guess what? I'm using mobile broadband in Australia and I'm lucky if I get 1Mbps. The internet here is slow as. 11Mbps is fast and sounds good! What is it supposed to be at? And the ISPs say max this or that but you're lucky if you get the max speed.

Thanks for all the replies I'm paying for 16 Mb/s so not happy with that and my laptop does actually dowload at 16 Mb/s sometimes even more.

From previous experience blizzard downloader and steam it was always at least 10mbps on steam it quite often exceeded 16mbps. I'm talking recent downloads as well.

megabytes or megabits? If it's 16 megabits then you are getting 2x what you should be getting.

Looks like Opal Telecom only offers up to 24 megabit connections.
