What speed does the network card on the PC say it is connecting at when using wireless?

Is this when in the same room as the router? And have you ever seen this machine run faster than this on wireless i.e. with another router?

Hello thanks for the reply, it says upto 300mbps, the laptop is in the same room as the router getting full wireless signal on it, also the same speeds on my other laptop.

Dont no if the routers that talktalk send out for any good?

In which case something in the 60 to 90Mbps could be expected, you need to drag the computer to someone elses wireless connection and do a PC to PC speed test over wifi and ethernet to make sure its not the PC and its wireless drivers that are the issue.

Otherwise it is just buy a N wireless access point where others have said it will do 90 Mbps and faster in the real world.

Not exactly.

A wireless access point, is just a device that converts ethernet to wireless.
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/hardware/reviews/74-as...
Which can run in 3 modes, and we tested it, but as you can see that device struggled to go very very fast. The best speeds only coming when using 5GHz

I think the best of any kit is around 113 Mbps when in the same room so far with 2.4GHz, and 140Mbps on 5GHz

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/hardware/reviews/77-sk... shows another providers wireless performance which topped out at 55 Mbps.

In short chances of getting much faster is really down to chasing some of the newer 802.11ac hardware I think.

tom, the confusion arises because what you think of as a router, is a home router, which not only contains a router in the traditional sense, but also a modem, a switch and a wireless access point...all in the same box.

In theory, theory and practice are identical.....in practice they aren't!
