When I connect my laptop to the Netgear router with an Ethernet cable and run the thinkbroadband speedtest I get 9.2 or 9.3 which is OK for up to 10Mb. When I use WiFi, even with the laptop about 0.5metres from the Netgear router, I get a speed of 4.2. I know WiFi is a bit slower than a cable but this much slower?
We're unable to guarantee any speed via wireless due to the numerous factors which have to be considered. Can you get hold of a 2nd laptop to test your wireless speeds? What is the make/modem of the wireless adapter inside your laptop and are the drivers up to date?
