Updating the firmware in the wireless router
Use WPA security
mixed b and g mode(n if applicable)
use channels 1, 6 or 11. Most devices work better on these channels.
Me again. -_-
With the new Lynksys WRT54GS router and Lynksys CM100 modem, all the computers and the Xbox have good connections, and for the first 2 days or so, the speed was great. My wife did a speed test and this computer, connected wirelessly, was clocked at 2600kps. Personally, I think that's fantastic.
Later, however, she was having trouble and decided to test again. 160kps. Significantly less fantastic. Prior to coming here to post, I was downloading a game via FlashGet, a 956mb game, and it was only at 46%. I started downloading before I went to bed, so that's not great. With 4-5 signal bars, shouldn't I be getting faster download speeds than 20kps? Especially considering I was going at close to 15x faster the first couple of days? -_-
It's the other computers and the Xbox, too.. I can still connect to big Halo games, but it lags the startup and everyone I play is staring at the sky, spinning in circles. Makes my stats look great killing all of those unmanned players, but it's not as fun as it could be. >_<
