So little is known about your setup and components that it might not be the router but something else. Your choice to share the complete picture.
PS. I have a 802.11b limited laptop and it's great. So it's not the 802.11b speed to the internet that's the issue there.
I have Bellsouth DSL and I believe my speed is 256 Kbps/128 Kbps. I know it's slow. I have a netgear 802.11b wireless router. When I use the wireless connection, the speed is VERY slow. I can't even open some web sites. When I plug directly into the ethernet the speed is fine. Will upgrading to a 802.11g router improve my wireless speed or would I need to upgrade my DSL service? The tech support at bellsouth said a router upgrade may not help, saying that since my ISP speed is only 267 Kbps, I am not using the full capability of my 802.11b (11 mbps) router. I am hoping that switching to a 802.11 g router will solve my problems. I am so confused, please help.
