Default yesterday i had a 54Mbps connection Now, it's only 11Mbps

Hi!
I had a Notebook working on a wireless lan (both AP and notebook's
adapter are 802.11g compatible)
at 54mbps, although, sometimes, and for no apparent reason, it'd go
down to 48 o 36mbps WithOut moving the notebook from it's place; but i
could accept that .
what i don't understand is that yestarday i switched from my old
WindowsXP Home SP2 to a Windows XP Media Center SP2 and Now i Only get
11Mbps !!!!!!!.
The network card was configured to work at 802.11 b only so i switched
it into "g" But Still 11Mbps!
I don't know what's happening!.

thanks-

You can try changing channels, as well as rebooting the router and
making sure that the antennae aren't pointing in a direction that would
reduce signal transmission.

Normal. Many adapters report full speed when no data is flowing. The
real speed is only reported when data is flowing.

Still sounds like "b" only mode.

54 Mbps is fine.

Any of the better/major brands: Buffalo, D-Link, Linksys, Netgear.

Default Re: yesterday i had a 54Mbps connection Now, it's only 11Mbps

I don't understand, i had windows Xp Home which reported 54mbps,
sometimes 48mbps, i went to XP pro and i got 11mbps so i put windows Xp
Home back again and i'm still with 11mbps.
I SAW it working at more than 11mbps!, and when i copied files through
it felt like more than 11mbps.
Also, when i set my AP to work at -802.11 G only- my notebook couldn't
find it anymore so i had to set the AP back to its B + G mode.
I have a notebook that says It's B+G compliant and a AP that claims
that too. I saw them working at 54mbps and now they refuse to do it
again.

What should i check?
(i already tried changing channels and rebooting the AP as suggested)
