Here is my story
So, I have an old computer with a "g" network adapter in it. I also have a "g" router. That computer connects to to the router at 108 Mbps. Also have a laptop the connects at 108Mbps. Got a new computer last week with windows vista on it. Put in a wireless "n" network adapter figuring I'd like to set up a home network (laptop,old,new computers) and may like to eventually get an "n" router. However, the new computer only connects at 54Mbps. Should it not connect at 108 like the others? I called Dlink and they gave me a bunch of reasons why it wasn't working, but the computer is less than 20 feet from the router and signal strength is excellent.
any help would be great.
There is *NO* 108 standard, they are specific custom implementations that are manufacturer specific (ie a's stuff won't necessarily work at the odd speed with Manufacturer B's stuff or C's.....).. In your case, only dlink stuff willl work at that speed with your dlink router, nobody elses.... "G" is only 54 across different manufacturers stuff. Obviously the new computer you got works perfectly well with NON dlink stuff at the standard 54, if you want it to work at the higher/custom dlink stuff you either need a different computer, or look into an external USB device for your new computer
I am using dlink in the new computer but it is "n" - the router, also dlink is "g" - the old computer wireless card is dlink "g" - not sure what's in the laptop. Laptop and old computer connect at 108Mbps, the new computer only connects at 54 Mbps, but the card is supposed to be backwards convertable to "g" Why wont it connect at 108 Mbps?
The 108Mb's is proprietary to Atheros chipsets and I would guess that your new card does not contain an Atheros chipset.
