    Quick question. I've enable afterburner on my hp notebook which has a broadcom 125mb wireless card but I am only showing 54MB connection? Do I need to enable anythingelse? I have the GS Linksys router.

    ots broadcom not linksys the router doesnt know what a 125 meg card wants to do so they settle for 54 something that they both know.

    gs models are only 30% of 54 + 54 mbps

    (.30*54)+54 = 70.2 mbps <> 125mbps
    besides speedbooster is overrated anyways.

    For what its worth, I've never seen a speedboster client say that its connected at more than 54MBps by looking at the Windows Network Connection Status. Even with my two GS's connected with SpeedBooster, they still only show 54. I think you may have to do a speed comparison to see if turning it on has any benefits - you can try transferring a large file - CD .iso - from your wireless client back and forth to a wired client and measuring with NetPerSec or just use QCheck.

    Oh, update, if you're using the Broadcom Connection utility, it should show the Afterburner speed there, though it won't in the Windows WCZ/Wireless Connection Tray icon.
