hi i have a connection rated at 10mbits /sec downlink and 640 kbits/sec uplink. when i'm directly connected to the cable modem that i have, i average about 7500 kbits /sec. when i'm directly connected to the router (wrt54gs) i get about the same. however, when i try to do this through wireless, even with a laptop beside the router (or even within a few meters of the router), i only get about 5000 max and about 3000 - 4000 kbits/sec maximum bandwidth while the upload bandwidth is about the same as connected directly. is wireless really that much slower or is something wrong? i'm assuming that a connection thats at 54mbits/sec through wireless should get atleast 27 mbits per/sec because its half duplex which would mean that i should get the same as when i'm directly connected. is there a maximum wireless bandwidth that is known for the wrt54gs? or is something wrong. thanks.
