WRT54G Speed Issue

    I connected my wireless router at school into the wall so my room has wireless for the laptops. Technically, it works fine. However, when I am wireless I experience less than half the speed than when I'm plugged into the router.

    I get 400 Kb/s when im plugged into the router or plugged straight into the wall.

    I get about 175 kb/s when I'm wireless. This doesn't make sense since I am connected to the router at 54 mbps, so i shoudl be able to reach speeds of 400 kb/s. My security set up for the router is just WPA-shared key, I think, and I've tried setting the router to G-only from mixed and back.

    Anyone have a solution to this speed problem?

    What's the signal strength like? Are there any 802.11b clients on the network? Is someone using the Internet from the wired ports at the same time?

    What are transfer rates like when going from your wireless laptop to a wired computer on the same router?

    2 people are connected with Wireless G with very good signal strength. When I go wired into the wireless router, while my roommate is just wireless, I experience full speed (400 kb/s) while he is still stuck at about 175 kb/s. There are two wired ports in the room and we are only using one.

    Hmm ...

    Can you test wireless transfers between the wired computer and your laptop?

    Wait, I read your post too fast, that doesn't make sense.
    What if you just change channels? Maybe others are using the same one.
