Wireless Network Question

Wireless Network Question

Wireless Network Question

I am not sure if this is the right forum, so if it isnt please point me in the right direction.
I have a wireless network in my house. Upstairs I have one PC, and a cable modem wired into a netgear router. Downstairs I have another PC connected with a USB wireless card and I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 with built in TM1300 wireless card. On the PC that is wired to the router, I get about a 2.5 MB/sec connection. On the two wireless connections I get somwhere between 100 and 400 KB connection. This is very frustrating because I do the majority of my work from my laptop. All OS's are XP pro. Any help would be appreciated.  

RE: Wireless Network Question

check for interfering equipment, try different channels, check the hardware configuration on the clients (I know Belkin set their .11g cards to a default of 11MBps instead of 54MBps).

You can find more (better!) advice from Forum730.

sorry to be brief, wireless isn't really my realm...
