    There THe belkin modem/gateway shouldnt limit your speed capabilities. You should be able to find the speed listed inside the modem's status page. To do this..
    Click start>run>In run type CMD
    In the black window type IPCONFIG and then enter. Note down your default gateway.
    Open a browser window and enter the gateway's address into it. Click go
    This should take you to your gateways graphical user interface.
    Look for a status tab or see if it lists connection speeds on the general page.

    Also you can test speeds at different sites. Google search broadband speed test and choose 1 of the millions of sites

    You're right on the limit. I have Verizon FiOS 15m/2m service, and I can get full bandwidth from wired connections, but with a wireless connection, the benchmark speed comes in at around 10m downloads. The router and adapter are 802.11g, and they have excellent signal strength. I suspect some of the issue is the fact that I'm using WPA encryption on the link, which adds overhead.
