    i just brought a belkin 802.11g that runs 54mbps, but we i got it to work it, but it displays 11.0 mbps... it;s download speed is only 20k. how do i configure it properly?

    btw my router is alos belkin 802.11g but it;s in my basement and my computer is two floors up....(might be a factor). I also heard that by installing sp2 it will make wireless connection run faster, is it true?

    As distance increases, signal strength decreases, the speed will go down. The 54mbs is under ideal conditions. If possible, can you put your computer near the router to test its speed there?
    As for your download speed, what is the speed of your internet connection? Your download speed can never exceed your internet speed, no matter how fast your router to computer connection is.

    SP2 will have no effect on the speed of your wireless connections.
