    I just hooked up a cable modem and netgear wireless modem which also has wired capabilities. when I connect my lap top wired I get a 100Mbps connection when I connect wireless the best connection I can get is 11Mbps. both acctually seem slower than I'd expect. I'd like the wireless connection to be faster, our 10 year old desk top connects at 54-43 Mbps and my other desk top in the basement connects in the 40's Mbps both the lap top and the 10 year old desk top are withing 5 feet of the router. are there settings I can adjust withing my lap top?

    11Mbps implies 802.11b. You could invest in a new wireless adapter--802.11g or pre-n.
