    Hey, what can I do to speed up download times. [​IMG]
    I have a 54mbps SMC 2804WBRP-G-CA Router upstairs on which I have a wireless connection to this desktop downstairs through a Linksys WUSB54GC wireless-G USB adapter. The signal strength is "Very good" and consistently 54 mbps. My question is how can my slow download times be possible because of this. Does anyone have any tips? Thank you.

    Without knowing what your ISP maximum speeds are, it's difficult to say. Do you get the same speeds when you use a wired connection to the router?

    Sorry, I don't know what you mean by a wired connection to the router. I don't know what the max speed is for my ISP. This is one result I had from a while ago. [​IMG] How could it be so slow now is my question. Thanks for replying.

    A "wired" connection is using a CAT5 cable from the machine to one of the ports on the router. In other words, NOT a wireless connection.

    As far as why it's slow, there can be many reasons.

    Register at DSLReports and run their line quality tests. Post a link to the results here.

    Go to the computer that is connected directly to the router and check the speed that you have. Check the speed of the computer that is connected to the router and the post the result.
    Who is your ISP?
