Alright TSGers, I need your help for this one.
I have 5 wireless PCs and a Linksys WRT160N router. 2 PCs are using Wireless-N Cards and the others are using Wireless-G. The problem is that they all connect to the router and have excellent signal strength but the speed is horrible. Even in the same room on wireless the speeds are horrible. However, when you connect directly to the router, speeds are out of this world. Any ideas? This is happening on multiple routers. (Netgear Wireless-N, Linksys WRT150N) What could the interference be?

Thanks!

Yes. I actually wound up speaking with Linksys. It was a combination of choosing the right channel(s) and changing from AES WPA encryption to TKIP WPA encryption. But everything is working now. Thanks JohnWill.
