i tried connecting 2 laptops using peer to peer wireles, they both have b/g
cards in them but always connect at 11mbs?

thanks,
Paul

Hi,

Just a quick thought: Have you checked the wireless settings on both
computers? The speed limit having been set to 11 Mbps on one laptop is
enough to cause your problem.

Good Luck,
Engin

Hi Paul,

Roughly speaking, you should check it through start>control panel>Network
Connections>(icon for your wireless connection)>Properties>Configure, then
find the entry showing the speed or b/g selection.

This is for WinXP, it may be slightly different for other versions.

Good luck,
Engin

I actually have the same issue and am almost convinced that for an
ad-hoc(peer to peer) network there is some limitation that prevents speeds
greater than 11MBps. I have checked the config on the drivers of both
computers and they are set to 802.11g preferred. I have gone through every
other option on the network config and have had no luck with changing this.
Can anyone else shed any light on this?
