I bought a US Robotics Max-G Wireless ADSL Router/Modem that is manufactured and designed for 125Mbps performance.
After setting it up correctly and having installed the compatible high speed pc cards from US Robotics in our 2 computers, as well as the host, my signal is absolutely pathetic.
Having only ever gained a maximum of 54Mbps and "Excellent" signal strength on a few isolated occasions, I have now been left with a top speed of 36Mbps and a "Low" connection.
I have a 12dbi range booster installed and no matter where I position it, this still has no influence whatsoever. It was my understanding that this product would output a maximum of 125Mbps data transfer speed.
Why is this not the case? Does anyone know anything about this?
Please help me. US Robotics are useless with after sales support and I am not technically minded enough to resolve this.
The speed rating throughput doesn't mean anything.
Most people connect to the internet via broadband, which is almost
always under 1 mbps.
You really should look at how often and how long you get disconnected. Also I've noticed some manufacturer inflate the speed throuput, to make the customer think they are getting a better connection, and that their wifi adaptor is stronger.
Whether you get a 125 mbps connection or a 35 mbps connection,
or less, would not make any difference in your network configuration. As
long as you are not being disconnected.
