I'm currently sharing a wired/wireless internet connection between PCs and Macs with an Apple Airport.
PC#1 is hard-wired, the other PC and the two Macs are wireless.
Networking and Internet access work fine, but the Airport's top speed is only 11 Mbps.

Tried upgrading my wireless router to a DLink DI-624 and its promised 54 Mbps.
I configure the router (DSL with a static IP) and no matter what I do, I can't get on the Internet with IE.
I suspect there's a setting issue with IE, GhostSurf or my NetDefense firewall, but I've tried every setting configuration I can think of, including completely disabling both GhostSurf and the firewall application, and I still can't get online.

Any thoughts on what I might be overlooking?


Win XP Home SP1 (all the latest updates)
Asus A7N8X Deluxe
1 Gig Corsair RAM
2 80 gig WD HDs
IE 6

you need the airport extreme to get 54Mbps
