Hello, I have a Linksys WRT150N wireless router hooked up directly to a 22mbs cable internet connection. If I plug the Ethernet straight into my computer I can get data rates of the full 22mbs, but with the wireless, I am lucky to get 1. I know wireless is slower than wires, but still, 20x slower seems extreme. Any advice on increasing speeds would be greatly appreciated. I am broadcasting in Wireless-N mode only.
