hello, i recently built a pc.
i have to use wireless since my rent apartment doesn't have cable.

  1. how are you measuring the max speed?

    It seems that you are connecting to G router which is connected to a DSL or Cable broadband.
  2. i tested my speed on this site
    so is the router bad?
  3. Did it use to be faster?

    I don't think the router is bad. It could be the internet connection that only does 4.5Mb. Or some other people doing gaming or video streaming.
  4. if i have my own router, the speed could be much faster?
  5. i have 3years old sony sz430laptop that has same wireless speed.
    i thought my desktop that has better wireles adapter should be faster?
    but it's not :(
  6. the slow link is the Internet connection
  7. i'm sorry but i don't understand what does that mean..
    so my wireless adapter is working alright?
    thank you for helping me out

    everything is working the way it should.

    the more people share and use the connection at the same time it might decrease the speed .
  9. ok thank you so much
