hello, i recently built a pc.
i have to use wireless since my rent apartment doesn't have cable.
i don't know what router does my landlord use.
i'm using TRENDnet TEW-623PI 32-Bit PCI Rev. 2.1/2.2/2.3 Wireless N-Draft Adapter
and wireless works but terrible.
actual max speed is 4.5mbps and wireless shows me 54mbps rate

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.

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.

everything is working the way it should.

the more people share and use the connection at the same time it might decrease the speed .
