My computer is currently wired to the internet, but I'd like to make it wireless. I already have a wireless router and PCI card. The problem is that the wireless internet cuts my speed in half. Is there a reason for this? Is wireless inherently slower?
Wired - 5ms ping and ~25mb/s download
Wireless - 12ms ping and ~13mb/s download
I just checked my hardware speeds. The wireless card is rated up to 108mb/s, and the wireless router is rated up to 54mb/s. If I'm the only person using my router, shouldn't I have up to 54mb/s before I'm hardware limited?
I would really like to go wireless, but I hate the idea of cutting my speeds in half.
What is your internet speed?
If your getting 25Mb/sec wired then I would say your speed limited to around that number.
So no, you will never get 54Mb/sec wireless, even if you have a 100Mb/sec internet connection.
