Help. I have a linksys WRT54G Router and a New Broadcom 802.11g wireless card 4318 I bought because I thought that was my problem. I have 16M service from Comcast. When I connect wired to the router and run the broadband speed tests I get download speeds from 15M-19M. When I connect wireless I get 3M - 5M. My mother ran the same test on her computer and got 15M with the computer setting right where mine was. When I mouse over the network icon it says 54.0 Mbps signal strength Excellent. What am I missing?
have you checked your router settings?
Because on my router I can cap the speed for wireless connections so maybe that's why you're getting slower speeds when you're connected wirelessly.

Did I miss any? Are these wrong?
The Wireless Connection Icon says I'm connected at 54Mbps. Doesn't that seem like the problem is somewhere in the computer? And my mother connects just fine with no change in router settings. I'm lost.
