i tink that is way much slower of what a 802.11g/b connection is expected to run. when running on the newer 11g version, you shd expect about 35mbps connection (when RF conditions are good) which is about 4.5Mbytes/s.
hence check a few things,
1. ensure that both the terminals are using the latest 802.11g to communicate. if a 11b (or 11a) device is used, the system automatically falls back to the slower connection speed.
2. check that no one is leeching on ur bandwidth by securing your wireless connection
3. RF signal is sufficiently strong
both are connecting at 54. SNR on both is around -35 to -45.
router is MAC address bounded.
anyway I have been reading up it seems that linksys as a flaw in the routers.. hence v1-5. the max they can do is 15mbps on wireless. that that is the 54GS model. I am just wondering anyone else experiencing it?
