Why is my home wireless network so slow?
My wireless connection in my home is fairly slow. I have comcast blast internet (up to 30MBPS), Im using a motorola surfboard modem, which is fed into a Linksys WRTU54G-TM router that my T-Mobile at home service runs through. If I run my lap top hooked up to the router through an ethernet cable, my D/L speeds are roughly 40mbps. Through the wireless connection, within 2 feet of the unit, its around 17mbps. I can't help but think my tmobile router is the concern. The reason for all this, is that my directv says it cannot watch shows in real time on demand because my internet connection is too slow. (wireless)
Any thoughts? I've been contemplating buying an additional wireless router.. but I'm really honestly kind of dumb about this sort of thing. Any help is appreciated.
