What is realistic?


Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

Being rather new at using wireless networks, I am hoping that somebody here can set me straight on just what is a realistic expectation.

I have been with Comcast for several years now, and I have always experienced download speeds exceeding 8 meg (+-).  Last week, Comcast came out and installed a wireless modem/router, and now my speeds have dropped to a mere 5 meg (+-).  I have read numerous forum postings about such problems, and I am not sure of the results.  Is what I am experiencing just the typical end result of a wireless network, or is something wrong?  Is there something I can do to return to my previous speeds?

Thank you,
