Connection is:: 286 Kbps about 0.3 Mbps (tested with 386 kB)

Download Speed is:: 35 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Mon Sep 19 2005 20:26:07 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)

Bottom Line:: 5X faster than 56K 1MB download in 29.26 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 6.73 % of your hosts average (verizon.net)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-KGVF21LCJ

I have the wired dlink router that verizon provides with fios, and my linksys wireless B router is plugged INTO the dlink.  The above is my average speed, which was much higher when I had verizon dsl.  When im hardwired, everything is perfect or better in terms of speed.  Whats even stranger is that I have another wireless desktop downstairs (my routers are upstairs) that is getting great speeds from 3.5-4.5 Mbps!  So Im thinking there might be something not configured right with my laptop.

My laptop specs:

Intel Pentium M 1.5 Ghz

Intel PROP/Wireless 2200 B/G (Centrino technology)

512 RAM

Please help, I currently have to run a 50 ft long ethernet cable from my router to my room because of this problem.

alright.. Some things to check.. first make sure that the DHCP is turned off on the Linksys.. and that you a running a ethernet cable from port 1 on the dlink to the WAN port on the Linksys.

Next try plugging into an etherent port on the linksys.. see if you are getting the same speed..  If you are then try the wireless..

post the results here.. Then we can try some things one the wireless side..

FIOS requires you use a Wireless-G network.

Wow, you guys overlooked that one good. :D

11MB for B and 54MB for G, he needs to go faster with his router and network adapter.

It doesnt require a G router.. it is recommened if you want speed close to the ethernet.. 

I have another wireless desktop downstairs (my routers are upstairs) that is getting great speeds from 3.5-4.5 Mbps!

This topic isnt about why the speeds are not close to the ethernet.. it is about why he isnt getting anything close to the 11b speeds that he should be getting..

OK guys, I'm at my school now (Univ. of South Florida).  Here is my downloads test:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 3664 Kbps about 3.7 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB)

Download Speed is:: 447 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Fri Sep 23 2005 13:26:05 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)

Bottom Line:: 65X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.29 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 547.35 % faster than the average for host (in-addr.arpa)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-I3W2QHMP0

So obviously there's nothing wrong with my wireless card, which I feared there was.  But then again, it still doesnt explain why my wireless desktop is getting pretty close to my Fios speed while upstairs on this laptop I only get between 100-400 kbps.  ??
