    not what the system tray says it is... but try and download a file from one computer to the other using firefox or something that tells you the rate that it is downloading the file at..... i think mine is running kinda slow... a file sent from desktop that is wired into the router to the laptop im getting about 650k/sec transfer...and that is with it being really close to the router, my system tray says 54mbps w/ 5 full bars. is this slow? its a netgear router running in 11G mode.

    5.2Mbps. What do you get when you are on a wired connection?

    I have a Netgear G router and a Sony laptop with an Intel G wifi chipset. According to DU Meter, I get about 20Mbit with it sitting right next to the router and supposedly running at 54Mbit. That's just copying a big file using Windows Explorer.

    wait.. im a lil bit confused... as in your download rate is 5.2 megabytes per second... or 5megabit connection meaning you are getting about 500ish k/sec

    well, you said you're getting 650KB/s -- which is 5.2Mbps.

    Personally, I get 20-30Mbps on my 802.11G, and 60-80Mbps on my 802.11N networks.

    I average 2mb/s when transfering between my laptop and desktop(desktop is wired and laptop would be right next to the router) with a connection at 54Mbps.
