I've been using a Buaffalo 11mpbs card for some time with my NES Versa e600 latop (roughly 18 months old) the laptop is a has a PC card slot II PCMCIA slot. I went out and purchased a 108mpbs netgear WGT634u router 2 months ago, and decided yesterday to purchase the 108mpbs netgear pcmia card so that im able to stream video's over the network. with the card in, im running at 108mpbs, how ever the signle strenght is only 2 bars, as compared to the buffalo card which is 5 bars. the laptop is in exactly the same place, the enviroment hasn't changed (eg, there are no electrical interferences around me). I decided to update the drivers on the netgear pcmia hopeing it would fix the problem but nothing has changed. My buffalo card still gets a slightly better distance and better coverage compared to the netgear. What could be wrong?, as im better off with my buffalo atm but in the need for 108mbps btw the router is situated about 9 metres from me atm, the only objects thats in the way, is 1 glass window, and just a 1 sided brick wall.
