Re: 60mb upgrade

I am waiting for my parent to finish work as he is the account holder and will aks them about the speed issue and for the usb adapter as two laptops in the house are also getting download speeds of 14-25mbps.

I also tried to connect my old wireless router to the super hub which used to connect to my old modem but that made no difference in speed.

Phoned virgin and after talking to about 4 people and them trying to charge me £30 for an adapter I got it for free and it should arrive next week.

You're not going to get full speed with a 54g wireless adapter. If you get much over 25 you're doing well.

Cheers

Re: 60mb upgrade

I was upgraded from 10mbps to 60mbps about 2 weeks ago and have had no issues at all. I use the superhub in modem only mode hooked up to a d-link DIR655 which I've had for about 4 years and its been as solid as a rock.

On wireless my kids get around 18/22mbps on their laptops (802.11g). The highest wireless I've had on my iMac is 57mbps (802.11n) but l keep that on a wired connection which usually achieves around 62mbps.
We also have 2 360's on wired and various other wireless devices.

All is good so far.

Re: 60mb upgrade

Got sent a superhub yesterday to upgrade to 60meg, going to give it a try in router mode, if it fails will probably put my vmng back in, my area only has 4 d/s channels anyway

You should be able to get the same 62mbps you get wired over Wireless if you have a decent N router.

Im using the superhub in modem mode with a buffalo airstation N router and can get a solid 62/63mbps Wireless on my laptop.
