I had a 100 2wire router initially where every computer plugged into the phoneline and everything moved very fast. However, I just recently installed the new 2wire 270hg wireless router and it is fast for the computers hooked directly into the back. Those go ast 100mbps. However, anything wireless goes at 54mbps is this normal. If I knew wireless was so slow I would not have purchased it. I also purchased a card that can handle 108mbps so i don't believe it is the wireless card. Please if anyone can tell me if this is normal or something i can do to fix this that be great!
