Hi guys

Just got a Belkin N for a test to see if it is any better than my standard Belkin G.

When i hover my cursor over the Wireless Network Connection:

The Belkin N is saying 48mbps

and the Belkin G was saying 54mbps

So is the G better?
I thought the N was supposedly quicker?

Any Sensible any helpful replies will be repped.

Cheers

If you are running N on the router and N on your PC/laptop then you really should be getting better than G router with G PC/Laptop.
The issue comes when you have N router (which can support G as well of course) and a mixture of N and G devices in close proximity ... often the G signals will cause the N to synch at a lower speed.
If you have the choice use all N and you will see an improvement, or configure the N router to accept only N connections and use the G router as a simple access point with wired connection to the N router.

What do you mean use all N?
I'm only using a Bt Homehub router.
Could this be why i am not getting the full speed?

If it's a N dongle connected to a G router like the homehub you will see no improvement until you get an N router.

Are all of the homehubs only G's?
As in the white, black, the newer black etc?

If you've seen the adverts they've started pushing the n routers. You'd have to be a new customer though to get one free.

And you'll only see a speed increase if you're streaming high definition video to a tv wirelessly in your house. Otherwise n is so you can sit at the bottom of your garden and still use the internet.

I am currently using the white home hub but have this one above.

Would this work better@?

might be worth checking that £29.98 seems cheap.

Dunno if there is a story with them think I did hear something but you never know exactly whats what, I know you will need to switch off, opt out of BTFON also these might be blanking surrounding signals , that may have been version 1 dunno have a check for other problems

Also a problem i have just encountered.
My white homehub works a treat.
But my black homehub the one pictured, will not connect..

assuming the black one is a home hub 2 then you need to use that one (there were black hh1s and they were only g routers)
also you cannot have 2 routers connected to the phoneline at once
shut everything down, connect the black router wait 2 mins and then you will need to set up the wireless network keys again, printed on your hub sticker
