I have a Netgear router from Sky but.....

If I buy a better wireless router, will my BB speed increase ???

At the moment I have from Sky 2 routers, the one I use is the white one Netgear but I do have a black Sagem.

I'm getting about 17meg at the router (checked by going into the router settings) but don't think that's what I'm getting at my comp.
I am wireless with a Belkin G wireless adapter

I don't think so mate?
I THINK most support up to 54mbps or whatever.
#2
are you talking about speed between router and pc or between router and exchange?

I think the speed between the router and exchange is 17meg but I'm wondering how to get the speed between the comp and router to see if there is a difference in wired or not

thanks for the help folks

You wouldnt see a greater speed with a diff router no.
Assuming you are getting Broadband as opposed to cable the best way to increase your speed would be to use a BT I Plate or if not available just remove the bell wire.

The speed you get via wireless will almost always be slower, if you want it faster use a wired connection.

the wired speed is faster than all but the very latest wireless tech but also due to its nature there is no encryption required improving access and response times, def the way to go if you can.
