    WAN speed not LAN

    dependant on range, local obstructions, and WiFi channel interference, 802.11n is 108Mbps (strong signal) half duplex so 1 device will achieve at best the equivalent of 54Mbps full duplex and then a division of that for each client device connected

    although the newest routers are now using the the full potential of 802.11n up to 300Mbps (half duplex)

    honestly though wireless networking is like 10years behind wired networking in terms of routing, collision domains etc

    thanks for the replies and yeah i agree what your saying alfonse i checked my link speed through task manager and it shows 130mbps which sounds about right.

    Just checked my intel4965 wireless card will only work at speeds of 270mbps with a dual band router which they dont have in this country yet.
