My current network setup is...

Linksys WAG54GP2V2 ADSL Modem + 4 LAN Ports + WiFi

                          |

             WiFi link into house

                          |

              Belkin WiFi Bridge

                          |

Netgear WiFi Router (setup as AP + 4 LAN port switch)



And today after lots of trouble with remote desktops from one side of this network to the other, I checked my LAN speeds with iggynetspeed (freeware).

Of course my laptop connects in the house at 54Mbps because its always really close to the AP, but the APs connection to the rest of the network is also via WiFi, out to the Geek Garage, so I dont get visibility of that connection speed...

Iggynetspeed gave me averages of about 1 - 3 Mbps !!!

I raised the Belkin Bridge up about 30cm, and moved it about 30cm closer to the Linksys, and I raised the Linksys by about 20cm.

My tested LAN speeds are now averaging consistently over 22Mbps. As soon as I can find my extension cable for the 3rd party high gain antenna on the Linksys, I will get the antenna even closer/higher again, and see if I can crack the 30Mbps mark.

Big gains out of small moves....

yes I found the same - albetit with a dramatic improvement in range

I now can surf the Net 100m away with the wifi router mounted higher [my usb client has a 4dBi antenna]

I got approx 22Mbit too, I doubt you'll get more than 27Mbit since the 54Mbit of 802.11g is an aggregate of both directions unless of course you have a 'super G' setup or pre N i.e. MIMO

I also discovered that a wired router on my network that I thought I had disabled the router function on, was going mad, and causing all sorts of issues for me!
