I think the most you will get from your wireless card is 54Mbps and if you are achieving that consistently you are doing well. Just as there is a lot of hype about very fast broadband speeds being available - when the reality is that they are limited by the capacity of your phone line, other users, time of day, distance from exchange, etc etc, the same probably applies to the marketing of wireless speeds. My Belkin wireless router is similarly badged as an 802.11G 125 High speed mode 2.4 GHz wireless and I expected to be blown away with it. The reality is that it works wirelessly at a maximum of 54Mbps very infrequently indeed and the only reliable speed of 100Mbps is achieved by wired Ethernet. Wireless is a big let down for me and has recently been slower than broadband on occasion - now there's a thought!
