Chris, you are correct. The Windows XP machine most likely has an 802.11G wifi adapter installed. This would allow for a max connection speed of 54mbps depending on channel bleed from other wifi networks in the area on the same radio freq, signal diffraction, signal reflection, signal refraction, signal absorption, and scattering. If DJboutit wishes to increase the speed of his Windows XP machine. The adapter would certainly have to be changed out.
