    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering how do i get 108mbps speed with 1x Netgear WAG511 for a laptop and a WAG311 for a desktop computer.... as even with one of my other friends that got the d-link equivalent it only had manuals on how to install the drivers n thats it and the max speed i can get them both to do is 11mbps so if anyone could help me i would really appreciate it thanks :)

    Do you have everything on the same wireless network? Netgear's site says if you introduce new wireless devices into a ad-hoc network the speed will drop to 11mbps if the devices cannot support the new standard. It says to use infrastructure instead.

    Also, this link has a couple different versions of the 311 - I'd take a look at that. If nothing else, nose around Netgear's site, might find something helpful. Good luck.

    This is proberbally a silly suggestion, but are your network interface cards bandwidth speeds being limited?

    What 108 Mbps is the Wireless G standard, except off just using one band (signal) you use 2, so basically you can send more data cause you can send over both bands instead of just one.
