well for network it's ok usually it's 100mbps on networks but i dont think it should affect the internet speed, the fastest internet speed here as i know of is 6 or 5 mbps.

internet speed here in the US? the reason why i posted this is my wireless shows low signal and flactuates from 4Mbps - 30 to 54Mbps.. does it affect internet usage like opening sites that has graphics?

well first of all my location says toronto.
maybe you have too many walls in between or they are too far apart but i doubt it that it would affect the connection

802.11g advertises 54Mbps, but in reality, you only get about half that once overhead and other issues are over and done with. As long as your pipe to the internet doesn't exceed your wireless/network speeds, it shouldn't be a problem except within network.

How quick your internet speed is depends on your connection. Check what you pay for, it states the speed (or maximum speed anyway). I doubt it's more than the 4 Mbps you said was the low end on the wireless.

Unless you live on top or are connecting directly into the backbone of the ISP, you'd be getting a max of probably 4mbps for internet use only.

The wireless (11mbps/54mbps) does not affect your internet transfer rate unless you go below the internet connection bandwidth.
