i took out my old linksys 802.11G , double antenna, WRT54G 54Mbps router and hooked my laptops ( through wi-fi) and started file transfer ( no internet running ) ,, >>>> and results are even more disappointing vis a vis my tp-link N 150Mbps router ,, transfer speed is 950~960 KBps ( around 7,8 Mbps, way below the advertised network speed of 54Mbps ) .... both machines ( aspire series ) have windows 7 ( one runs Basic , x64 , the other runs ultimate. x64 )
later on, connected both machines through RTJ 45 cable through the router and am getting a transfer speed of 6.5 , 7 MB/sec , thats around 60+ Mbps , way more than the advertised routher speed of 54 Mbps..
Why does it have two antennas? (sorry not a computer expert)
The Ethernet cable is full duplex and the two antennas combined give you full duplex?
From what I can tell without any knowledge of the router you’re using that there is a half duplex and full duplex problem.
