Hows everyone finding the WiFI performance on the netgear? I've been running tests on my old, wired XP machine and also my current Vista machine which is wireless (n150 mode). I expected the XP machine to suffer without configuring (as per old jims posts) but have found the results to be far higher and more consistant. Do bear in mind that the WiFi on the vista machine covers about 2 meters and goes through a plaster board wall.Results
Vista WiFi - speedtest.net it averages between 30 and 40Mbs, bt speed tester anything between 4 and 40Mbs
XP wired - speedtest.net it averages between 40 and 65Mbs, bt speedtester it averages between 65 and 70Mbs
The upload on both is consistant at 15Mbs and I have IP profiles of 75.33Mbs down and 20Mbs up.
I'm hoping this is just a bottleneck on the WiFi and not the machine, which although has better hardware, doesnt "feel as snappy" as the old XP machine. Hopefully the WiFi on the new router I'm waiting for can improve things as I'm not entirely sure if the ethernet port on my vista m/b works, I guess I should really test it and see....Edit
Wow so I just tried it on the vista machine wired (took much faffing, turns out the drivers for the network card were years out of date) and got this. The pings high but I get higher throughput results from the London servers.
Very pleased considering I have no idea how close, or even where my cab is!
