What speeds should I be obtaining on my wireless device?

Speeds obtained with wireless vary greatly. There are a number of factors that will affect your speed including; how many neighbors have home networks, how close those networks are, signal strength, the types of devices connecting to your network, the type of wireless your network uses, and sources of interference including lights, appliances, cordless phones.

One thing to keep in mind is that your wireless modem will set all connections to the speed of the slowest device connecting to it. You can have a modem capable of wireless “N” connections but have a wireless “B” device connecting to it. This will limit the speed of any device connecting to that modem to “B” speeds of 11 Mbps regardless of what the other devices are capable of supporting.



The above chart is a guide to what each type of wireless is capable of obtaining, what it actually obtains will be dependent on the factors mentioned above, especially the devices connecting to your wireless modem and the amount of interference present.
