Wireless is Slow
I have two laptops one runs XP the other Vista, connecting wirelessly
to a Linksys WA54GS router.

On the XP laptop I can download at roughly 2000 kbps but on the Vista
laptop the best I can do is a measly 800 kbps.

Both laptops are within 10ft of the router with no obstructions, and I
am updating every day from Windows Updates.

I tried turning off the firewall, and turning off IPv6 but these made
no difference.

Anyone know how I can get my wireless speed up?

Yes according at least to the driver page in the device manager. I
clicked the update driver button and it was unable to find a newer
driver.

Not sure. I'm looking into that now, but I can't find anything newer
on Linksys' website.

Re: Wireless is Slow
according to what you posted, you have both the wired Ethernet and
the wireless connected simultaneously. the Realtek wired adapter is
showing as active with an IP.

can you unplug the wired connection please.

what happens when only the wireless is active?

No better I'm afraid - still less than half the expected speed. I
actually attached the Ethernet cable because the wireless connection
was slow. I also tried turning off the autotune but again it's still
very slow. Here's the output of ipconfig /all after a reboot with the
ethernet cable unplugged

Oh and thanks for taking a look at this!

2 things, set the router to G only and on the computer, turn off
IPv6 again.

how are you testing the wireless?

Ok tried it but it wasn't any better.

>how are you testing the wireless?


Initially I noticed there was a problem when the Media Center software
on my Xbox 360 was very slow. Then I tried using the speed tester on
my ISP's web page which downloads a file to your computer and reports
the d/l speed. After that I tried connecting the Ethernet cable and
testing the XP computer to determine that the problem was with the
wireless.

Since my last message I've had a chance to try another router (Netgear
DG834GT) and the performance is no better, but curiously this router
has a 108 Mbs USB wireless dongle and when I use that the speed shoots
up, and is very acceptable.

So the problem appears to be in the wireless interface on the
computer, but at the moment I can't think of anything else to try.

Re: Wireless is Slow

driver components for the Atheros wireless.

The driver is 7.3.1.61 dated 14/7/2007. The device manager reports
that this is the most up to date driver however tonight I found
7.3.1.109 on the Toshiba website. I gave it a try but it didn't help,
and might even have been slower. There are no conflicts reported in
the device manager dialog, and it also says that the device is working
correctly. Tricky isn't it :-)

Re: Wireless is Slow
Interesting, there was an update on WU for my Ferrari 5000 Atheros
AR5006EXS NIC in the past 2 weeks or so - 7.3.1.127. Atheros
provides a universal driver that covers all of their chipsets (but
some vendors, (including apparently Toshiba) opt out of having this
universal driver cover wireless NICs in their laptops.

If you do a Google search for

atheros 7.3.1.127 driver

you'll find several sources like
