Obtaining 54 speed in B-Wireless network

By RagazzoManolo ·
Hi, I have a Linksys B Wireless network. My kid needs access in his room, but he wants more than the 11mpbs a B card can provide. So He got a G card, compatible with the B Network, but he is getting only a max. of 11mbps.
Is there a way to obtain a higher speed? or is this a matter of upgrading the router to a G type?

You will need to upgrade router to 802.11g. Both components (router and adapter) must be 802.11g for higher speed transfer.

Even though he has a g card the b router is only capable of 11mbps. Tell him to save his allowance and buy you a g router when he has enough (ha ha).

You cannot put the tires running faster than the rest of the car.

So the G card it?s just the first step to put the network running faster. The second step is to buy the router G type. The last step is to configure the network to work with the G protocol so you can get the 54Mbps speed.
