Hi,
I think I may have a problem with my WAG54G. When I connect to the access point with each of my laptops, one is a Dell with a TrueMobile 1150 802.11b card and the other is a Toshiba with a Toshiba 802.11b card, XP only reports it as connecting at 2Mbps!! I have tried absolutely everything:

- Updated drivers on Laptop
- Changed the channels
- Check for interference
- Ensured that the microwave was not on
- Checked that neighbours do not have any wireless devices
- Tried 802.11b mode, 802.11g mode, and mixed mode
- 128 Bit Wep
- 64 Bit Wep
- No encryption
- Setting TX to 11Mbps instead of auto

and still it only connects at 2Mbps. I haven't upgraded the firmware yet. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or know what could be causing it? This is doing my head in!!!

Many thanks in advance,

Stu

no problems here. The cards (PCMCIA and PCI) were from Tekram and have an Intersil Chipset. However they were always forced in their driver settings to 11Mbit (not auto!) .

Try forcing the cards to 11Mbit and have the WAG54g stay on auto/mixed mode.
