I have just upgraded my Internet speed to 1.5 Mbps (that's what my DSL company is providing me). However, when I am wired into my Linksys E1000 router (I have a Netopia 2241N modem), the connection speed says 100 Mbps; when I receive the wireless signal, my laptop with wireless-N says 72 Mbps, my laptop with wireless-G says 54 Mbps.
My question is, which is the correct speed - 1.5 Mbps for all of them or is it the other numbers (54, 72, 100)? I ask because I was considering upgrading to 3.0 Mbps (it's just $3/month more if I pay annually; I'm paying for 1.5 monthly right now, but if I do stay at 1.5, I'd pay annually and get $2/month off), but I'm not sure if I'd see a difference in speed or not. If my speed is 1.5 Mbps, then I would think I'd see a difference in speed if I upgrade to 3.0 Mbps, but if it's 54, 72, and 100 respectively, I don't think I'd see any difference, would I, since Wireless-G can only go up to 54 and the E1000 router only has 10/100 ports. I'm not sure why my Wireless-N laptop is only showing 72 instead of 300 (maybe because the other laptop is Wireless-G, making the whole network G-Speed instead of N-speed, though it was showing 72 before I put the Wireless-G laptop on the network).
I'd appreciate any and all advice you have - thank you.
Please take care and have a great day!
