And wireless is slower than any wired connection.
I'm not using any software from linksys to use my router. The only thing I used from them is the drivers, windows does use it.
Anyhow, I know it is always slower, but it shouldnt be slower when browsing web pages. I mean theortically sure, but I had a different USB wireless adapter before, and it worked faster with web pages, but but slower with games, then this wireless adapter does. Its kinda confusing lol.

What strength is your signal tho cos i get 5 bars on my wireless
And in theory any wireless conection isnt gonna be as good as wired , your ping increases a lot depending on your signal from wired to wireless
One thing i found is if you have a cordless phone in your house when you use that it can interefere and cause problems so change your channel on the router till you get something that dosent
And its funny because youtube videos load the same for me. But at times, the forums, or other various sites wont.
Oh well, ill deal. Lol.
