I have just upgraded my 768k DSL to FIOS 5\2 service. I have a desktop and laptop both running XP Home SP2. Both machines are connecting to the router wirelessly. I ran a few download tests and I am getting about 2.7Mbps on both. I connected the laptop to the router via the ethernet port and ran the same tests. I was able to get 4.7Mbps consistently. Both wireless cards are 802.11g and connect at 56Mbps. Should I expect to see such a difference in download speeds between the wireless and wired connection and if so why? Anything I can do about it?
