    Hi guys,

    I'll try and keep it brief,

    I have virgin 152mb,

    Wired PC gets 148mb download speed from average,

    Wired Laptop Lenovo G580 gets about 90mb which I believe is Ethernet 10/100 so that seems good to me,

    Wireless laptop then never goes above 20mb,

    Its 802.11N Broadcom network adapter

    Is there something I'm missing here?

    Is that the cap on this adapter? I'm not to familiar with how the 802.x works but from a quick look around it can easily do better than 20mb,

    how can I go about achieving this?
    is there any way I can upgrade this adapter to take advantage of my speed?

    Thanks a lot guys,
