    Hi all last week i upgraded from 30mbps to 50mbps from UPC and got a new wireless cisco modem but am only getting 19 to 20mbps wireless but 40 to 50mbps directly connected to modem,my previous wireless router was a Netgear 108 mbps roeter wgt624 v4 and i was getting 10 to 12mbs download speed,i rang UPC about this but said it could be the wireless card in my laptop which is a Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) he said if i have a G class ill only get 20mbps or so but with a N class ill get much better speeds
