I just got the Virgin 50Mb broadband service installed and it's not working properly. If I connect straight to the modem (via ethernet) I get between 20-35Mb max and if I connect wirelessly I get less than 1Mb! I have the netgear WNR2000 supplied by Virgin. I had 20Mb before this and it worked perfectly, never had a problem with it. My brother is using a PC and gets a constant 54Mb connection from 2 floors away!
Are there some settings I need to change?
p.s. I have enabled the 'n' capability already and just another interesting point - if I have the ethernet connected and leave airport on I get between 45-49Mb!?!?
Thanks in advance for your help

My mac is a MacBook (Black) 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.4.11)

Sounds like some kind of interference between you and the router. Any microwave ovens, cordless phones, baby monitors or other RF-emitting devices between you and the router physically?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

The router is literally a foot away, if even that...that's why i'm so confused. There's no other electrical equipment around apart from a tv...
