Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 and Buffalo WLI2-PCI-G54S gongkia2000 Dec 14th, 06, 08:34 PM #1

Hey, i just got these 2, one is a High speed 125mbps router, other a high speed 125mbps adaptor.

When I attempt to connect the 2, i only am able to connect at 54mbps. Only randomly when I restart the router to factory defaults it will connect at 125mbps, after a while it will revert back to 54mbps. I just cant seem to keep the connection going at 125mbps. Yes, it is enabled on the router settings page, but I dont see an option for this on the software on the adaptor side of things. Weird.

Anyone can help? thks.

it is usually only enabled when it is required.

try transferring large files via the air and see if the speeds hits 125mbps.

the above was true for the Atheros 108mbps chipset. However, upon getting the buffalo, i do no have any compatabile adapaters for the 125mbps, thus have disabled the 'afterburner' option.

i think i noticed a phenomenon... Whenever i connect 1 sole client comp to the router, it'll work at 125, when I connect another client comp it will drop to 54... I'm gonna try DD-WRT and see how it goes

haha. it is common, for most brands of hi-speed router to drop to 54mbps when there's a 54mbps client connected.

if all are based on 125, then no problem. 125 client & 54 client connect together, drop to 54. the router wld auto switch to the lower speed.

& welcome to dd-wrt club.

It all depends on whether the firmware supports clients connecting at two different speeds. Early G routers had the same problem of a b only client connecting in. All the g clients will become b clients when that happens.
