  1. Welcome to WF!
  2. I am making this thread as a small "tutorial" or help thread. I have the WN311B Wireless Adapter with a NETGEAR DGND3300v2 Router. (Dual-Band N Gigabit Edition). Both of these products are Gigabit. I had a big issue with the Connection Speed with the WN311B adapter. It only gave me a speed of 11.0 Mbps. So I called up NETGEAR Support. Guess what...they didn't help whatsoever. I had to call more times than one individual would have expected to fix this issue. So I was transferred to the Advanced Technical Support department with no notification (at all! ) that I had to have a purchased contract for that support department...the technician told me that I had to signup and pay a £60 contract for that department for support. What the hell? I told both him and the other representitive that I do not have a contract and was not willing to pay £60 for them to help. Anyway, so I hung up on the technician and tried myself to fix my issue. And I resolved it on my own. without their help. Heck, they made the situation worse by telling me to do all these unnecessary actions and settings in both my routers control panel and my adapters settings... SO...if you own a DGND3300v2 Router and a WN311X PCI Adapter, follow these instructions if your having the same issue I had. ----------------------------------------------------- Step: Login to your Routers ACP (Admin Control Panel) Navigate to Wireless Settings under "Setup". Check your "Mode" setting. Within this setting, you should have a few sub-settings. Their followings are: Up to 130Mbps at 2.4GHz Up to 130Mbps at 5GHz & 54Mbps at 2.4 GHz Up to 270Mbps at 2.4GHz Up to 270Mbps at 5GHz & 54Mbps at 2.4GHz Now here is where the slight problem persists....depending on most ISPs, Routers and PCI Adapters the settings I am recommending may be different. So Please forgive me. Also take note, you might want to try each "Up to..." setting in your router to find which setting is best for you and your Wireless adapter. The "Mode" value I have applied is colored in Green. And here are my Adapters settings: After applying these settings I got this: http://compsociety.com/tcsimgs/connection.png Now: http://compsociety.com/tcsimgs/connspeed.png ---------------- But...no. It's not fixed yet. Because you still get either 11.0Mbps OR WORSE...5.5Mbps. (Damnit!!) BUT! If you leave it for a while, it will eventually get upto 54Mbps. (I know..not much, but it's better than what we WAS getting...a poor 11.0Mbps. - People maybe saying, "yeah but that's only like a 43% difference..." - Yes. it is only a 43% difference from 11.0Mbps. BUT it's better then what we had! Most Wireless connection speeds also always fluctuate. For example. You have "70Mbps"...then it drops to something below "54Mbps". Don't worry. It will make it's way up again. Yes, I know....it may alter your speed and slow it down again, BUT the main thing is...it will increase slowly! Most of you probably have a good signal rate straight to your Routers. I don't. My signal has to go through either my bedroom window, OR through a double brick wall, the kitchen, then hallway, THEN to the router. OR straight through the walls to the router. That can decrease the signal strengh alot. So, just remember...if you are like me, and have your bedroom downstairs (some do, some don't) and have a double brick wall, plus 2.4GHz wireless phones around the room with the router in, those 2.4/2.5GHz devices are going to have a significant interferrence with your Wireless Signal. - No matter how much you try to improve your Wireless connection, you will eventually end up back with the original results as before you started changing and fiddling with your settings! I do hope this helps those who have "wonders" with their Wireless connections, and I shall try to put up a video of this for those who are struggling with NETGEAR's support departments... My YouTube Channel is: ComRadKeL. Thanks for reading, and I do hope most of this topic helped those who are having these issues!

  3. Yes. It will be on YouTube within a week for two.
  4. Yeah, I got that all set. It's ready to be merged into the video. I did a small video on my BlackBerry of my BIOS, and CPU configurations. Includes also my overclocking settings for those who are not overclock-savy.
  5. I am currently trying to put together a video. A video of both how my system boots up (which will be recorded via my BlackBerry's Video Camera) then by using CamStudio for the desktop, then Fraps for a small GTA IV performance showcase. (With HIGH settings). Specs: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- PC Name: HiddenGamer Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition (3.02 GHz - 3.6GHz Turbo Core) overclocked to 3.9GHz Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula BIOS Version: ASUS 1102 Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (4GB) Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Memory (RAM): 4GB (6GB coming soon) DDR3 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Video coming soon!
  6. Hey guys. A little update. My CPU and computer is doing swell in performance! If you have Steam, Xfire, MSN or GameSpy Arcade, don't forget to add me and perhaps I'll have a game or two with you!
  7. Very nice indeed. Good work Benna!
  8. Currently it's running at 3.93GHz. I had to reset the overclocking settings in the BIOS since the Cores didn't register at 6 Cores. All 6 Cores temperatures vary around 30 - 35'C sill (even when overclocked). I have 7 fans in my system. So I think it's pretty cool in there. EDIT: Plus I have my EVGA GeForce GTX 470 Graphics Card in.

  10. Ooo, very nice. Good work Benna!
  11. OK, my EVGA GeForce 9600GSO Graphics Card has arrived and using it. The fan speed is unbareable. It's so loud it's like my room is a hurricane. Unfortunately my CPU was lost by USPS, but they found it, and sacked (fired) the person responsible because he forgot to put an international sticker thing on the parcel. But USPS have found it, the guy got sacked and hopefully will be here next week.
  12. I have the Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2 Heatsink. Specs: Heatsink: 104 L x 58 W x 126.5 H (mm) Fan: 92mm Fan Speed: 900-2500 RPM (Controlled by PWM) Air Flow: 45 CFM / 77 m3/h Cooling Capacity: 130 Watts Bearing: Fluid Dynamic Bearing Weight: 520g Compatibility: Intel Core i7, Core i5, Socket 775, AMD Socket Am3, AM2+, AM2 and 979. Still I guess my CPU and my GeForce GTX 470 will be here tomorrow.
  13. My Turbine case is an ATX Full Case. (The big ones). I have the standoffs. Got them from someone I know. I now just await delivery of my AMD Phenom II X6 which I am hoping will be here either today or tomorrow. I'll update this topic when I get it.
  14. I tried calling iCute's contact number but they are in Taiwan. :o
  15. You know, that isn't such a bad idea! I'll do it. Thanks NH!
