I have a Dell 1100 running XP with SP2 and use Linksys Wireless G adapter to access the Internet. This connection ran at rates of 24 MHz or higher until I updated the computer. At one time, I changed the memory from 256 MB to 1 GB and I added a Kingston 4-port, USB hub. Since then, the wireless connection has limped along at 1 MHz. My laptop, with a built-in wireless antenna works at much higher rates, so I cannot blame the reduced performance on coincidental new interference. Initially, I had connected the adapter to the new 4-port device. When I reconnected the wireless adapter directly to a computer USB port, the link continued to run at 1 MHz. I have gone thru all the control panels that I can find, and I have not found any place to correct this problem. Your help will be appreciated.
