Hi all , hopefully someone might be able to help me , or advise me on this wireless home network.

I have a BT HOMEHUB 2 which is wireless n compatible , , my vista pc has an EDIMAX WIRELESS N pci card.
I have an XP PRO laptop and a PS3 which are both connected to the router successfully.

As the new version 2 homehub is wireless n compatible, apparently capable of speeds much greater than the usual 54mb/s you get with wireless g networks , ,anything up to 300mb/s or so the manufcturers data is concerned.
I am not very savy with networking and although my homehub router is providing a wireless connection to my pc, my laptop, my pda and my playstion 3 , none of them talk to each other as i have tried to set up a nework time and time again to no avail , , however, this is not the reason for the post, sorry for rambling.

My edimax software is telling me that i have 100% signal on all 3 anteneas on the pci wireless n card i have installed on my desktop pc.However, , its also telling me that the tx speed is still only 54mb/s. I expected it to be much greater considering that both the edimax ard and the homehub are wireless n.
Is there some configuration trick that i have overlooked or have i set it all up wrong ? ?

Any ideas, , ?
