thats a N device - lets see the device manager screen shot


------------------------------------------------------------------------
Device Manager
Post back the results in device manager
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
windows 7
start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there

post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, http://www.bleepingc...topic14738.html

Hi Incoming:

Do you have a Desktop or Laptop? In case of laptop I am afraid it may not be possible at all as it's inbuilt chipset on motherboard

It's 802.3b on the device manager and when I try to update it says it's on the highest version. I'm sure it's not N as well because my dad's is N and he gets like 400 mbps and I only get 60 mb/s
