    I'm running the wireless tether on ky dinc and the other day I was getting 54mbps the same if I was running on a cable modem. Well, today I'm only getting 18-24mbps. It's secured so noonne is mooching off my connection. What could be the issue?

    You don't have a 20+ mbps data connection anyways, so it's not affecting you at all.

    Lol. You can only get up to the maximum data rate of the connection to the internet. The tethered connection rate needs only be higher than that. So again, unless the connection to the net is over 20 mbps, which it's not, it's not affecting you.

    Apparently I'm not understanding you. Why did I get 54mbps yesterday and today I'm not?...I'm not b.s.ing about getting 54 on the comp. It stayed at 54 until I shut the tether off. It's not making sense to me.

    Wireless G has a maximum connection rate of 54 mbps. Your 3G connection maxes out around 2.5 mbps, but more likely averages around 1.5 mbps. Either way, if your 3G connection is only 1-2 mbps, it doesn't matter what the tethered connection is, so long as it's higher than 2-3 mbps. Make sense?
