80211b = 11 mb/s
80211g = 54 mb/sec
80211n = 600 mb/sec
However, those figures are on paper only (or in shielded clean rooms). For example, if you have a 80211g wlan
, 54 mb/sec, and even if your connection software says "connected at 54 mb/sec, you will never see 54 mb/sec throughput. You'll probably get about 30 mb/sec max.
The connection between a wifi adapter and an access point is never constant, it varies second by second. There will also be packet loss and interference, even if minimal, which reduces the rate.
The "download & upload" rates are regulated by your ISP. It's unlikely your ISP provides rates that esceed the wlan
rates. A 80211g wlan
rate is the rate between the computer and the access point and has no bearing upon Internet upload/download rates.
