Again, whether you go wireless or wired, your 6mbs down Internet connection speed will not change. If you do not have to go wireless, then I would recommend a wired ethernet connection for all the computers on your network (if you have more than one box at home.) Wired ethernet will be as a rule much faster *for your local network* than even wireless N and will have few i...

When you are dealing with wireless devices, the kind of "speed up" you might expect is dependent on several factors that can change daily. Theoretically you should see a communications speedup between your N modem and your N wireless device. But, say there's interference of some kind, your modem and device will often automatically drop back to a lower speed, but a speed a...

Although in my experience it's rather rare, I did read a post out here written by someone who actually had a network ethernet controller go out...! If you don't think you need a new modem, that leaves just the ethernet controller as a possible suspect--since when directly connected to your ethernet port your modem shows no ethernet connection. if you have other machines o...

Was the LinkSys self-configuring? (The newer ones are.) If so, go through the router's bios settings and see what, if anything, is different from what you had been using before with your other routers. I know that you manually changed the security settings, but something else could be different, too. You didn't say what you were using as a DSL modem at present, either.
