    I just recently got upgraded speeds, 50mbps! Yay :lol:! But my POS Belkin wireless G router only gets about 35mbps at max :angry:.

    I can have 4 devices wired in my modem, I already tested and had my PC on one port getting 56mbps on a speedtest (woot) and my wireless signal working great on the 2nd port.

    I have a wireless home network setup though, so when I remove the PC from the setup and have it wired to the modem, I lose access to the SMB shares.

    Anyone know of a way where I can have both function normally? I want my network shares to remain accessible wirelessly but have the PC on its own connection to the modem.

    I forgot
    Check your Belkin router for a "Wireless Isolation" option and make sure it is unchecked.
