Default WiFi usage/speed question

"BORG" wrote in message
...
[snip]
Both networks are reading a 11Mbps connection. Now when I open Task
manager and look at the usage of the network it only shows that at max
50% utilisation. Seeing as there is nothing else using the network why
isn't it using the full amount ?


Two reasons: the overhead of the wireless connection (which is greater when
you use encryption), and the fact that Windows file sharing is unable to
saturate the network.
