    is there a noticable difference in download speed between a wireless desktop card with 125MB/s than one with 54MB/s and will a 125MB/s wireless card be able to operate that fast if u have a 54MB/s router?

    there is no differnece unless lan speed is a factor honestly youl never see any download using up the 54mb/s speed of a g card now lan on the other hand you will notice it to be slow also signal plays a factor and most of the cards that advertize faster speeds then 54mb/s are only supported at those speeds by special wireless routers usualy of the same brand as the adapter just get a cheap 54g adapter it will work fine

    There will be no difference in download or upload speed period since the 54/125 Megabits per second is the speed of your network and it will only get that fast if you transfer files to another computer from your network. Download/Upload speeds are only configured by your Internet provider. You can not change it unless you want to upgrade to a faster service. Also, those speeds are also used to transfer wirelessly to the router and then sent to the internet. If you get a bad signal, it can easily affect your internet performance. Check your signal reguarly.

    if anything it will slow down your performance in games (because 125mb/s requires compression, and that takes processing power)
