Are you sure that the laptop's wireless connection used do say 100
mbps? All standard wireless network adapters have lower rated speeds:
11 mbps for 802.11b, and 54 mbps for 802.11g. What does Device
Manager show for the wireless adapter's manufacturer and model?
Could you have been looking at a wired Ethernet connection? Wired
connections typically have a rated speed of 100 mbps.
BTW, rated speeds are basically meaningless, because actual data
transfers always occur at much less than rated speeds. For example,
an 802.11b adapter typically runs at less than 5 mbps.
