Adapter - Router

hi, i have a Belkin F6D4050 adapter

Code:

Specifications:
Compliant Standard: IEEE 802.11b/802.11g (WiFi Certified)
Hardware Interface Type: USB 2.0
Humidity: Operating: 10 ~ 85%, Storing: 5 ~ 90% non-condensing
LEDs: Power/Activity
Link Rate: 150 Mbps (In 40Mhz Mode)
Radio Frequency Band: ISM Band: 2400-2483.5 MHz (2.4 GHz)
Radio Frequency Band1 :Europe: 1-13

Link rate is stated as 150 but I have my router set to 300. When I lower it on the router to 150 the transfer rate drops as it would but I tried with the router set to 300 and it increased a lot, again as it would. question I have is with my router set to 300 and my adapter 150, although all is working ok at the minute will I be confronted by any problems? By the way the router I'm using at the moment doesn't have a 20/40Mhz mode, I think its auto with no options/tabs for that setting.

Hi LonnieMac,

If this type of setting helps a lot, you may leave it as is.

That doesn't sounds good. Perhaps if you can invest in the future another adapter that would work well with your router, just a thought.
