"Wireless" high speed?

So ... how come they call it "wireless" and "high speed" when I've got more wires going from here to there and everywhere and 2 extension cords to fit all this stuff into outlets and computer? And how come it all operates at about the same speed as before? Sometimes even slower.

    Wireless high speed is faster than wireless slow speed, but the connection from your computer to the server you're connecting to isn't high speed all the way.

    Think of it like changing from a '54 Chevy to a new Porsche, driving on a modern high-speed concrete superhighway - with 3-foot high speed bumps.

    The Porsche IS higher speed than the Chevy, the road IS higher speed than your local street, but you won't get there any faster.

    But transferring files from one computer on the network to another is faster.
