[Wireless] E3000 with Charter 100MB

I have the Charter 100MB deal and what I thought was a decent router with the E3000. If I hard wire to the modem or router, I can get 97MBS+ given the time of day. Over wireless n, I can only hit about 10-12. Is this a settings issue or do I need to jump ship and look into a different router?

Thanks all!

You need to be using 5Ghz for wireless to reach those speeds.

Not to sound too dumb, but how do you go about that?

I highlighted the settings to achieve what you are wanting to do. Please note though. 5GHz does have a shorter range then 2.4GHz At the same time. You could never reach those speeds using 2.4GHz band since it is not capable.

The E3000 model must be automatic. I don't have any options to change anything for that. Even the SSID name is static.

You must be using automatic setup then. I had a E3000 as well before my E4200. You must be using wifi protected setup? Or are you using the linksys software? I am not using that and log in through my browser. »192.168.1.1

Well on that router probably but on the E4200 and the EA series my customers with the Verizon FiOS 300Mbps speed package are able to see the full speed.

The 1st step is to determine if your wireless adapter is capable.

Based on your commentary I do not believe That your wireless adapter is capable.

To get good wireless performance your wireless adapter must be capable and in the case of the E3000 if you got the Linksys AE3000 wireless adapter you would then have technology that is COMPLIMENTARY.

Complimentary technology ALWAYS outperforms compatible technology. And that is the reason why it is important to know what in fact you have.

or even the AE2500 which also is dual band and goes up to 300Mbps and is 10 bucks cheaper. The AE3000 is of course better but because the E3000 only supports speeds up to 300Mbps, the adapters 450Mbps ability would be underutilized.

The E3000 utilizes 2 Transmit and 3 Receive so the AE3000 would be a far better match since the AE3000 utilizes 3 Transmit and 3 Receive and that certainly is worth the extra $10
