Re: Faster Download Speeds With g Than With n

The simplest troubleshooting method would be to either test your notebook on another "n" network, or try another "n" wireless device with your router in order to find out if the problem is with the router or the notebook.

Without spending money on new equipment just for testing, you could perhaps visit a friend/neighbor and ask if you could connect your notebook to their WiFi network. They might also be amenable to trying their notebook/phone/tablet on your network to test your router.

D'Oh!!!!!

Why didn't I think of that? Thanks.................

I did a g/n test with another machine I have. Exact same results.

I'm off to dig into the router................. This really ticks me off to a pretty significant extent. This seems like a pretty basic thing for a router to be able to do - at least one that claims mixed mode operation.

Thanks for the suggestion!

P.S.: Someone in another forum suggested I experiment with different channels. After doing so I found one that delivers the
high throughput. Thx.
