Re: [Northeast] 75/35 - how fast should I expect wireless to be?
I have the 75/35 service and unless it's peak hours, I am getting at least that speed with my wireless. I am on the 2.4 GHz band and my wireless card is an old Atheros 9285. I am using an ASUS RT-N56U router for my wireless.
Consider yourself lucky that you don't live in a high density populated wireless area. I also bet that those speeds drop significantly if you move a few rooms away from your WAP, which is how most people use wireless these days with smartphones and tablets.
I need to setup a range extender in my house, it's just too big for high speed wireless in all areas with one WAP, not to mention the interference from the 15 other WAPs my neighbors have...
