Asus RT-N66R 5G setting

Does anybody know how to configure the 5g speed on the asus n66r? Everything that connects only connectsat 150mb regardless of how close i am to the router. I have looked in the settings and cannot find this setting. It is supposed to be capable of 433mb speeds.

Are you mixing up your terminology?

Checking ASUS' page, this is an 802.11n device. To the best of my knowledge, 433mbit thruput isn't possible
unless you are doing 802.11ac/80Mhz, at least based on this chart.

My 00000010bits

On the box or says it is capable of 450 mb inn the 5 Ghz band.. So it should be capable getting better than 150mb on the 5g channel.

...then begs the question "do you have a client that is using a 5Ghz card or not." Or rather is a dual-band (ie. 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz)
multi-antenna client adapter. Or try this chart for a guide....

Short ver, no 5Ghz client and/or not enough antennas on both ends, you're not going to get the speeds you want.

The clients are 5g capable. With the netgear router I used to have I was connecting at 320mb. Now the same clients well not connect at over 150 so I know it is the router with the issue. I guess d the only option at this point is to replace it.

Capable? Are they actually USING it though, can you tell that?

Did anything change when the thruput dropped from 320 -> 150Mbit? Either on the clients themselves, the # of
clients present, or on the N66R itself? Did you perhaps add a client to the mix that isn't fully compatible
with everything?

As I said, based on the links supplied, you're currently getting what's expected of 802.11n dual-stream
2.4Ghz/40Mhz channel. Anything faster needs everything in place and playing nicely.

150! I'd be estastic with that. I'm getting about 88 Mbps which I heard was pretty good.
