Ok guys. Heres what happened. The first thing i tried was option 3, lan to lan with netgear being a secndary, then i tried the more difficult option, the bridgning. Both options gave me minimal improvement over wireless. The laptop and ipad are wireless n, not half n.
The bridging caused high ping and reduced my speeds by 50 % on my wired connection for some reason. Eventually i put everything back to its original state amd am just running off verizon's router. Good thing i did not buy their gige router, as according to my results, i would bave seen mnimal mprovement over wifi. I was, amd stll am getting, about 40 +- 3 mbs, out of 75. 85mbs on wired tho.
I will update this post later on , those are iPhone speedtests from my Netgear WNDR3700 Router.
#1 on 5GHZ band, #2 on 2.4 GHZ band : If the mobile speedtest app had longer speedtest I would be able to have 85 mbps at all times but because it is so quick I think this is why I won't always have full speeds.
I hope this helps you somehow
does this make any more sence to you know? I hope so
