Actiontec Next Gen M1424WR Rev I - WOW!

I just replaced my Rev. F Actiontec router with the new Rev. I I bought from Verizon. I have the 75/35 package. My wirelss speed went from a max of 35-40 download to 65-75+. Outfreakenstanding!

How far is the computer from the router? From my experience and what I've read, the wireless range blows compared to the previous generations.

I had the same experience, important because the spouse has a desktop and a laptop she uses on the first floor connected wirelessly. Simply replacing the router gave me a similar boost in wireless speeds at these two different locations.

My laptop is 40-50 feet away from my router and down one floor. The new router is in exactly the same place as the old one. I am consistently getting 60-75 mps download. the best I got with the Rev. F was 35-40.

Wired, not Wireless, right?
