WZR-HP-G300NH mbps question
« on: September 04, 2010, 11:50:44 am »

Before I bought this router I read reviews in which people stated they were getting about 130 mbps however I only seem to get 65 mbps. I have not updated the firmware (it came with the 1.74)  Any ideas why my speed is less than half of what others get?

Speed depends on your wireless adapter as welll.... Also what encryption are you using? IS  there lot of wireless connection available in your house?

I only have one laptop so it should not be an issue of too many machines running off the same router. After doing some googline there seems to be a consensus that my laptop just has a terrible wireless N adapter, thanks Hp for not mentioning this anywhere in the specs. I might try to contact Broadcom about this but good luck getting anyone to admit there is a problem with their product.

ok i have the same question - i purchased the same router for increased speed as we are starting to get "N" devices, and for movies. however i have an older computer that had a belkin "G" router that i was getting 54mbps. with the buffalo router i now get 18mbps. i didnt think speed would increase as the wireless adapter is a "G" adapter and is maxed out at 54mbps. but i didnt think i would lose 65% of my signal strength. i have the buffalo router set to 40 MHz. and encryption turned off. the computer is all of 15 feet away - no walls or obstructions.

Try setting the router to G+N mode, instead of leaving it where it defaults to, which I believe supports B. I seem to remember that you can make profiles for different users, so possibly you can set up one just for the G computer and set the band for it? Sorry, I might be off on that, but mine's packed up to be returned for frequent disconnects, so I can't look through the UI right now.
