I have connected my WLI-TX4-AG300N to my netgear dgn2000 wireless N router okay. However I cant get the buffalo to connet any faster than 130. The setting on the netgear is "upto 270". The setting on the buffalo is "auto(prior to 11a)". When I change the buffalo to 11a only it wont connect at all. Is there a way I can get it to conect any faster?
This an extract from the netear wireless setting page
Select the desired wireless mode. The options are:
The default is "Up to 270 Mbps", which allows all 11b and 11g wireless stations. The NETGEAR WN511B runs at 126 Mbps or 270 Mbps when accessing this router."
Any help appreciated.

Extract from the manual I received:
The bandwidth switch allows you to choose whether the Ethernet Converter operates on a 20 GHz band or a 40 GHz band.
(20 MHz) is recommended for busy areas with many wireless channels in use. This setting will make the Ethernet Converter more resistant to interference from other wireless networks.
(40 MHz) is recommended for remote areas with no other wireless networks to interfere. It will offer faster data transfer in this situation.
Bandwidth switch is a small two position switch on side of box, marked X1 and X2. X1 gives me 130 MbsX2 gives me 270Mbs.

To reach up to 300mbps speeds both the router and ethernet converter or adapter need to be in 40mhz mode.

Yeah, the Prior 11a setting actually enables the 5Ghz N radio, 20Mhz channels give you 130mbps and 40Mhz channels give you 300mbps at that frequency.
