Don't hit me - i'm new and not a very high-tech user of routers :) Though not a complete idiot either...
I've got 2xG300NH routers at home and they worked just fine until I changed my ISP and went from 6Mbps connection to a fiber-to-home 100 mpbs (tested, wires all good, PC connected through LAN to router constantly shows 103-105 mbps).
The issue is that no matter what I do, I can squeeze out only 13-20 mbps speeds on my iPad/iPhone/Laptop/Desktop through Wireless connection (5 meters from the router). Tried both "user-friendly" firmware (1.74 and 1.76) and DD-WRT (standard and alpha versions), tried a bunch of recommended settings (20/40 hz, changing security settings, different channels), installed different drivers and yet nothing seemed to work (except very occasional spikes to 25 or lows of 6-7, which dissapeared if speedtest was repeated).
I would have just settled for it, already had an idea that perhaps my USB Receiver for the PC and Laptop is faulty or old standard, that my iPad just can't handle higher speeds... until I went to a neighbour who is on the same ISP, having his WiFi set on a rented/leased router (COMTREND WAP 5813n)...
So what is it ? Does G300NH have some interesting setting i'm not able to find or is it just a general limitation of 20-30 mbps ? Any advices to such a green user as me of what could be done to fix this situation, what could have I missed ? Could it still be adapters (my last hope) ?
Thank you all in advance!

you can try the lastest firmware build directly form dd-wrt but I'm not sure if that will help. I saw these settings on the dd-wrt forums which you could try:
These are apparently the settings the FCC used for max figures. If you go to Status>Wireless and scroll down. What link speeds (TX and RX) do you see for your clients under wireless nodes?

Are you using this with WDS and are those devices connecting to the main unit or to the slave unit if you are using WDS?
