Re: Poor Wireless Speed

Th eonly thing I can think of is to check the properties on your wireless adapter. It may be defaulting to 'b'. You may need to do a search to find how to adjust it. I'm on the limits of my knowledge.

Re: Poor Wireless Speed

I tried WPA 2 Only and all it did was slow my connection down about 200 - 300 kbps and load times were terrible. Stick with yes 40mhz n but keep with WPA & WPA 2 Only recommended.

Re: Poor Wireless Speed

So it appears that the wireless signal is fine close to the home hub, i can get up to around 40mbps over wireless sat right next to the hub, however it is stuggling over a greater distance (in next room- only about 20m away) so I am therefore going to assume I need a wireless booster that can transmit over a greater distance. Can anyone recommend one that they may have used themselves? Also would this be used as well as the home hub or in conjuction with?

Re: Poor Wireless Speed

You might also care to try changing the wireless channel and seeing if that improves things.  My HH3 defaults to Channel 1 if I leave it on Automatic, but although none of my neighbours are on that channel something else sometimes interferes with Channel 1  -  something that even InSSIDer cannot see !  If I change to Channel 11 everything is perfect, despite several other local routers usng the same channel.    As the Americans say, go figure...........
