Have you checked the 834N doesn't need a 2-channel (40MHz) setting to go above 150Mbps? 130Mbps is a typical result from a 300n setup on a single channel.
Almost everything does - the only exception being high end (3-stream MIMO) routers - which the 834N is not - can do 216.
yeah I think it does use channel bonding - this means I will need a compatible stick that can also do this? thing is I see many 300Mbps sticks yet I dont know if it will work in 270Mbps mode with the router, a review of the 834N said it only worked in 130Mbps mode with a 300Mbps stick (some Intel stick i think)
I just want to be sure I can get the full sync out of it.
270 and 300mbps modes are the same thing - MCS15 - one just has SGI. If something supports 300 then it must also support 270.
Every 270/300 device should work with every other 270/300 device, unless one or the other is faulty or bugged.
Intel don't make "sticks".
Finally, remember 270/300mbps mode cannot be counted on to work efficiently at 2.4Ghz. WiFi certified devices are limited to 130mbps out of the box, and even if you turned on 270/300mbps mode, it will turn itself off if it detects any other wireless networks using the shared channel. In fact, this could explain why the Intel "stick" only ran at 130, because Intel cards have channel bonding disabled by default as well at 2.4Ghz.
