I see 20Megabytes / sec (yes, megabytes - about 160 megabits / sec) throughput from my gigabit wired server to my Wireless-N laptop running over 5GHz.


Nice!

I can get my full 46 megabit/sec using my Draytek 2820 which is only 2.4GHz - when my neighbours all go to bed and stop using theirs.

I'm tempted to get one of these to add on to the Draytek and set it to 5 GHz only:

I have too much 2.4 GHz only kit, but my personal and office laptops are all dual band capable.


This is the great thing about routers like the DGND3700, simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wireless-N networks in one router.

Although, Netgear have released what they have branded "Gigabit Wireless" routers and adaptors now; wonder how they perform in the real world?

Agreed I bought my parents an Apple Airport Extreme in the spring, but don't have the money to get myself one (they had a [censored] router, so it replaced the router entirely).

I need the feature set of the Draytek, so can't justify replacing it, thus the "add on" idea.

Intriguing.

The R6300 looks interesting, but I don't need a router, just an AP:

I had similar results to you when I was first activated, and first on the cabinet, however a few months later as others were activated on that cabinet my attainable rate and consequently sync speed dropped, with the addition of interleaving frown.

My current speeds (a few months later that is) are hovering around 67/19, attainable 84/23.

I was first on my cabinet, started at 40/2 then upgraded to up 80 meg and got 74/20 now 3 months on it's down at 67/20. The attainable had dropped from 84/38 to 78/28

I see only a very slight decrease in speed over wifi on the HH3 of 74\16 when wired is 76\16.
HH3 is set to regular b/g/n mode not 40mhz with a Centrino 2 laptop connecting at 130mbit which I think is around the max the HH3 supports. This is a HH3b.

Most peoples speed issues appear to be caused by not using WPA2 with AES for N mode wifi.
