|Thank you all for this amazing product and the support. I have been using DD-WRT on various devices for years with the most basic configuration. I am now trying to maximize my wireless speeds given my hardware and appreciate any insight for improvements. I have read extensively fiddled even more often with my results decreasing my speeds. I upgraded to the latest firmware and reset the router to begin from the start only following the advice of a few experienced forum members with minor changes to settings. I can also confirm I am only using WPA Personal + AES on my security settings for both interfaces.
Hardware: Cisco Linksys e3000
Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) mini (SVN revision 21061)
For testing I used LanSpeed Lite on two different laptops (1 meter distance unobstructed) with the testing server connected on a wired Gigabit network and received reasonable results when testing wired.
Dell Laptop Adapter: Dell Wireless 1601 802.11 a/g/n Adapter
Driver: Atheros Communications Inc. 10.0.0.227
Speed listed in Wi-Fi Status Properties: 300.0Mbps
HP Laptop Adapter: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6235
Driver: Intel 188.8.131.52
Speed listed in Wi-Fi Status Properties: 144.0Mbps
I am averaging about 13MB/s on both setups and know I can be getting higher rates.
To avoid cluttering this post I have included images of my wireless settings and test results at the link below. Either my settings need tweaking or my test methodology is flawed and I sincerely appreciate any feedback.
