I have been having some problems with my new N900 router. The problem is my clients connects to 2.4 Ghz wifi channel at the max of 72.2 Mbps. I tried it with a sony laptop and a tp-link usb adapter (both single stream wifi devices) which are both capable of 150 Mbps speeds. Both these devices always connect only at 72.2 Mbps to N900. The same devices were able to connect at its max 150 Mbps on a Netgear JNR3210 which has got a Realtek chipset and provide a better throughput. I think the chipset on N900 is better or I may be wrong. I don’t see any options to modify wide/short band or know if this is mimo enabled. There are not any options to tweek either.
Also a mac mini that I have connects to the 2.4 Ghz channel on this router at a very low speed rate than its rated 300 Mbps. I don’t see this problem with the 5 Ghz channel though. Mac mini connects at 320 Mbits or sometimes at 450 Mbps.
What can I change in the router to get the clients connect to it at max capable speeds? Again, this router is seriously lacking in any advanced options for tweeking. Any suggestions to make this work would be highly appreciated.
