I purchased and installed a Linksys E2000 Advanced Wireless-N Router, but I'm not sure if I'm getting the performance I should expect.
I purchased the router so I can run my new HP PC, Kodak printer and PS3 wirelessly. I finished connecting everything last night. After messing with everything for a short time, everything connected to the router appears to be working properly, but I'm not sure if the speed is what I should expect.
When checking the status of my router via my PC, it appears to be holding a steady 72.0 Mbps. The PS3, which is in a different room from the PC and router, is showing a slightly lower speed. The box claims up to 300 Mbps, so I'm wondering if I need to make some changes somewhere.
I checked my Comcast internet speed via Speedtest.net, and these are the results i received.
DL - 15.01Mbps
UL - 2.81Mbps
These reading are consistent with what I was getting before setting up the router. I'm mainly concerned about the 72.0Mbps I'm receiving on the router status.
If it matters, I had to call Cisco/Linksys for assistance in setting up the router. It would not automatically set up with the supplied disk, so the lady helped me do a manual set-up. She claimed the issue was due to the fact that I was using the antenna that came with my new HP PC, rather than buying a Linksys AE1000 antenna.
For those of you with router experience, how does all this sound?
Thanks in advance.
