Ok so I got a new Netgear N600 dual band router... I set it all up and can make everything kinda work now but the connection speed can't ever get past 6.5mbps.. ever... I know my connection is capable of much more and i've also seen this router work correctly for 5 min one time... i've been unplugging and reseting everthing all day and nothing has happened.. i have a consistant connection now it's just TERRIBLY slow.. any suggestions?? BTW: Terribly slow indicated connection on laptop that is again not normally slow (brand new samsung RF-711) and a new model xbox 360 which also has a nice wireless N card in it... I just don't understand why the wireless would be so slow on this router that can do like 500 times that (up to theoretical.. 300mbps) but I think I should at least get maybe to 50's maybe higher..

What's your subscribed connection speed and have you tried updating network drivers?

The connection could be slow for several reasons. Are you only seeing this with your wireless connection or wired as well?


Updating NIC drivers
Updating router firmware
Make sure your wireless connection is secure and no heady download is going on (obvious, but always gotta check)
Check signal strength
Make sure the router is set for N only or b/g/n if you have older devices
