Ok, so I have a brand new Netgear N600 dual band Wireless N router... Running with comcasts fastest internet (with a wired connection my internet will run at 35mbps usually).. So heres my issue. Sometimes my connection will run just fine, and sometimes I can't get it to connect to the internet at all and my Local network runs at a constant 6.5mbps MAXX no matter WHAT. So My guess is the somehow the router isn't always putting out wireless N or much more probably, i'm getting interference from my neighboring wireless networks.
So what can I do to try and solve this here problem? Again, Everything runs maxed speed on a wired connection. Occasionally (maybe half the time) the wireless network runs just fine (not maxed out speeds but more than sufficient, maybe 25-40 mbps) and the other times my local network is stuck at exactly 6.5mbps and my internet will not connect at all or run at around 0.5 - 1mbps (when it's normally 30-35mbps)
A second question. Is there a program that will let me view some info on my wireless connection? Like what channel it's currently on, what the signal strength is (in dB, not the stupid bars...) and stuff like that. I know linux let's you view it, and i'm trying to get my SSD into my laptop with linux on it anyways but I would like to be able to see before then... So is there a program or way that I can do that on Windows 7?
