Is there the posibility that my router could be infected or is being used as a bot or somehow not allowing full bandwidth. I have a netgear R6300 smart wifi router
R6300V2 from charter comm. I am suppost to have about 60 Mb speed. My wife is hard wired and sometime get 50 to 60 mb and sometimes around 30mb. I am on wifi and most of the time i can get around 10 to 13 mb. I have a total of 7 items on the router. It will only show 2-g on my connection. I can't get the 5-g to show so that i can connect to it. Is there someway to check it or to speed it up. I have contacted Charter but no help.
My computer is anHP touchsmart.
Definately not a computer expert just enought to get me in trouble. I have run all basis malware like JRT, mbr, adware cleaner/remover, security check. they have not found anything.
My router says it can be used as an AP. I have it set up not as coming into a modem, then to the router. Should I change this and basicly how?
Not sure what else you ,may need to know but will try to find anything out that you may need. Have read and downloaded some very good stuff from here. Thanks for any help
