Gigabit wireless LAN speeds with Motorola SURFboard SBG6580 ? Tags: SBG6580 WiFi Wireless Lan Motorola Wireless Network Last response: May 12, 2013 8:56 AM in Wireless Networking Share runner555 May 12, 2013 8:42:31 AM Hello, I have Motorola SURFboard SBG6580 wifi cable modem. (purchased February 2013) When I plug 2 Macs into the SBG6580 connected via ethernet cables, I get gigabit speeds on my LAN. That part works. But when I try to connect via wifi, I only get about 80 M bit speeds on my LAN (even though the mac is using 802.11n mode.) I've tried running the SBG6580 as "802.11n only" but still only get 80 M bit speeds. Has anyone been able to achieve Gigabit speed on a wireless LAN using the Motorola SURFboard SBG6580 ? Thanks.

While 80mb/s may be a little slow for 802.11n, you will not get gigabit speeds via WiFi. 802.11n maxes out at a theoretical 300mb/s. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
