My "N" is slower than my "G" Tags: Wireless Router Motorola Linksys Wireless Networking Last response: November 1, 2011 7:45 PM in Wireless Networking Share eeandersen October 31, 2011 12:09:31 PM I have two wireless routers on my network (why, you might ask - only because I can). One is a Linksys WRT54G and the other a Motorola modem/router DOCSIS3.0 combo. model SBG6580. Using the speedtest at http://speakeasy.net/speedtest/ , same PC, same adapter (Linksys AE1000) gives me twice the speed on the Linksys as conmpared to the Motorola. Multiple runs, multiple days... What gives? More about : slower Emerald October 31, 2011 5:43:17 PM Which wireless mode are you using? WEP, WPA, or WPA2 are you using TKIP or AES encryption? I personally do not like all-in-ones and the SB6580 can run hot. I prefer the SB6120 or SB 6121 modems plus a router. eeandersen November 1, 2011 7:45:29 PM On the Motorola, I have "N" with WPA2/AES. On the Linksys, I have "G" with WPA2 (personal) / AES. Seems to be the same or very similar? The AIO seemed like it gave me everything I wanted: "N" service, DOCSIS 3.0, gigabit speeds. Sounds good, looks bad! Maybe I'll force the Motorola to"G" mode and see what happens then. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: Forumwireless n slower than wireless g ?
