Thanks for the link to the reviews, @BirdDog. That's very useful.

I'll give those settings a try, too, to see if it makes any difference with my Dell laptop.

 

I went to try my Netgear router to see if that would make any difference, but for the couple of hours I had it connected the overall speed dropped to the 30s, so that blew that experiment.  Smiley Tongue

 

I'll give the HT2000W settings a try later.  I can't utilize the 5Ghz band, but perhaps those adjustments will kick the speed back up to where it used to be when utilizing the laptop, or even my notebook, for that matter.

That did it!!! Just making them couple changes to the 2.4 channel fixed the speed differance between the two. Thanks everyone!

Not that I need it now since I have great coverage on 2.4 and my speeds back my external router which is an older frontier (actiontech mi424) still dont work well plugged into the ht2000. Just curious, might want to expand coverage someday and buy a decent router but wouldnt want to do that if the ht2000 dont like things plugged into it.

I'm curious to see how/if this worked for you. I tried it and it completely wrecked my Internet access.

Whoops... Sorry about that. Wonder what happened.

Changing the settings killed the network and I couldn't access the internet at all.  Changing the settings back made my access spotty -- it cuts off every few seconds and has to be reconnected manually.  Not sure how to fix it since the settings are back to what they were.  Weird.

Wow... I'm terribly sorry.

 

I wonder if your computer couldn't do 11n?

Also, in general, sometimes rebooting the wifi by itself will stabilize it, then sometimes you need to reboot the whole modem and wait until the wifi section settles.

I rebooted everything several times -- no dice.  Smiley Sad
