Afterburner/SpeedBooster - does it work for anyone?

    Every time I tried enabling Afterburner/SpeedBooster on any firmware (Thibor, Tomato, DD-WRT) I get worse wireless transfer rates than with Afterburner disabled. The client is also a Broadcom based card that supports Afterburner, on Windows and made sure it was enabled in the advanced properties of the driver.

    So is anyone seeing any speed improvements with Afterburner enabled and if so what firmware, configuration and are there any tricks I may not be aware of?

    There has to be a Speedbooster-capable device on both ends for it to work. If you have a speedbooster-capable wireless card in a PC, then voila. If not, leave the feature off.

    Yes I do and I mentioned that in my original post. The problem is that I get worse throughput (as measured with iperf) if I have Afterburner enabled on both ends.

    I've had tested it, long time ago with thibor on 2xWRT54G v2.2.
    It worked fine for me. IPERF was showing 30mbit hdx tcp.
