I have attached inSSIDer images to this post. I am running a newly purchased RT-N16. I have purchased ASUS wireless N USB sticks for the computers that connect to the router wirelessly. I regularly connect to the router at 13.5 Mbps (and sometimes varying rates up to 300 Mbps). The average rate given by Windows while I am connected to wireless seems to remain around 13.5 Mbps even though the laptop is in the same room as the router. The 13.5 Mbps connections became much more frequent (almost constant) last night. I am running the latest Toastman (7494.3). Increasing transmission power does not seem to help. I have left the channel at 11 as that seems to work best in the past. I have also tried the latest Tomato with similar results. I never used to experience issues like this with my older WRT54GL (it would always connect at 54 Mbps and never decrease). Any advice anyone can offer concerning this would be greatly appreciated. Would anyone recommend trying the ASUS firmware? Is it usable these days? Edit: I am the "Tim" network.
