Ok, so I've been trying to get a nail down about Wireless N and configurations to know what is going on. It is possible that the WiFi in the area could cause this and I'm just still new to it. So there are several devices connected to the Linksys E3000 (including Hard Wired and Wireless) which uses Victek's current 9013 R1.0. I also have a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 uses Victek's 9001 MIPSR1 K26 build that is practically supposed to handle the Wireless G connections and act as a switch for some of the devices here. Not sure that it matters, but I have a gigabit switch that is directly connected with the Linksys E3000 and the Wireless G is connected to the Switch. Now here is the thing. After installing Victek's newest firmware on the Linksys E3000, I noticed on the speed tests that I get consistant speeds again on Wireless N connections (2.4 GHZ). However, some devices have weird issues. Let me list the devices and hopefully we can track down if its a setting that I need to do on the router or something else. Smart TV 1: It uses Wireless N (2.4 GHZ only). It works flawless with no issues. Smart TV 2: It uses Wireless N (2.4 GHZ only). I've only seen it used a few times, but it too like TV1 works flawless. iPad 1: It Uses Wireless N 5 GHZ connection and runs smoothly. When run on the 2.4 GHZ, it sometimes has hiccups, but otherwise runs fine. iPad 2: Same deal as iPad 1. Laptop 1: Runs Wireless N (2.4 GHZ only) fine. It is furthest away and runs fine. Laptop 2: This has been a constant issue, but recently has been wired connected to run fine. Wireless N that its supposed to handle, if the router is on Wireless N only, the laptop won't find it. If it is on All, the laptop will find it and connect at N speeds according to the info, but it seems its max speed is shorter. Laptop 3: My laptop has a mini wireless N adapter (2.4 GHZ only). It Connects to the Wireless N quickly, but its Download speed is hurtful. I've tested a number of times and I'd get around 4MB/s according to the tests, but when watching its download rate, it can be anywhere from 2.1MB/s to 5.5MB/s throughout instead of being consistent. If I connect to the Wireless G router, I get 3.5MB/s, but it is consistent speeds. This laptop is closer than Laptop 1 is when its being run. Laptop 4: Not used as much anymore except on few occasions (that and its internal wireless is old that it only does Wireless G max), but when it did connect with the Linksys router, it ran well. Android phone 1: This phone is under Republic Wireless so my need for it to be on Wireless signals is absolutely required. When connected to Wireless N, I get the same weirdness as Laptop 3. However, when on voice calls, I'd expect to get some weird results for upload and download of VOIP talking, but it seems its smooth. If I was to download updates or whatever, it would do roughly like the Laptop 3 does with the download where its inconsistent. Same with web viewing. But connected under the Wireless G, I'm perfectly fine for downloads and just as good with VOIP as the Wireless N connection. Android phone 2: This connects to Wireless N just fine. Android Phone 3: If its connected to the Wireless N, its fine. Android Tablet: This one runs almost like Laptop 3 with a strange twist. The download speeds are rather consistent. However, the download speed is SLOWER on Wireless N than on Wireless G and when on Wireless N, sometimes if its a long download, it needs a bit to reach the speed that was recorded, but then it lasts for roughly 20 seconds before slowing down temporarily, then going back to consistant speeds for the rest of the time. On Average, I'd get 3MB/s under Wireless N, but almost 4 MB/s on Wireless G (Which is the highest I've ever seen for a wireless G connection in a while). I have many wireless signals in the area for a place that is not really in a city for the apartments here. If it helps, I set the Linksys E3000 to Channel 7 on the 2.4 GHZ using Upper 40 MHZ bandwidth reporting acceptable interference levels. The 5GHZ, its set to auto and cannot find anyone else using the 5GHz on scans. The Buffalo Router is on Channel 8 and I'd assume is 20MHZ bandwidth. The area's wireless, some I think are using Auto channels or may have just setup the passkey and let the rest take care on its own. Currently in the scans through the Wireless G there are: 3 APs on Channel 1 2 APs on Channel 2 1 AP each on Channels 3-5 8 APs on Channel 6 1 AP on Channel 7 besides my own 1 AP on Channel 8 besides my own 2 APs on Channel 9 0 on Channel 10 8 APs on Channel 11 Trust me, for a moment I was momentarily stunned when I went to access my router for the first time with my tablet and saw so many APs pop up unexpectedly (including a couple of amusing names), yet surprisingly all secure. If I compared with the E3000, there are less APs listed while set on Upper being 7 on channel 11 and 5 on Channel 6 which I assume is because of all of them on Upper Bandwidth or it was the only thing it could see since its much more interior than my Buffalo is. I'd almost say the amount has doubled over the last year. So is there anything I could possibly try to narrow down on the Linksys router so I can use the N a tad more or perhaps better setup the wireless to run smoother?
