    Hello,
    It's been a long time since my last post... but here I am again.

    I have bought a Linksys WRT160N. I'm running the latest firmware v3.0.03.
    I also have an Alienware with a Dell DW1520 (Broadcom chipset).

    My issue is this one.
    I set on the router to work at 20 or 40 MHz as Channel Width.
    Check my settings:

    And I get this status values on the router:

    And this values on the computer:

    As you can see, I get 20MHz and not 40MHz... So I don't get on my computer the 300Mbps... and get just 130Mbps.

    After a router reboot, I get the correct values of 40MHz.
    Check the router:

    And the DW1520 WiFi card:

    Here is a picture of the networks arround my router:

    Any ideas what's wrong on the router?
    Thanks for your thoughts.
