    So my question is what kind of speed should I expect to see on file transfers between two wireless N computers. The reason I am asking is because I just ran a test by transferring a 700MB file and only saw 1.5-2.1MB transfer speeds.

    My setup is:

    Main router RT-N16 running Tomato v1.28.9054 MIPSR2-043 K26 USB Ext-BT
    Repeater bridge E2000 running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (02/17/11) mega - build 16214
    2 Laptops and 1 Android phone connecting to main router
    A TV, PS3, and HTPC hardwired to the repeater bridge

    For my first test I transferred the 700MB file between the HTPC and the 150Mb laptop and got about 1.5MB/s and for the second one I transferred the same file between the 150Mb laptop and the 72Mb laptop and got about 2.1 MB/s.

    Shouldn't this be higher? I know I will never get the maximum throughput of the routers and adapters.

    If more info is needed please let me know.
