    I have a Cisco E2000 router running Tomato Firmware v1.28.7475 MIPSR2-Toastman-RT K26 Std and a Cisco Valet M-10 configured as a WDS access point running Tomato Firmware v1.28.7500 MIPSR2Toastman-RT K26 VLAN-Std

    Both are configured to Wireless Network Mode 'Auto' and my laptop has a N speed card in it. When I connect to the M-10 I get a wireless transmit rate of 104-117 Mbps. When I connect to the E2000 I only see 54 Mbps. Both devices are within 10 feet of me.

    When I run speedtests I get faster speeds when connected to the M-10. I am wondering if I were to update the firmware in the E2000 if that would increase the speed. I hesitate to do so as the present firmware runs rock solid.

    I found it. On the E2000 I had previously turned on 'Advanced - Wireless' Afterburner to 'Auto'. Setting it to the default of 'Disabled' boosted my transmit rate to 144 Mbps.
