You are over here now, the settings I was referring to are in the Routers set up page for wireless, these are just the basic settings that all routers have.

You need to use the "Manual" wireless settings, you should see a setting called Mixed "802.11 a, ,b , g, n," etc. you need to use the 802.11n Only setting there. This setting won't work with legacy devices, won't support G or below devices anymore, just N. This is the only way to achieve true wireless N speeds.

You can also try the channel bonding setting which shows up as 20Mhz-40Mhz or 40Mhz setting, these settings will allow you to use the bandwidth from two channels but you need a good connection for this to work right.

After making the adjustments you can check your wireless status to see the connection speeds.

Just for reference you can check out another thread at the Windows 8 forum where I show someone how to get the most out of a wireless N connection even after you have made the router settings changes.
