hello ebartolon...
it's still is but remember this is a free forum....
since airbot already gave you the lecture on the bumping threads im not going to go into that...
but what i can tell you to do in the throughput enhancement to turn it on...
also in wireless mode put it to 802.11n as i believe right now you are using 802.11g and not using the n spec...

also even in ideal situations you are not going to get the throughput specified in the n spec or advertised...
it says *up to* because that is the maximum speed that it will go and usually the hardware never reaches that speed....

im having the same problems, it won't go past 2 mbps where my former laptop went to 54. at this point, i'd be happy with 54mbps.

Also, sometimes it jumps from 2 to 144 mbps. any idea how i can set it at anything higher than 50mbps?

thanks

I've just had this problem and figured out that it was the security setting that caused it. I changed it from WPA to WPA2/AES, and voila, 54Mbps to 300Mbps.

To do that:
1. Open Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "Wireless Network Connection (..."
3. Click on "Wireless Properties"
4. On the security tab, select WPA2-Personal, AES, and input the network security key

Good luck!

Yes indeed, as you found out you must use WPA2 with AES encryption to obtain true 802.11n speeds. Those two security and encryption standards were made to work at 802.11n speeds.

You also need to use the 802.11n "ONLY" setting in the routers set up page in order to achieve full 802.11n speeds. Using mixed modes requires the router to slow down it's output in order to "talk to" wireless G or below clients.

If I had a nickel for every time I've said that I would have some money saved I'll tell you that.
