    Virginmedia gave me a free upgrade from 50Mb to 100Mb this summer , a couple of weeks ago I had another speed boost to 120Mb

    This is my first time I've completely saturated the 300 Mbps Wireless-N connection of my WiFi using university internet today. The rest are just overhead. I always take advantage of this incredible 20 MB/s upload speed by backing up my large files online :). Now I'm very happy on the throughput of this Intel wireless NIC that I have on my laptop. I'm glad Lenovo put this NIC on their Y and Z series of their laptops instead of the slower 1x1 Atheros or 1x1 Broadcom NIC.

    WOW! From reading many articles about WiFi overhead, most of them say that max you can get is only 160 Mbps out of 300 Mbps connection. Well, I must say that you can go above that and even reach 179 Mbps throughput! That's 60% of the theoretical speed. Here's some screenshots:

    I guess enterprise class WiFi access point is awesome! Too bad the university throttles the download speed but I'm just interested with the maximum throughput that my WiFi adapter can put out :)

    I stumbled across a tutorial that shows you how to stop Windows reserving packets, and my max 3 mb/s download shot up to this speed (makes a massive difference for me ):


    In case anyone is interested here's the tutorial. I also found out you can use group policy editor and go to:
    Computer configuration
    Administrative template
    Network
    Click on QoS Packet Scheduler
    Double click on limit reservable bandwidth
    Enable, and set to 0.
