Windows 7: Wireless speed only getting 14.5Mbps

19 Apr 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

To get the best possible speed you also need to use WPA2 with AES encryption with the wireless N only setting in your routers wireless set up page.

You also need to use those settings in the Windows wireless connection manager as shown in the pictures below.

If you plan on streaming movies wirelessly you will also need to make sure that the wireless channel isn't being used by one of your neighbors. This is a very important step in order to get movie's to stream wirelessly. Xirrus WIFI inspector works well for this.

300Mbps is what you should be seeing if everything is set up correctly.

Wireless download speed ~.38 Mbs
My wireless download speed has dropped to about .38Mbs since I installed Win7Pro64bit. I've troubleshot with MS, HP and AT&T and still no luck. Wired it's about 1.4 Mbs so there is something amiss. Have the latest wifi driver, no router, just an AT&T/2Wire modem, 2901HG.

Wireless Speed
I have a Dell D630, previously running Vista. After some minor TCP Window adjustments I had no problem maxing out my circuit on a speed test at 20Meg. Now with a clean W7 install and multiple different trys to adjust things, the fastest I can seem to get it is around 13Meg. Any suggestions?

I'm using a Belkin F6D3000(Atheros Chipset) (g/a/b) wireless adapter that is able to get 108mbs on XP Pro(with and without the "controlling" software).
