Windows 7: Wireless Connection Speed limited to 54mb/s on Wireless-N equipment

03 Mar 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Good news!!! In the router settings I turned on "Media Prioritization" and enabled WMM Support, and changed the 5ghz band to "AC-Only" and "80ghz" and I am now getting consistent connections speeds of 500+mb/s and I've seen it go close to the max of 867mb/s!

One more question..even though the router is set to broadcast wireless-AC Only, and I am getting connection speeds consistent with wireless-A, Windows and inSSIDer still identifies the network at being wireless-N. Any idea why?

There doesn't appear to be an option in that router's settings to go to wireless-N only.

Pulling my hair out...
Thanks again for the help.
