Hi Scott,

I also have the D-Link DIR-655 wireless N router and was curious if you have any recommendations for settings within the router to optimize performance and/or security. For the WLAN I have WPA2/AES security set up with a 63 character random key so I'm not too worried about that aspect of things.

I have it connected to a purchased Motorola SB5100 Cable modem with Comcast as the ISP.

I am accessing it wirelessly via a ThinkPad T400 running Windows 7 Pro x64 with an Intel 5100 AGN adapter (http://www.intel.com/products/wireless/ ... /index.htm) but am not getting a 300Mbps connection, I see a maximum 130Mbps although frequently lower (as shown in Windows connection status display)

Have followed Intel's recommended settings for N connectivity (http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/sb/CS-030709.htm) and also D-Link forum posting (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=616.0) settings for how to get 300Mbps connection.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
-Paul

Thanks for the info Scott, yes, I always set a password to the router web interface usually as the first thing I change.

Wow, the N technology is pretty complicated, didn't realize the complexities inherent in the design, add to that the marketing claims made by the hardware manufacturers and you have people who don't really fully understand the techology, like me wondering why they can't reach the claimed speeds.

Do you have a recommended method to test the wireless throughput using different settings? I see the smallnetbuilder site you linked to recommended this Windows tool http://www.totusoft.com/lanspeed2.html among some other methods.

Thanks again and wondering if you will be on Computer America again anytime soon?

-P
