How To Get 300 Mbps Speed using 802.11n Network?

Hi, I've brought a wireless router 801.11n [draft]. When i connect my Laptop with the same, Windows show me the connection speed as 300 MBPS. Although i don't get that much speed when i communicate with my Desktop PC. Is the Router faulty, or there's some other issue? Please help!

Hi, Make sure your laptop's wireless is 802.11n compatible or you will not be able to obtain full speed capable by the router. Is your Laptop's wireless adapter 802.11n capable? If not then you need to change your wireless adapter. If thats your Built in Wi-Fi adapter, you need to get a new Wi-Fi adapter that is 802.11n capable.
All the best!

My laptop's in-built wi-fi adapter was not 802.11n capable, so i bought a new pcmcia wi-fi adapter that is 802.11n capable. but still the speed i get is around 10 mbps only. anyother solutions??

Well, does your desktop computer has a wireless adapter?? if no then the speed your getting is apropriate bacause, LAN card or ethernet adapter's wireless capabilty is 100mbps. Everyone is mistaken here, the transfer rate is always divide by 8 to the connection speed. Connection speed is 100mbps. here mbps means MegaBits per second not MegaBytes!! Transfer speed is MBPS now here mbps means MegaBytes. 8 bits make 1 Byte. so the calculation is simple! If you want to still increase the speed, then Get a Gigabit capable LAN adapter, 1000 MegaBits Per Second!

Hey thanks a lot for your help, I have a Gibabit LAN adapter! Actually i had previously configured my LAN card to 100mbps full duplex as i had another desktop which had 100mbps LAN adapter. I reconfigured it to auto auto-negotiation!! Thanks a lot once again!

Re: How To Get 300 Mbps Speed using 802.11n Network?

For an 802.11n network to run at its maximum speed, Wireless N routers and network adapters must be linked and running in a channel bonding mode. In 802.11n, bonding utilizes two adjacent Wi-Fi channels simultaneously to double the bandwidth of the wireless link compared to 802.11b/g. The 802.11n standard specifies 300 Mbps theoretical bandwidth is available when using channel bonding. Without it, about 50% of this bandwidth is lost (actually slightly more due to protocol overhead considerations & MegaBits To MegaBytes), and 802.11n equipment will generally report connections in the 130-150 Mbps rated range in those cases.

The above post is right. It can be done with the help of channel bonding. But it is not enabled in the router. You have to turn it on so that you can gain that much of wifi speed. For that you have to ensure that there should minimum interference in the network where you are working. It is also important to ensure that the wifi n router and the network adapter is set to work on the channel bonding mode. Only after that you can achieve a good performance from it. Also the configuration normally relies on the software that you are using to configure the router. If these settings lack in that you cannot do major modification.

You might not get that much speed. The reason behind that is limitation of the router. If the router hardware does not support that much speed, then channel bonding will not respond. So you need to check properly that first the router you own supports channel bonding fully or not. Second you have to check that by doing this your routers performance is not affected. Also ensure that there shouldn't be multiple channels configured on the network. Bandwidth speed may differ as per the setup.
