I bought a D-Link Simultaneous Dual-Band 2.4/5-ghz Gigabit wireless router! It's pretty nice, and doesn't act like a jerk and drop my connection when I am playing video games.

Anyways, I set up a secured home network for my house using WPA-2 I think it was. A 'G' connection and an 'N' connection. I am using the Simultaneous Dual-Band USB adapter for my desktop. Smile

Problem is: when I connect to my N network, I am running about 78 Mbps and have a pretty weak connection. My G network is running 130 Mbps, and has a stronger connection.

Why is this? I thought N was faster/stronger. Could it be because I have other laptops in the house using the G network?

Edit: had to fix my subject because I spelled 'and' wrong, like a retard

Hmmm, that seems odd. I thought that N was faster than G too.

I am pretty sure thought that G wouldn't become faster if more computers are using it then the N connection. How far away from are you from the router? Maybe your router isn't putting out the N quite as far as the G. Can you move the router closer to(or right next to) the computer you are using?

See what happens then.

Is this the D-Link DIR -628 Xtreme N, D-Link DIR -825 Xtreme N or D-Link DIR -855 Xtreme N Dual Band Router?

Depending on your answer to this will depend upon what response you get Smile
