Wireless limit?

----- Wired
~~~ Wireless

Hi guys,

I have a internet speed of 100Mbps Down 50 Mbps Up. When I do a speedtest using the following setup

Router ---- Laptop

This is the result I get



However my room was too far away to acutally have a wired connection. I have tested that the router wireless perform pretty bad on wireless so I have install a AP (300Mbps Wireless N Access Point TL-WA901ND) to the router.

Router ---- AP ~~~ Laptop

This is the result I get



I have disable the router WLAN to prevent interference. On the laptop the signal was most of the time 5 bar(full) and sometime 4 bar. Nothing lower then that. Even If I bring my laptop close to the AP I'm still getting the same result. The AP was using WPA2 AES. I and try disable WLAN security and it is still the same. My laptop NIC was Intel Ultimate 6300. Thats the max I can get?

Does the laptop's wireless connection method use wireless N or G?

Your access point could be N/G and the laptop is only G( for which I believe bandwidth is 54Mb/s).

That seems to be my only guess, originally I thought maybe the router itself was G, but then I realized you had it connected via wire to the Access Point.

Sorry I can't be of more help.. but that seems like the first possibility that popped to my mind.

EDIT: I really wish I had good enough internet service to make this a possible problem XD.

My laptop was set to N(20/40Mhz) and the Access Point was also set to accept only N(20/40Mhz) connection. Windows reported that my wireless connection speed was ~200Mbps. It vary from 160Mbps - 240Mbps. Thats why I don understand why it cannot handle the 100Mbps internet speed.

This is average speed for N @ 300. The two previous posters are talking about "connection rate" and not "throughput rate".

Example: 802.11g can have a max connection rate of 54 megabits. In theory the max throughput is 21 megabits. In actual testing we see anywhere from 14 to 17 megabit throughput.

Now routers are different in the way they do their compression so there is a range out there for 300 "connection rate" 802.11n. Hit Google to find other routers like yours, and look for throughput speeds.

Edit:
Here is a good page with some testing on it.
