Wireless router limited internet speed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey guys, I got the Asus RT N10+ B1

I have 150mbps download and it seems the maximum my router allows me is 40 mbps through the wired connection. Why is it limiting it? Is the router not strong enough to handle 150mbps?

That's a pretty low end router.

I would also imagine the bandwidth from your provider isn't anywhere near 150 mbps, but you are simply quoting the link speed from the wireless NIC to the router's access point.

thanks for replying

I get around 140 mbps download from speedtest when I directly go through modem, so I think my ISP is ok. Its only with router its limited to 40mbps wired.

you reckon, if I get a much better router, it would improve?

Sounds good then, a unit that isn't the cheapest one you can find should allow you to use the entirety of your bandwidth package.
