linksys e3000 pulling my hair out - Page 2

If it is only transmitting on the 20MHZ band that means the adapters connected to it can only use the 20MHZ band. I don't think it has to do with the router being faulty. It might be a driver issue on your wifi card, make sure you have the The latest driver.

the adapter has the latest atheros drivers for the dwa 556 (ar5008). i know that it connects to my dir 615 router using 40hz band. if this is so, then in thoery it should be using 40hz on the e3000 also right? maybe ddwrt is the solution after all. i have never used it but im willing to try just bout anything at this point.

Update:

made progress with the router, turns out the e3000 was faulty. would not xmit at 40hz band width, exchanged it for another model and hooked it up. with a little more light reading discovered that i need to enable wpa2 under wireless security tab "BEFORE" trying to change the mode to "N" only and then switch it to 20/40 mode. both laptops are now connecting a 300mbps with 99% signal on the 5gz band, the desktop on the 2.4 ghz band is all i have left for it is still connecting at 20hz but should be 40hz . wonder if another trip to the returns line will be better. oh and i have not updated firmware at all.

last post:

problem solved, btw linksys tech support is ignorant and tries to blow smoke up your arse. got all the setting right and was told by support that the 2.4ghz band was not designed to xmit on 40mhz. will only do 20mhz. then was told to look in the help screen where it read that is uses the 40hz mode for optimal performance. well they said they would talk to their lev 3 lead and never call me back ..lol egg on their face i suppose. but anyway the thing finaly connected at 40 on channel 3 for a few mins then dropped again to 130. a little reading in several forums points to a MIMO issue where in the tech likes to be confined around with several walls and solid objects around. wo i put it behind the bookcase up against the wall facing the wall and "bam" full speed stable all night.

thanks again to everyone for their help.
