Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router
I had WRT54 before and the speed was always 54mps, now I got this WRT150, which suppose to be better, but the speed is now around 20mps and some times 1mps. I have set up the router and put password on it and my cable speed is 100mps. WHAT DO I DO?!!
Do not worry about it, mostly a firmware upgrade would fix this problem, try to download ur firmware version from linksys .com /downloads and upgrade it to the router , that would fix ur problem, or call 1800- 546-5797, linksys tech at the other end would help u to upgrade firmware and fix the problem, it not if u have any other w/ls devices in ur house ,mturn off them and then check,.

I installed the same router and had the same Poor Speed issue. I discovered, after much grief, the computers that are on the network have to support "WPA" security protocol to run at Full Speed. While my newer computer supports WPA my older machines (on the network) only support "WEP" (64 or 128 bit) a legacy security protocol. Since ALL the computers on the network have to have the same security settings in order to work, I had to Downgrade my computers setting to WEP and as a result, the performance is pretty lame. I now have to upgrade my older machines to WPA in order to enjoy the SPEED on the new Wireless N technology... Oh well, live and learn I suppose...
