Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
I have the same problem. I tested the internet download speeds wired and wirelessly and see a loss of 4 mbps with wireless hook-up. I called Motorola also and they suggested the same thing, change channel raise modem. I didn't see a marked improvement and may take the item back if I can't get the speeds closer to 10 mbps. The range also seems less than my last router from Netgear.
Wireless conection will only run as fast as your slowest device. i.e.
802.11 only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps.
802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps.
802.11g supports bandwidth up to 54 Mbps.
802.11n connections should support data rates of over 100 Mbps.
So if you are running a mixed network with lets say a 802.11b wifi card on a laptop and a new laptop with 802.11n, your speed will only be that of the 802.11b card.
I hope that helps.
