So I have a linksys e3200 dual band router. First of all my internet speed is 35MB down and 8Mb up, when I'm connected through ethernet I actually reach those speeds. My laptop is the only device I have that connects to the 5ghz band and I'll get about 27-28 mB tops but on the 2.4ghz band I'll be lucky to get 18-19 tops. Now, I understand that you might lose a little speed on WiFi but my only question is why did I just come from my friends house (which has qwest DSL with the Q1000 modem 35MB as well) and ran a 36.66 on the speedtest app for my phone, The highest I ever got was 18 on my WiFI at home. Is the Q1000 modem that much better than my E3200 linksys? Is there some settings I have messed up? I just don't get why his WiFI is allowing him to reach his full 35MB and mine isn't?

Bob, that was amazingly gentle. I cringe and smile whenever I see such a subject line.

Chris, joining this forum without noticing it is about woodworking routers leads me to believe that a bit of laughter is justified. Even so we always try to help people.
