I went from a run of the mill Linksys 5 year old router that cost $70 new to a $170 Asus RT-N66U a few months ago.  Reason for my upgrade was to get better speed across house as my ISP service is strong.  I've messed with the settings per a few google searches off legitimate websites, bought InSSIDer to make sure I'm far from the channels of my neighbors, and split my devices on the dual-bands, putting the more demanding ones on 5 GHZ.  Bottom line is, this thing is slow as [bleep] and I can't figure it out.  For example, I just downloaded, one room away, a 30 MB app from Itunes, took 3 minutes to finish.  It should be doing 1 GB in 5 minutes.  My direct to the cable modem speed is 32 down/8 UP so it's not my ISP like I once thought. 


Any idea on some sure fire settings I can check to blast through this?  I'd estimate it's running about 2-3 MB/Sec Download right now via wireless devices, Apple TV is struggling to buffer even.  


Model of Router is RT-N66U Dark Knight Dual Band Router by Asus.

Hey there Nalinc23,


I'm sorry no one was able to attend to your question just yet. Are you still in need of help?


If so, please let me know and I will do my best to explain a thing or two about WiFi. (WiFi can be very complicated when dealing with several elements)
