So does this router use both g/n now with this firmware?  I am trying to get the best performance currently I have a 360 with the G wireless adaptor a laptop with a g wireless and a wii system.  What setting would give my router the best range and speed from everyone else experience.  I remember reading at one point that you should cut off channel auto scan?  I am looking to add a couple of N products soon just trying to optimize my current setup.

I have mine set to:

802 band: 2.4ghz
Auto Scan: Checked
Tranmission rate: Best
Channel Width: Auto

When I have it set to G or N and G, it connects at 130Mb and gives me about 32Mb of a 50Mb connection. When I set it to N only I still connect at 130Mb but get about 40Mb of a 50Mb connection. This is on a XP SP3 laptop with a Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN from about 3 feet away. Also, I have about 20-30 wireless networks in range, most of then FIOS Actiontec G networks, and my router usually scans and 4 and 8 as the best channels. Where you start having issues is when you start dropping below 60% signal strength. Try to use extrenal adapters or adapters with external antennas to keep your signal strength above that and it won't be as much of a issue, but as a whole I have no problems running my Ipod touch on G, PS3 on G and laptop on N. Most of the time I keep everything wired though. Hope that helps

Use the single G mode at 2.4Ghz as it has the best range. Once you had devices that can use N mode then go mixed G and N at 2.4Ghz. You can do 5Ghz however thats better in line of sight with out any walls or obstructions or if your like in the next room.
