Tried the 5Ghz band for fun, the 552 def doesnt support or nor did my laptop for some reason but the Macs connected np.. also now back on the 2.4, my adapter is just dropping then connecting within 10sec. Weird! Download is 8mbs down and 7 up when earlier just after we did that it was 20-22mbs down and 7 up.. Wired is 30mbs down :(

What ISP Modem do you have Spencer? Make and model?
I would try and update the adapter card drivers. If your looking for a wireless adapter card or usb adapter, the DWA-160 does 5Ghz. I have 2 of them. Mac books generally support 5Ghz wifi.

Any cordless house phones?
Any other WiFi routers in the area? Use InSSIDer to find out.

Its a scientific atlanta 2100 docsis 2.0.. no house phones. Only 1 other visible network according to the adapter, sometimes 2. Im downloading that ssd software.. I also reset both the modem and router to factory defaults and am connected unsecured atm to test it.. Would just like to get a steady connection at this point. I think I will just make it invisible, all devices will still be able to connect right? Thinking bout their 2 iPhones and my Evo.. Thoughts?

Speedtest.net is not working for me so to test it atm Im using http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ which is telling me
Download Speed: 10347 kbps (1293.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 5501 kbps (687.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

which I'm kinda happy with considering its 1 source.. I was downloading at 2.4-3MBs sometimes.

Edit: I like this program I should have had both routers on to test network strength before I gave the 655 to my aunt lol

Check out some of the other speed testing sites listed in the Rource forum:Resource Library

Is this the modem your ISP have you to use?
One thing I highly recommend checking is the ISP Cable lines going from the outside in to the house and to the modem. Make thats in good condition. If there are any TV line splitters on it, these will lower the signal going to the modem, if a splitter is needed, use online one good quality one. Have the ISP make sure the signal going to the modem is correct.

I would highly recommend asking your ISP if they support Motorola SB 6 series  stand alone modems. These are good modems, I have tested 3 models out. All work well.
