I didn't lend it out until months after Beta. Just think of it as spreading the good name of Dlink. He is now a happy customer. And BTW...shhh  :P

As for the OP, Any word? I think the wireless is downgrading to a lower G band because of another device on the network. Or there is some kind of interference.

So I was able to do some testing this evening using my roomies xbox 360 slim w/on board wireless and found the following:
Wifi Setting were Mixed G and N and Single mode N. WPA2 only and AES only. Auto 20/40Mhz and Scan. Less than 10ft distance from router and xbox in same room.












Looks like the 857 and 865L is also exhibiting the same thing.

I guess I'll get this into DLink for the 857.

If anyone else has a 827/857/865 router, I recommend posting your results here and or phone contact DLink directly. Please keep us posted on this.

Hey Guys,

With my 657, FW 1.01, and XBOX Slim 5 inches away, it connects at 65MB.

With my 857, FW 1.00 it connects at 11MB.

With my 865L FW 1.01 it connects at 5MB.

Slomar, is your WMM Enable grayed out and enabled by chance? It is on the 857 and I can't get it ungrayed out. It was mentioned to test with WMM Disabled to see if the rate changed or not.

I've emailed DLink and forwarded this on to my contact at DLink. Hope this will be resolved for some of these routers.

I got a email back from DLink this morning. Said to go into Firewall settings and disable RTSP, save settings and make sure Enable WMM is checked and enabled and test. Of course, on the 857, it's checked as enabled however it's grayed out. Also said to ensure Multi-cast Streaming is enabled under Advanced/Advanced Networking. I'll have to check this out later. Said to run a test on speedtest.net on a laptop.  ???

Can anyone else check and verify if this helps?

I found this thread over on the Xbox forums. Note someone said someone had the same issue with the Netgear.

Also I looked through these forums, offically moderated by Xbox, and for every router, they suggest changing the Wireless mode to G only. And I quote:

"The reason we recommend switching to wireless-g only is that for most routers, wireless-g is far more stable than wireless-n.  Unless you are streaming HD movies through something like media sharing then you generally don't need wireless-n."

So I wonder if they know something we don't. And I suspect this is more a issue with Xbox 360 S and N connections then it has anything to do Dlink. Not to say the discussion belong here, but I wonder if we should be contacting Microsoft and not Dlink. Thoughts?

Also, 11Mb also happens to be the exact cap of Wifi-b. Not sure if that is related, but 11b seems like a weird cap if it was like a physical problem with the wireless.

Thanks for sharing Harry. Good info.

Well back a few years ago when the DGL-4500 was the rage, we saw that using G mode was best and seem to work well for gaming via Wireless. However, since the advent of N and adapters for Xbox and the built in ones seen in the slims, you would think that N could be recommended, specially over 2.4Ghz. They even made a dual band xbox WiFi USB adapter that works on 5Ghz and does work well. I guess i'll test that adapter tonite however I don't think I'll see the same results as with the built in Slims.

And I'm also not seeing this on other model DLink routers either; 4500, 657, 655 and 645. Only the 3 I tested from the 8 series. I still kind of think that this is an issue with the 8 series FW or with the xbox or a combination of the two. I'm leaning towards FW. OR maybe the Xbox Slim?  :-\

My 2 cents.

I did a some testing to verfiy if the RTSP setting enabled or disabled would help, the router still reports 11Mb connection rate.

However testing Single mode G reports the following:


I installed the MS Xbox USB WiFi adapter on the slim it reported the following using Single mode N:


I powered up my DIR-825 and used the on board WiFi on the slim and it reported the following:


Seem like there is something going on with the newer gen 8 Series routers or the WiFi that these newer routers have and the onboard Xbox 360 slim WiFi.

I wonder if it does this on the PS3?  Is the PS3 wireless N?
