DIR-636L WiFi Speed on 1000 Mbps Gigabit Line
« on: September 02, 2014, 09:34:55 AM »

Hey there, I have a 1000 Mbps Gigabit Connection.

I tested the speed through direct cable and it goes up to 450 Mbps which is around 55 MB/s download speed, meaning everything is good since I don't have a SSD (I have a standard HDD 7200 RPM).

However, when i tested the speed on WiFi, it doesn't go past 55 Mbps.I'm not asking for the "up to 300 Mbps" (N300) but it should go at least close to 100 Mbps.

It's exactly the same speed that I had before upgrading to 1000 Mbps, meaning that 7 MB/s download is as high as it goes even with the 1000 Mbps line.

Any ideas?

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under router.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

ISP speeds on WiFi may differ from actually connection rates. Connection rates such as 300Mb are actual connection rates between the router and the wireless devices. Check the Status/Wireless for connection rates. You'll never see actual 300Mb file xfer speeds on WiFi. At most I've ever seen is about 20Mb actual. ISP speed testing over wireless isn't really recommended as there are many variables and factors that can cause inaccurate results. Wired LAN testing is preferred.

"Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link Wireless N devices."
