WiFi speed lower than LAN speed - WGR614 N150

Hi,

 

I have a Netgear N150 wireless router (WGR614 v10).

My internet connection is a 100mbps connection and I am able to get this speed over LAN but not over WiFi. Over WiFi I'm getting around 30-40mbps.

 

Router wireless settings are below

Channel: Auto

Mode: Up to 150mbps

Security Option: WPA2-PSK [AES]

 

Any idea how I can get higher speeds over WiFi?

 

Best,

Sam

Your WiFi is ding pretty good. Always WiFi slower than wired connection due o overheads like signal  level, etc.

I'd find a quiet chnnel for and use that one.

In addition, your device's Wi-Fi adapter could be the bottleneck. 30-40 Mbps is pretty typical for a device with a single antenna. You could potentially double your speeds by using a 40 MHz channel but it's very unneighborly and frequently inconsistent in the presence of many Wi-Fi networks. You could upgrade to a dual antenna adapter. This will also double your speed. Or, if the existing adapter already supports 802.11ac, then replace the router with a 802.11ac router.

Are you sure about the model (WGR614 v10)? That's a 802.11g, not a 802.11n, router so it can't be a N150.

802.11g usually peaks at about 21 Mbps, so I'm gonna that you are mistaken.

BTW, one other option is to upgrade both clients and the router to dual band 802.11n. It'll be slightly cheaper than 802.11ac. A single antenna client can get up to 65 Mbps at 5 GHz. A dual antenna can get double that speed.
