Channel = Auto
Mode = Up to 450 Mbps
Is there a setting that I am not configuring correctly?
Using inSSIDer, it says the router has set my 2.4GHz network to Channel=9 with a max rate of 216Mbps. The router has set my 5GHz network to Channel=157+161 with a max rate of 450Mbps. With my old WNDR3700, the router set my 2.4GHz network to two channels with a max of 300 as it did my 5GHz network. Does the WNDR4500 assigning only 1 channel to the 2.4GHz decrease its advertised speed? If so, how do I get it to assign 2 channels to my 2.4 GHz network?

I had an old WNDR 3500L which reached 300 without problems using two channels on 2.4Ghz but the WNDR 4500 does not use two channels.

inSSIDer correctly reports my WNDR4500 2.4GHz band at 450 but the lil laptop I ran this on, a five year old Acer Aspire with a Atheros AR50007EG wireless card only links at 54 -- which is all the AR5007EG is physically capable of.
It would be nice if inSSIDer could make this lil PC run at 450, though!

inSSIDer can only read a data signal and the max speed of the router has gotta be imbedded there somewhere, just like the modem's name is. On a PC hardware is only capable of 54M connect speeds the 450M really means nothing.
I don't think inSSIDer is measuring anything, just reading data.
