Cool Maximum wireless speed with Superhub?

I have recently upgraded to 60MB from 30MB.
At 30MB my wifi speedtest gave me 30MB
Now at 60MB the best wifi speed I can obtain is 45MB.(early morning)
Is this the best I can expect from the Superhub?
I appreciate I can improve matters with the Superhub in modem mode.
My LAN speed is 62MB

Re: Maximum wireless speed with Superhub?

You should use inSSIDer to look at the channels other people are using to broadcast their networks and select the least congested range. I assume you're using a Wireless N adapter.

Interference from other people's networks and other 2.4GHz wireless devices saturates the frequencies which means that you get a lower throughput as a result, also, wireless is inefficient in itself, as the rated speeds are only achieved in labs where there are no environmental issues interfering, and then there's the overheads which take up the available bandwidth.

45MB is about what i'd expect to get from Wireless N in realistic usable bandwidth.

You can get more but it won't be easy on 2.4Ghz

Re: Maximum wireless speed with Superhub?

Wireless speeds sometimes drop off very fast with respect to distance to the AP.

That said, the superhubs wifi is naff anyway.
