I have an Xtreamer media player and a Windows 7 laptop connected wirelessly to a DLINK DIR-615 router. When I try to transfer a large file from the media player to my laptop the tranfer rates are ~1MBps. Unusable.
- Both hosts are connected in 802.11n mode with signal strength in the 50-60% range.
- Router Config: Wifi router configure for 802.11n only. The card on my laptop doesn't have a similar option so it is set to the default b/g/n mode.
- Router Config: Using WPA2 for security got me to ~1.2 - 1.5MBps.
- Router Config: Used a different Channel that the default of 6.
Internet searches reveal that there a lot of other tormented souls but no definite answers.
How can I increase the transfer rates over the LAN to at least 5-6 MBps?
