- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- Host router: TP-Link WR841ND 300Mbps Wireless N Router. ---> Emulator
- Repeater: D-Link DIR-300 54Mbps Wireless G Router ---> Emulator
Scenario: I have already flashed the DIR-300 with DD-WRT firmware successfully and set it up as a repeater. The mode I'm using is "Client Bridge". I'm also getting a full 5-bar signal.
Problem: I'm subscribed to 10 Mbps package from the ISP. I am only getting around half the speed or less from my DIR-300 repeater (anywhere between 2 to 5 Mbps) . On the other hand, I am able to get full 10 Mbps speed from the host TP-Link router when I'm near to it. Is this because I'm using a 54 Mbps wireless G router? Is there a way to fix that to get full 10 Mbps speed? Please enlighten me.
Alternative solution if the above cannot be fixed:
If I purchase the TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal WiFi Range Extender, will this provide full 10 Mbps speed?
