Hi, I bought the E1200 router recently and the speeds i've been getting over wireless is quite underwhelming... It's suppossed to be an N router so it should be able to support speeds of up to 300 mbps? I'm on fibre, and whenever I speed test over wireless i get only 30 down 20 up. Over Ethernet though, I get 66 down and 40 up. Also, wireless connection through the E1200 is quite unstable. Does anyone know why? Could Cisco be lying about the 300mbps thing?... Since there isnt gigabit ethernet, i'ld expect the HIGHEST possible internet speed over wireless to be 100 mbps then. However, i'm getting around half of my speed over wireless. WHY?!

I just recently upgraded from a WRT54G to an E1200 router and my internet connection has drastically slowed. I use to be able to watch HD videos on youtube without rarely having to wait for buffering on the wrt54g but now with the E1200 pages load slow and there's constant buffering when on youtube. I ran the speed test and on the E1200 and I can never surpass 0.7mbps down and 4.5mbps up, while on my wrt54g I would consistently reach speeds over 2.0+down. Does anyone know why I am achieving such slow speeds on my new router when my 6+year old wrt54g outperforms it? Any help is highly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi, I'm not sure if you are refering to your wired connection or your wireless connection. If you are having problems with the wired connection then that's not a goog thing. The 1st thing that you need to do is to isolate the problem by connecting the computer to the modem and try to run speedtest then check the upload/download speed. 2nd, if you were able to verify that you have fast connection from the modem then perhaps you can try to reset then reconfigure and update/reflash the firmware of the router. If you are having with the wireless connecting then perhaps the router's wireless settings of the router has not been properly configure, set the router's wireless settings to channel 9 on 20Mhz. Try also to check your network topology, check the distance of the computer to the router and if there are any wireless interference. If this does not improve the connection then perhaps you need to consider to update or reflash the router's firmware.

alexda - I had the exact same thing happen to me earlier this week (I even had the same WRT54G router before). I found the solution on another post on this forum, so I thought I'd register here so I could help you out. You need to disable WMM Support.
1) Got to your internet browser and access the router (192.168.1.1)
2) Click "Applications & Gaming"
3) Click the "QoS" tab on the far right under that
4) Change WMM Support (at the top) from Enabled to Disabled
I ran speedtest.net before that and was maxing out at about 1mbps. Immediately after that I was at 24.95. Has been working beutifuly ever since. Seems like a massive design flaw (or possibly just an issue with Comcast).

I'm having the EXACT same problem -> my WRT54G bit the dust so I thought I was upgrading when I bought the E1200 but my wireless connections are AWFUL! Any videos that I try to watch on my laptop or my daughter's iPhone are always stopping to buffer and now while watching movies on Netfix on the Wii they, too, are always 'reloading'. It's incredibly annoying! If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
