My wired connection is fine.
The range is fine at 100% percent.
My wireless download speeds are horrible.
I haven't made any changes to any of the settings, since I don't know much about routers.
Any help is appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Open the router setup page and reduce the MTU to 1350 and click on save settings..Under the Wireless tab,Click on Advanced Wireless Settings...Change the Beacon Interval to 50,Change the Fragmentation Threshold to 2304,Change the RTS Threshold to 2304 and Click on Save Settings...
Power Cycle the router and check.

On your Router setup page, under the wireless tab below change the "Channel Width" and "Channel" to AUTO, then change the Wireless Security Mode to WPA Personal and then try to connect to your Wireless Network...
If that still not working, then i think you need to upgrade the firmware of your Router. You can download the firmware from the Linksys website and upload the firmware on it. Once the firmware is uploaded on your Router then you need to reset your Router and re-configure all the settings on it from scratch.

Thanks for the help. I have the same problem, tried your solution, but I'm still having a quite unpleasing experience with mine. I have the WRT160N ver. 3.0 with latest FW set to 5 GHz N-only. Still I can get only 20-30 mbps (2-3.5 MB/s on windows) top wireless speed out of it.
I have a NMH-410 which is wired to the router and I can get full 100 mbps when copying from/to it if I wire my notebook (Dell Inspiron 1525) to the router, but on the N wireless, even though it reports 144 mbps and strong signal, I can't get much more than the aforementioned 20-30.
Same with my Blu-ray (BDP-S570) which can't smoothly stream my 1080p/30 H264 home movies from it (from a Canon t2i/45 mbps).

Hi yenneannie and welcome to the forums!
You can access the router's set -up page by using a computer that is connected to the router via wire (best option for me) and open your Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. Type 192.168.1.1 and press enter, once it prompts you for a username please leave it blank (nothing) and use admin for the password.
