It should be pointed out that unless you're on fibre optic, your broadband "pipe" plays a huge role in your speed and is considerably slower than the max capability of 802.11n.

In other words, you only get "N's" top speed when transferring data between computers on your own network, NOT from the ISP's connection to your house.

I'm currently using a "G" router, and here's what I'm getting on a 10Mbit up/.5Mbit down connection:



When I had an "N" router, I got the same results -- because I'm already going as fast as my "pipe" provides.
