I connect to my iPhone 3G during the day via a Linksys WRT160Nv2.

Video streaming on the iPhone is slower than it is on other routers and slower than it should be.

The current router is not dual-band. My previous one was, a D-Link, but it was up down, up down and irritated me in to swapping it for the Linksys.

How should I configure the Linksys to:

1. Maximize bandwidth to the iPhone for streaming video

2. Maximize bandwidth to the ethernet wired connection for streaming audio

3. Ensure maximum throughput to my brand spank-*** new MacBook Pro?

Thanks very much... and great forum!

I have the same problem as you with my iPhone 3G.

When loading a video in YouTube - say a music video - takes an age to fully download and you need to wait a minute before you hit play or it will stop ad need to rebuffer. Drives me round the bend as works fine on the Mac.

I use my ISPs (bSkyB) router - which I find to be really goof - so I'm interested in a answer here too!
