I was wondering if anyone had any input on this situation. I have a WRT120N router, 1 computer hardwired to it, a laptop that connects via wireless and another computer that connects wireless. Both the laptop and the 3rd computer have wireless N network adapters, yet they are only getting wireless g signals from the router. The laptop connects at 54Mbps and the other computer is anywhere from 2-11 Mbps at any given time.

Now I have another laptop with wireless G that I dont use as much, but I still need occasionally so I can't set the router for only wireless G. I checked my router configuration and the network mode is set to mixed mode. When I go onto any of the computers and view available wireless networks it lists my network but the radio type is 802.11g. I also downloaded inSSIDER and did a scan and it also has me as a wireless G network. I changed my channel from 11 to 10 as a bunch of my neighbors were on 11(I live in an apt), but that didn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone walk me through getting my router to broadcast in wireless N like it should be?

If you think your router is not broadcasting in N mode, then you really need to contact the manufacturer's support people. Especially if it's still under warranty.

Since your neighbour is on channel 11, I would shift yours to 7 or 1 so there's no overlap. Putting yours on 10 is not much different than just leaving it on 11 from an interferance point of view.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
