Specs: Win 7 pro 64bit, 8gb
I had my dsl internet upgraded from 10megs to 25megs and they gave me a new router before I got it my wireless internet worked at full speed like I have one wireless n modem that runs at 150mbs and another wireless n modem that runs at 300mbs both of which ran at full speed before they gave me this new router now one runs at 72mbs and the other at 144mbs and I can't firgure out how to get them back to running at full speed.

I don't know what kind of router it is but it's big and has two Antenna's one on each end the one I had before they left with me is very small and doesn't have any antenna and they said encase you want to go back to using it. Any ideas.

My first port of call would be the people who gave me the "new" (super duper) router; Ask them to explain the how and the why; and then to resolve things to be as before - to restore the speeds appropriately.

The olde maxim "if ain't broke don't fix it" comes to mind here... Clearly something wasn't broke and they "phyxed it"... So request they "fix it " again as this time "it is broke..."

Are you transferring files across the network to another machine and noticing a drop in speed?

Unknown has caused an error in unknown and unknown needs to restart.

I'm not transferring files between computers on my network I'm talking about the speed of my wireless modems they were working at full speed til they gave me a larger router seems they should run faster with my upgrade but instead it cuts my wireless speeds in half. I only have one computer hooked direct to the router my download speed is about the same but when I have a wireless modem that is suppose to connect at 300mbs I want it to run at full speed. I still don't get what causes it to cut my speed in half it was suppose to be faster not slower.
