Same speed over mobile as LAN

February 5, 2016 at 16:29:25
Specs: Windows 7, 2ghz
When i connect my laptop to the LAN wire it gives me a local transfer speed of around 10mbits per sec over the sharing network but when i connect the wire to the router it would give me 600 kbs per sec or less. although my router is capable of transferring 150 mbits per sec over the network through WiFi.
i know there is something like port forwarding but i don't know how to use it.

any help?

Your post is not receiving any replies I guess because it's a bit unclear.
May be able to help you if you explained it more clearly.

"when I connect it to LAN wire" & "when I connect it to router" is the confusing part.

To me they are both the same thing, the LAN wire comes from the router (unless you've got some unusual sort of setup).

I recently ( a week ago) acquired a 40 mpbs connection. The connection is provided via a LAN cable, without any modem.
However, I've faced this issue since the beginning: I get 40 mbps of speed through LAN cable (as tested on but the moment i connect via wifi, the speed drops to 20 mbps, and fluctuates wildly, often dropping to 1-2 mbps, so i can hardly browse. I figured that the issue might be with the NETGEAR N150 router, and I called network support specialist, who tried to configure the router, but to no avail. I then contacted NETGEAR CC, who were similarly unable to help, despite a lot of modifications to the router configuration.
I then ordered a new router (TP-LINK N300), but (you guessed it) same problem. The ISP is saying that it is not an issue with their end, as a direct connection gives the promised speed.
I tried configuring the router(s) in a hundred different ways (Channel 1, 6, 11, Auto; MTU size 1454, 1492, 1500; Dynamic IP, PPPoE; WEP, WPS) but nothing works. I placed it all over the house, but everywhere the issue is the same.

Your LAN connection is FULL DUPLEX meaning transmitting and receiving simultaneously

Wi-Fi technology is HALF-DUPLEX meaning transmitting or receiving at the time.

You will never get the same speed over WIFI as over LAN
