I use a wrt54(8 years old) as my wireless access point and only get about 20 Mbps tops on iPhone and iPad. Any recommendations for a router or access point(disable DHCP on router) that will improve the speed to what I have on wire with some ability to penetrate 100 year old lathe walls okay?
If you're getting 20Mpbs on the 'ol WRT54G, signal strength is a non-factor, and there's simply no need for current high-end solutions; you're simply capped by limitations of old hardware horsepower and the 802.11g standard.https://amzn.com/B0088CJT4U
The N750 TP-Link is only $49 on Amazon.
Even outside of throughput specs, want to be blown away by how far routers have come? Your old Linksys probably has 8MB RAM. The $49 TP-Link has 128MB RAM.
