wndr3400 v2 wireless.....


Succesfully installed dd-wrt firmware and setup as an AP via a homeplug. However for some reason the wireless speed is attrocious. The web pages load eventually at pre dial-up speeds. Have tried changes channels a various other things i can think of to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

Definitely not an expert but,

Definitely not an expert but, this post http://superuser.com/questions/786039/slow-internet-speed-when-homeplug-combined-with-router, gave me some insight with a similar issue. I used homeplugs to connect a router in my garage and got 1-2 mbps speeds , directly connecting a laptop to homeplug upped it to 5-10 mbps. I eventually hired an electrician for ~$175 bucks to TS  for excess line noise (needed a 220 outlet installed for a plasma cutter anyway). End result was redoing the main ground for the home now  I get 50-60mbps via direct connecting to plug and 35-50 mbps via the router (wired or wireless).  As a huge surprise my electric bill has dropped about  $10 a month on average over about 8 months.    Also I always get better results when avoiding if possible any circuits that also run appliances/ ACs.
