Thinking of getting 24 meg broadband

Would I benefit from a n class router. Would it speed up my down/up speeds, I'm pretty sure all it does is just allow faster wireless connections between devices at home compared to G class routers. Would my g class router be able to accept upto 24 meg speed, I currently have an 8 meg connection, speedtest.net gives download rates of 9.50 mb/s and 0.70 mb/s uploads.

wireless N would only increase your network speed, G and N wuold be the same for 24Mb coming in

Thank's for confirming. ~Chuckles~

Trust me it isn't, I have 18.5meg at home and a G router, with the G router next to my PC with a 100% connection, wireless I get 1200kb/s download, wired I get 1850kb/s which is an absolutely huge difference.


Seems weird, you'd get more speed with it being wireless rather than wired in my opinion.

that might be something to do with your router, i had wireless router and got 2mg downloads, my wireless G run at 125mbs and now i use wireless N and get the same speeds still 2mb downloads and i have a 20mb connection

also running a gigalan over Wireless N is more then 3 times faster, if thats what you mean?

It isn't, I saw the same thing at my dads with a diff router, wireless is poor in comparrison to wired.

Yeah my point was N should help to reduce that difference.


I agree, with this point, but what is your wireless client as 100% doe snot always mean 100% a lot of them lie, I dont think OP was talking about wired comparison thou, i think he meant are wireless G and wireless N are the same if connected at 100% wirelessly to a 24Mb internet connection, nothing to do with a wired connection lol

I saw in a later post he spoke about wired BTW not in the first thou

I have 20Mb connection and on Wireless G, I got 2Mb downloads when i was connected at 125Mb with 100% connection. I then upgraqded to Wireless N and still got 2Mb downloads when i was connected at 100% connection, it did increase my netowrk speed a lot hou

I just about managed to get full speed from a 20 Mbit connection using 54G.

Since I changed to N I get not far off 100Mb speeds over my internal network.

Unless you are going to get the full 24Mbit speed from your provider I would have thought the difference would be negligible.

+1 this is what i am saying lol

The only difference you would get is that Wireless N has to have 3 aerials so you would get less packet loss between N & G but as long as your internet connection is not over 54Mb you will see no difference over wireless

G+ vs N is not the issue here. both can carry 24Mb easily. To test the speed of the connection, you should plug into the router to test. far too many variables with wireless to affect the connection speed.

The speed of the processor and memory in your router will cause huge changes in speed.

Buy a good quality router and look at the processor and memory. Don't put a cheap cable on it and keep it close to where the data line comes into the house.

For the wireless side, N has obvious benefits, range, speed and reliability. but it may be overkill for what you need. if you look at a wireless N 5Ghz router then you'll avoid more interference, but nothing will connect by default and you'll have to buy a whole load of new adaptors. or you get a "Dual Band" router which does 2.4 and 5Ghz but all the 2.4Mhz devices will contend with bluetooth, cordless phones and all manner of radio comms.
