    For those of you who have a Xbox 360 Slim and a 11n router, what are your download speeds?

    For some dam reason I can't get over 400KB/s while connected to a 11n network, yet I'm able reach full speed's on 11g (more details Here).


    P.S. Mod's please don't move this to the Console gaming sub-fourm as it's about networking, not games.

    It seems the 360 is only negotiating a connection rate of 5.5Mbps with the Access Point.

    If I go into the routers console and execute "wl rate 54" it will temporally bring my download speeds up to 2MB/s. (The rate command only supports up to 54 but I'm sure I could get up to 3MB/s if I could go higher. - FYI it seems 3MB/s is the max you can get from Microsoft's servers.)

    Unfortunately that is not a real solution. Now I really have to get a second Xbox to test, and a third N router as well, because if this effects other 360's I have to prove it to Microsoft and get them to fix it. God damnit.

    Are you doing any security on your router? WEP, WPA? Try WPA2.

    Believe it or not this is actually a 360 Slim hardware problem. It doesn't negotiate the correct Link Rate with some routers.

    There is a 15 page thread on SmallNetBuilder in which someone was kind enough to point out to me - http://forums.smallnetbuilder.com/showthread.php?t=7774

    Oh and so far I've tried 3 routers:
    • RT-N16 - Working (Full N speeds)
    • RT-N66U - Not Working (5.5Mbps link, 400KB/s Download)
    • 2012 AirPort Express - Not Working (11Mbps link, 800KB/s Download)
