    Do you have any other devices connecting to the router? Especially none-n ones?

    OK but your brothers computer is not connected is it? N routers slow to G speed if there are any G devices connected, perhaps even detected...

    The pre-N Belkin is not the same as Draft N.
    Pre-n was abandonware. It was essentially 802.11g++ with more than one channel going at once. It will not work at anything other than 802.11g rates with your mac.

    Sell the router. Buy an Airport Extreme (n)
