    Hello

    I am trying to improve my internet speeds - I should be getting 60mb. I am currently getting 40mb. Via cable I get 60mb.

    Anyone know what settings I should have on the Airport extreme 1st generation (2007) or should i buy the newer model?

    You can try upgrading your security measures to WPA2 Personal. Also, fire up AirPort Utility 5.6 and enable "Use Wide Channels". That AirPort is getting long in the tooth, and the new ones are worlds faster. However, if this helps you out then continue with it.

    How do I use "wide channels" - What ones are these?

    Also - my version is 6.3.1
