    Hello,

    I just bought a Airport Extreme Gen 3 of eBay and I got a 200/200 mbps connections and when i plugin ethernet cable i get the speed i expect, but when i go wireless i only have 60-ish mbps on 4 different devices, i believe that it should be doing a least 100 mbps. What can i be doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Ive been using a 3rd gen AES for a few months

    Using wifi only I get the expected 30MBps

    Cant think how you wold could be doning anything wrong

    maybe try connecting via ethernet to test the speed

    The router is rated at 300 mbps and I would expect it to do at least 100 mbps, but I only get something like 60 mbps. As i said above when i plugin ethernet cable everything is fine.
