    Hey everyone, I have my new Macbook Pro wirelessly connected to my Linksys WRT150N, while my PC (running Windows XP SP3) is connected through wired.

    I originally had dd-wrt on the router, but took it off due to the signal would randomly drop. Now that I have the original firmware back installed, the transfer rate is painfully slow. Just trying to transfer any type of media it goes about a MB per min.

    Is there anything I can try to change on my Mac or my router?

    Why can't you transfer using another ethernet cable?

    On Airport Extreme Base Station, I can typically transfer over wireless N, slightly under 1GB a minute from another wired Mac on the network with gigabit ethernet.

    Note that many of the N routers have problems with their firmware (AEBS works great though). You probably want to try to update the firmware to the latest official one.

    Maybe there is signal interference from neighbors, microwave, etc.
