    Hi there,

    I've got a new Netgear WNR3700 and rigged up the 2.4GHz and 5GHz APs. Both work and I've set both to up to 300Mbps and the 5GHz AP delivers 300Mbps over a shorter range than the 2.4GHz, but the 2.4GHz AP links at 130mbps according to network utility.

    Can I infer from this that my Santa Rosa can't handle channel coupling or is there a way to get 300mbps at 2.4GHz?

    Come on, somebody must have something to say on the subject?

    I have the same router, and just checked for you...my 5ghz runs at 300 Mbit/s and the 2.4ghz is running at 144 Mbit/s. But I do have some G devices connected to the 2.4ghz which I think might be slowing it down...

    Hmmm, thing is I haven't got any G devices on there, just the MBP connecting to it.

    I hope bumping isn't too frowned upon, because that's exactly what I'm doing. Sorry. :-/
