FAQs

How do I get 450 Mbps?

To get 450 Mbps you need to optimize your settings and ensure you have an adapter compatible with 3x3. Consult your adapter or laptop vendor to see if the client radio is capable of 450 Mbps. If not, the link speed will be 300 Mbps or 150 Mbps. Finally, set the channel width settings of the router and client to 40 Mhz and find the clearest available channel.
