since over 2 years i'm using a Asus WL-500gP with DD-WRT without Problems.
Last week a brought a Buffalo WHR-G300N to have more WLAN-Speed
I´ve installed BS 12966 on it.
First it went fine (1-2h), but after a while the WAN (Internetspeed) over WLAN is very very slow.
a normal website is loaded in 4-5min.
This issue is only on WLAN. On LAN i got a normal downstream (about 1MB/s). So it's not a problem with my ISP.
The strange thing of it is, when the WAN over WLAN is slow and i am downloading something over WLAN <-> LAN i got 9-10MB/s. Which is very fast.
Reboot of Router or Laptops has no effects.
After a while the WAN-Speed gets normal.
I hope you can understand my issue.
I`ve got 3 machines:
1x DELL XPS Laptop (N - IntelWiFi 4965AGN), newest Driver, Windows 7, with WAN Problems
1x Samsung Laptop (G - Intel Wireless 3945ABG), newest Driver, Windows 7, with WAN Problems
1x Media PC (1000MBit Intel LAN), Windows XP SP3, without WAN Problems
I didn`t configured a lot (only PPoE for ADSL and WLAN WPA2-AES).
I Hope you can help me.
Thanks for the great work!!
Edit: a 30-30-30 reset didn't solve the problem :(
The Download works for a while and then it breaks together

Are the latest drivers for your intel wireless cards from INTEL or from Microsoft?
See if Intel has released some Windows 7 drivers for those.
I'm betting its the drivers.
I've used wireless-N adapters on Windows Vista with no issues or loss of speed.
If you have the slowdown again, try and do this.
Goto the network adapters under Device manager.
Disable the wireless adapter, wait about 1 minute.
Re-enable the wireless adapter.
If it works fine again @ good speeds, then its definitely the driver and/or the adapter, not the WHR-G300N _________________ Soylent Green Is People !
