DrStrangelove:
Another thing, if you can remove all 802.11g devices from your network, you'll be improving overall WiFi access as WiFi panders to the lowest common WiFi device at the expense of other higher speed devices.


I understand that is only true on older b/g devices. mixing g with n doesnt affect things any more. dont quote me just what i remember hearing at one stage i think.

Scoobing: Just wanted to say a big thankyou for the help and advice. Have the V120 bridged to the N66U.

Line speeds have improved by about 25% and wireless performance is much better also.

My PS3 is working well but can I take advantage of the 5G band with a PS3 or will it only connect with 2.4G?

And don't forget if you want to ensure you have squeezed as much speed and reliablity as you can from your connection - make sure you have a master splitter installed :)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yes, that is my understanding too that the PS3 has a b/g wireless capability but no N

I would wire it or even powerline if I could but I'm in a sleepout on a different circuit I think (not sure how to check).

Anyway, since setting up with the Draytek V120 bridged to the RT-N66U everything has worked well.

  • Vastly improved wireless coverage throughout the entire property. 
  • 50% has gone to 80-90% signal on the PS3
  • Ping has halved
  • Line speeds have increased by 30% thanks to the modem
  • Great facilities on the router, guest networks, traffic monitoring, great web control interface.


Thanks again for helping me take the plunge with all this new kit - hard with so many reviews and schools of thought but, all working well.
