Since the last update to my TC (7.3.2) the wireless download speed has degraded to almost a tenth of the speed I used to get (testing through speedtest.net, ~10,000kbps to ~1,000kbps!).

This renders my TC almost entirely useless; streaming any media is a waste of time and forget doing a backup over wireless.

Having read the many posts on this forum; I've tried everything from disabling WDS for my AE, changing the mulitcast rate and the wireless channel. None of them have done anything.

However, disabling security has. I'm now getting ~10,000kbps again. I've tried switching between WPA and WEP and both result in terrible download rates.

This is far from ideal, but it does go towards fixing this mess - I hope. For now at least I can secure my network by MAC and disable broadcasting of my SSID.

Anyone else having issues give this a try and post your results.

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
