I just bought the latest AE base station dual band, but am having trouble with the speeds. We have on the network:
1 macbook pro, 1 windows pc, 2 ipads, 1 ipad mini, 1 kindle fire, 2 iphones, 2 ipods (wow we have a lot of products I just realized now that I am writing them all down) a Wii console and 1 mac desktop computer. Oh and I have an airport express in another room set up to extend the netowrk.
Not all of them are on the network simultaneously.
Using the Airport utility (windows version) I have set up the network trying different configurations. Currently I have it set up as:
Radio mode: automatic
Radio channel selection: automatic
wireless security: WPA2 Personal
network options are 5 Ghz is unchecked
country is US
multicast rate: low
transmit power: 100%
WPA Group Key Timeout: 2 hours
use wide channels is checked
All devices can connect to the net, but speeds are at old dial up levels and that of course was NOT my intention in getting the latest router.
Any advice from those who understand things like multicast rate?
