      Sagecom F@st 2504N Transfer Speeds

      Hi I have just got the Sagemcom F@st 2504N. The problem I am having is that I can not get transfer speed’s above 72Mbps . My net work adapter is a Realtek RTL8191SE which should support better transfer speeds than 72 Mbps.

      The network adapters drivers are the latest and I have tried all alternative broadcast channels on the router .Innsider reports the routers max rate as 144n

      This router is turning out to be no better than my Sagemcom F@st 2304N which also gave me transfer speed of 72 Mbps .

      Thankfully I got for just over 15.00 new and unopened on Ebay and did not pay Sky 35.00 for it

      Any advice appreciated

      Have you checked in the router settings that it is using the highest possible mode?

      If it is try reinstalling the drivers with the latest available from here - Realtek I would try this whether you have the latest drivers or not.

      Hi thanks for your reply yes it is using the fastest possible mode.Also the Realtek site is where I obtained the latest drivers i have tried reinstalling them rolling back the drivers nothing seems to improve the transfer speeds.


      Is it likely to be the network adapter rather than the router

      It is possible that the adapter chipset is not fully compatible with the router. I have two adapters, a TPLink and a Dlink, the first connects to my Netgear at 54mbps and the second at 108mbps. It is a super G.

      Something I frogot to mention is that if you are using WEP, it will connect at a lower speed. Use WPA2-AES or WPA2-TKIP.

      Thanks for all your suggestions I had read somewhere else about changing the security settings , when I tried all the channels I had my network unsecured and still would not go above 72Mbps

      Sorry for coming in a little late on this thread, but the adaptor you have is what was originally in my own Laptop.

      You won't get it to connect at a faster speed on the Sky 2504N router than what you have achieved. The Sky router uses a single channel to achieve it's 144Mb/s connection speed.

      The most it will connect at is 150Mb/s on a router which uses paired channels (40MHz bandwidth).

      What you could do is to change the adaptor for one that supports 300Mb/s or get a different router which support 270 or 300Mb/s. A replacement adaptor will cost between 10 and 40. I went for one that supports both 2.4GHz & 5GHz channels, but the Sky router only works on 2.4GHz.

      Take a look at this link, but please double check that your WiFi adaptor is the same size as this one if you take this option:

      https://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Centr...1031432&sr=8-6

      another option would be this one, but I believe is it 2.4GHz only:

      https://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Wirel...1031432&sr=8-2

      There are other options around and I would strongly recommend that you double check everything before ordering a replacement card. I got caught with my other laptop as the first card I ordered had the wrong size aerial connectors.

      Thanks for all the help . I will look at changing the network adapter sometime .I am so glad I never paid 35.00 for the router only to find out it was no different to the one I already had.
