SPEED THROUGH ROUTER HAS NEVER BEEN CLOSE TO ADVERTISED...

I have had FIOS for 4 years and for that time I had 35/35 speed.  However 22-23 is the max I have ever gotten.  I have signed up for the new 50/25.  Results are exactly the same or worse.  The latest results on Verizon's test are:

What exactly am I paying for?  this is pathetic.

Are you wired or Wireless.  Note that the speeds you are talking about are typical for Wireless-G connections.

Of course I'm wireless.  Why else would I need a router?

I really don't care how it performs hardwired since I never intend to use it that way.  Either this system can achieve advertised speeds or it can't.  If not then where are the disclaimers saying "only when hardwired" and then only maybe depending on, blah, blah, blah.

All over the Internet and Verizon's speed test site:

Directly implies Wired connection. It's an age old fact about Wireless G not being able to obtain much beyond 20Mbps in real life conditions. You'll need Wireless N (or AC... when it comes out of Draft) to get 50Mbps/25Mbps or anything higher than what G can do.

 

I'm in a datacenter at the moment, and we only use Wireless A and G here. It's a brand new building, but you cannot get more than 25Mbps out of any of the many, many APs available for use. On Ethernet? You can go to hundreds of megabits a second if you're on the right ports.

you probably just need to pick up their new router.

 

the one you have works fine with the service when hardwired.  but to get faster wireless, you'll need the N router
