Just upgraded to 50Mg for an extra $10 a month! The only thing that got faster was the money depating my bank! My internet speed has dropped! **bleep** service...changing to comcast...cant be worse.
Are you sure they made the change on their end...sometimes it takes a few days.
I've a similar problem. The speed won't go over 27 mps when i try connection through the wifi router and i'm sitting right next to it. I get the same speed in the next room so not sure if interference is a problem. Converting to WPA2 didn't help either.
Another thing i noticed is the 'green connectivity' bars on my laptop go amber once in a while. At that point my remote desktop connection disconnects and i've to redo the remote desktop connection all over. Its a painfull process to reconnect.
It would be great if someone could tell us what we need to do to get 50 bps

Thanks for the reply!
I read through the post. Here is the summary of what i need to do
1] Run on WPA2
2] Use routers rev F and above.
I completed step 1.
I see that my wireless router is Rev E. Why did Verizon give be a Rev E when i asked for 50mbps and the installation happened a month back?
Is this some evil plan to get all new customers to upgrade? 🙂
Please let me know what my options are.
My service plan says Verizon FiOS QuantumSM 50/25 Mbps Internet.
I just spoke to a tech rep on the phone. He claimed that hardware encryption plays no role in boosting speed.
He was ready to ship me another Rev E router just in case the new one worked.
Is it that the phone reps don't get/want to read forum posts?
