I know on my macbook pro I've never really seen if it was on N or not. But it's an N computer and I have one of the best N routers on the market. Reliable and fast so I've never looked that far into it.

Re: Wireless N on Froyo
I have 3 access points at the house, one on the business side and 2 on the residential side. They are N WiFi networks but one in the res side is 5ghz and both my phones and notebooks don't see that one.
The 5ghz one is used to provide a network to the back of the tv area, something it does quite well but nothing else can see it.

I have a Linksys wrt150N router. If I put the router on mixed, my download speeds are 1300 kbs. If I use G, I get 14,000 - 15,000kbs, and the range has been much better since upgrade to 2.2. I thought I could use mixed, but it just didn't work right. I do get better range and speeds than before, so I am happy.
Also, wireless G is 54mbs, wireless N is up to 300.

Plus the N has different benefits even though with the phone it's only at 54mb. Such as range and reliable connection.
This is what my router tells me.
Mode Up to 270Mbps at 5GHz & 54Mbps at 2.4GHz

Yes your connection is good. Your speed comes from your DSL or cable company or whatever you have.
You have a 15mb connection with a 2 mb upload. That is more than enough for most stuff man. These days if you have more than 15mb connection you don't really need it. Unless you're a business and running multiple computers and devices. But if it's just you and the internet alone then that's a really good connection.
Not many people actually have a 54mb connection like I said. Maybe a business but not many residential areas are gonna have anything near that. Although in some areas they are testing and do have higher connections than most.
I have a 20mb download connection. And a 6mb upload connection. So I have a slightly faster download than you have and a lot faster upload. But honestly most stuff doesn't take up that kinda speed so you wouldn't tell much difference in yours or mine unless maybe uploading a video.
Mine sometimes gets up to around 26mb. And I only pay 19.99 a month for it!
But in the future we will have 1 GB connections.

The numbers most people are talking about are the internal network speed...
When you connect a wireless laptop to a wireless router and it says something like "Connected Signal Strength Excellent, Speed: 54Mbps"... It doesn't mean you're getting 54Mbps on the internet, you're only getting a 54Mbps connection between your WiFi device and router...
Well, I think I figured it out. I called Verizon who transfered me over to an HTC rep who was very unhelpful to say the least. The girl on the phone had no clue what she was doing or talking about. She told me that I needed to turn off Wireless N so I could see it????? Well after messing around with things, my dual band Netgear router will only transmit dual band if wireless G is in the 2.4Ghz range and the N is in the 5Ghz range. When I had the N transmitting in the 2.4Ghz range all was good, but not in the 5Ghz range. So I have to assume that the Dinc doesn't have the capabilities of 5Ghz wifi even though the clueless HTC rep said it did.

Wireless N and earlier. Dual band 2.4 and 5GHz. Mixed encryption. Cisco E3000... flawless and faster for me. I'm running an average 1.5Mb/s download on torrents and seeing great speeds on the wifi from the android at the same time. Some might note that the internet connection has to match the route speed too.

I have comcast. Which differs in different areas. In some areas comcast can be CRAP and not be a good ISP at all. In other areas Comcast can be really reliable and have good people working as technicians.
I think the advertised speed for my package is 16mb download. But I actually get 20 to 25. Which is the case with them most of the time. They give more than advertised.
You do have a 250GB cab though but there's no reason to worry about that. If you have cable you probably already have a cap. Most people do and don't even know it. But I can't hit 250GB. And that's with streaming HD netflix on my ps3, heavy internet use and a lot of HD youtube and other video websites. Still I've never even hit 100GB.

I just think that it was sad that I figured this out on my own and the HTC rep I talked to on the phone told me that the Dinc "should work" in the 5ghz range. She had no clue.
