I'm on a public utility district fiber optics network. I'm using a LinkSys WRT54GL wireless router that maxes out at 50Mbps - about half what the network is capable of. I replaced a TP-Link WR841N with 300Mbps speeds simply because I place my wireless routers in an out of the way place and the TP-Link was becoming a daily affair of having to reboot it. With the TP-Link in place (and working right) I could get very close to 100Mbps speeds. Best mark I can remember hitting was a few years ago - 98Mbps download with 75Mbps upload. That's pretty quick. Since I don't download big bites of data the 50Mbps is plenty. And it doesn't require rebooting one or twice per day. TP-Link customer service said that was normal!?!? I asked them what abnormal would be to them. I got no answer.
I just measured my current speed - 42Mbps upload and 37Mbps download.
