    Hey guys, I have a linksys n router at home, and while my laptop says its at 115 mbps, cellmon on my torch shows 45 mbps

    Is this a cellmon limitation? (Like how meterberry doesn't recognize over 256mb of device memory) or is there something I'm missing?

    Chances are Blackberrys aren't designed to take advantage of insanely high bandwidth because there's no noticeable use for it. you may not notice any difference between a 45 mbps and a 115mbps connection except that the phone would be choking under the data load.
    really iirc all WiFi N does on a phone is increase the range and prevents the router from throttling down to g for all devices.

    it has a wifi-n radio, so i shouldn't be at G speeds, period.

    Your router should show what devices are connected and what protocol (has to be WPA-2 AES for 802.11n).

    give an example where n speeds is noticeably different than g speeds on a smartphone. and keep in mind that HD videos are worthless due to the screen being only 480x320 or so, and it actually runs worse as the processor has to downbuffer the videos to fit on the screen.

    I would say direct downloads like podcasts would be improved over wireless N but not active content such as web.

    Kinda sucks that I run a 5mhz N network at 300mb instead, always wondered why 2.4mhz at half the speed was the one that caught on in a busy band range.

    Even G speeds aren't fully used.

    G is 54MBPS. So unless you're home internet is faster than 54MBPS, worrying about the G or N connection is pointless.
