yeah, I remember asking everyone who has "N only" mode in his/her router to share results. Got one short answer that it connects fine w/out second (AUX, usually for MIMO in N mode, not for N as such) antenna. Never had a chance to know make&model, though, to buy me such a device. Now, at least, will stay away from Netgear, and non-gamer/extreme D-Links. Have heard good words about N-connectivity of cheapo TRENDnets elsewhere -- though for iPads (aPads? can't recall now)

Could be the router itself, I had a Netgear WGT624 that the PDN would never connect to but a dozen other devices could. Since I was having some dropped connections with my newer laptop I picked up a cheap ASUS RT-N13U and the PDN connects fine. I just switched it to N only mode and still connects fine.

Yeah that thread got a little congested. Here is the comment about my router:
I'm personally using a Rosewill RNX-EasyN4. Cheap little guy, think I picked it up for $30 or $40. Even streams HD video pretty well.
It's a pretty low-end device, but the PDN works fine with it. I'd say the evidence is unequivocal: the PDN connects at 802.11n with one antenna, and works fine. Now does it maintain 11n speeds while connected? Very, very unlikely (though I mentioned I can get 2-4Mbps down using speedtest...I think that's more like 11b but that's life).-Matt

The ASUS I mentioned above was also cheap...~$18 after rebate and review coupon at mwave. So far it works pretty good.gadgetrants...what site are you using for your download test? The one I normally use is flash based so I can test the PDN.

I'd be also recommending to use WiFi Analyzer app, a version of which can be found in gebeekazoo's depository. Whatever your source of downloading and resulting throughput you measure at some test dslbroadband.com server, this utility is good for site and distance survey. Like you add an additional AUX antenna and measure bandwidth DL/UL figures plus signal level at a given point.Not that there's something to improve beyond that, as it's all in Ralink's/Azureware firmware, and driver, anyone have seen recent updates of these? Sure, your router would better be with DD-WRT or Tomato, or whatever
