I was attempting a file transfer between my NAS and Phone today, but realised that despite the Nexus 5 supposedly supporting 20/40mhz bands on wireless N, I was instead negotiating with my AP at only 72mbps.

I have a Asus RT-N16 router running Tomato USB and my other devices can connect at 300mbps fine, but there is something about my Nexus that won't. Even though I think its suppose too.

Now this is separate to 802.11AC, my router doesn't support this and AFAIK it may work fine compared to 802.11n.

So my question is, has anyone else managed to get 300mbps N link speeds on their device when using a 802.11n network spec @ 40mhz?

Seems for some reason my device is telling the AP that it supports single band 20mhz only and is defaulting to this low connection link.

I have tried different WiFi tweaks, switching too and from mobile data modes after some research on here and none of it helps, still stuck at 72mbps.
