I just got Uverse power 45 today and switched from Max power 18. Speeds have been pretty slow over wifi connection, slower than when i just had the max power. Is it normal to have speeds of 16Mbps? When i had the 18 i was getting around 19Mbps consistently over wifi. I have the NVG589 setup that came with the power service. Ive only ran two tests with the direct connection and it was around 30-35Mbps, but whats the use of paying 30 dollars more for interent that is slower over wifi?

Well, that depends. If most of your Internet bandwidth demands are from a single wireless client, then maybe not. On the other hand, if your Internet bandwidth needs are split between wireless and wired clients, then maybe it would be worth while. If you also have U-verse IPTV service, having the higher profile also gives you more spare bandwidth for TV use before it impacts your Internet.
The NVG 589 has the capability of supporting 802.11n, which should provide higher wireless rates than the 802.11g the 380x was capable of. However, this would require that your wireless devices have an 802.11n compatible radio in them.
Your issue could be interference in the 2.4 GHz spectrum from nearby homes, other radio frequency devices (old portable phones, baby monitors, etc.

Channel 9? That's hardly a channel I would recommend. Why do you?
