How to Fix a Linksys EA4500 that’s not Transmitting at Wireless-N Rates

I had an issue where the EA4500 was not transmitting Wireless N rates. I did some searching and found that when you disable WMM the router will only transmit at Wireless B/G rates on 2.4 GHz.

Just re-enable WMM and you will get your Wireless-N speeds back.

To re-enable Wireless-N rates:

Login to your Administration page (typically at

Click “Media Prioritization”

Click Settings

Finally, enable “WMM Support”
