If this is the spec of your Macbook Pro, your network card is only 2.4 Ghz:
Wi-Fi wireless networking2 (based on IEEE 802.11n specification); IEEE 802.11a/b/g compatible
Huh? 802.11a is 5GHz; if you see something that says IEEE 802.11a/b/g or IEEE 802.11.a/b/g/n (or, of course, .ac for the newest stuff), that means it can do dual-band wifi.
Apple has always been very good about dual-band wifi cards. Maybe the PowerPC machines had single-band 802.11b/g back in the day, but every Intel-based MacBook/MacBook Pro has had dual-band... (and, as crazy as it is and as old as it makes me feel, the Intel Mac transition was 11 years ago)
This is my MacBook
Based on the spec sheet - "Wi-Fi wireless networking2 (based on IEEE 802.11n specification);" - your computer supported N as the fastest wireless connection and given the time frame and phrasing -"based on" - quite likely an early draft version. 150 Mbps with a solid wall inbetween is pretty respectable on that.
You could invest in an AC adapter but for me that's hard to justify when you've also got a Gigabit Ethernet port. When you really need to fly/download something large, just plug in and avoid all the fun of wireless interference altogether.
Is anyone else getting the following errors lately...

17 of them..
I just checked in to see if this has been fixed yet but I guess not, I will stick with my black modem still for now, speeds wired are in the 800 range 150-180 still wireless which is fine, I do have that one on a timer though to power off and on at 3:45 am each day as I find it boggs down if I don't.
I hope they fix this Hiltron modem or replace it soon I'd like to hit my 1gb speeds one day!...... But better than what you guys are experiencing, Kudos to you for sticking with this model,testing and working out the issues !
I had 2 white modems before I went Black and haven't been back
