Just had my internet connection at home upgraded to 40+Mbps and had a new Wireless N router at the same time to replace my old 54G one.
My laptop has a card which is A/G/N and my router is setup for N.
However, in Windows 7 on my laptop I only seem to be connecting at 54G.
The status of the connection says the Radio Type is 802..11n, but when I look at the speed of the connection it says 54 Mbps.
Not sure then why I am only getting 54.
Finally I checked the adapter settings – it is an Intel WiFi Link 4965AGN (in a Dell Latitude notebook) – settings are:
802.11n Channel Width for band 5.2 = Auto
802.11n Mode = Enabled
Ad Hoc Channel 802.11a = 36
Ad Hoc Channel 802.11b/g = 1
Ad Hoc Default Wireless Mode = 80211b/g (only other option is 802.11a)
Ad Hoc Power Management = Disabled
Ad Hoc QoS Mode = WMM Disabled
Fat Channel Intolerant = Disabled
Mixed Mode Protection = CTS-to-self Enabled (only other option is RTS/CTS Enabled)
Roaming Aggressiveness = Medium
Throughput Enhancement = Disabled
Transmit Power = Highest
Wireless Mode = 802.11a/b/g (there are other options for this but none with n)
My wife’s laptop with an Intel WiFi AGN card also does exactly the same.
I have updated the drivers with the latest available and no change.
I am not using Intel’s software to manage the WiFi (I don’t have it installed), and instead I am allowing Windows 7 to manage the WiFi.
Any advice much appreciated.
