Hi. I have recently purchased a new laptop (Samsung NP300EZ-S01RO) that has this specific Wi-Fi card. The problem? My connection speed won't go above 54mbps no matter what. I have Win7 x64, Linksys E1000 (v2) N router. I have the latest Intel drivers from their website, and after blaming my router 2 hours ago I installed DD-WRT firmware on it. I think it's something in the setting, but on a discussion on these forums someone said his N6300 Wireless card was incompattible with the exact same router. Any ideas ? Is this my problem too ?
On your post you have not specified what settings you have for the network you set up on the router. But see the links below for the recommendations; first for an issue specifically with only getting 54Mbps connections:
This wireless adapter you have supports a connection up to 150Mbps if there is not too much interference. It supports only 2.4 GHz networks, so you would need to ignore the settings for 5 GHz or 802.11a, since your adapter does not support it
First of all, thank you for your response. I want you to know that I had seen those links before and many others, but all failed. But I gave it another shot.
All my N-130 settings are as specified, except for "Throughput enhancement" which I don't have.
Concerning the settings on my router, the only difference was that i had packet burst enabled, and i disabled them but still no change: 54mbps. Hate this number already !
Concerning the other settings on my router: Security is WPA2 Personal - AES, WMM is enabled, QoS is disabled ( I had to set the speeds and I didn't know if to set the ones I have now or the ones I used to have). If you require other settings you would like to know, put them in a post and I will answer.
Last thing, one of the links you posted said I had to put my router in N-only mode. This is impossible because if I do that, Windows isn't going to let me connect anymore: "Windows was unable to connect to dd-wrt".
If you have any other ideas, I will gladly try anything.
