    Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Speeds Slow

    jdress91

      I am currently in the process of troubleshooting my wifi connection because I am receiving a 2Mbps down speedtest with 85-100% connectivity and it showing a capable 200-300Mbps connection. (Wired 200Mbps.)

       

      After hours of troubleshooting the closest I can come to a solution is one where I disabled 802.11n Mode under the adapters advanced tab (this gives me a 14-15Mbps down speedtest, but I refuse to compromise for a G connection and drag down the rest of my network because of this adapter.

       

      I have installed the most up to date drivers. Using WPA2. Using my phone's wifi and doing a speedtest I get around 150Mbps. I've tried forcing different channels, 20Mhz, etc. Pretty much any sort of "solution" I could find online.

       

      Any help would be appreciated. I just can't fathom why a G connection would be getting 7-8x as much down speed.
