    My Wifi on 5300 disables when connected to Wireless-N

    Schutty

      I have a Wifi Link 5300 with Intel My Wifi Technology running on Windows 7 64 bit.  The My WIfi enables automatically at startup and is set to never disable.  When connected to the internet via wireless-g, wireless-b or my CDMA modem I can connect devices (phone, ipod, linux comp, etc) just fine, but when I connect to a my home wireless-n network, the My Wifi technology diables and won't enable when I click the button.  The last time I was at home (2 months ago) to connect to my N network it worked just fine but now it won't.  I've reinstalled everything (drivers, software) and it still only works when connected to something other than an N network. 

       

      Any thoughts or solutions???

          With a little more troubleshooting I've discovered that it only happens when connecting to a 5ghz Wireless-N network.  I assume then that my PAN is also transmitting at 5ghz when that happens so my other devices (all of them G cards) can't see the 5ghz network. 

           

          Just tested with work laptop that has 3945agn card and it sees it.
