    "unable to connect" using n-mode


      Hi all,


      I just got a new laptop this week with an Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205 and I'm having quite some trouble connecting to my home wifi using n-mode. It works fine with n-mode disabled, but obviously I want the fastest connection possible. I'm at a complete loss right now, so I hope you guys can help!


      A few more notes:

      • Using Windows 7
      • My modem-router is a Huawei HG655d and does support 802.11n
      • Other machines in the house are not experiencing any trouble connecting in n-mode
      • It works fine on the two other wifi networks I've tried so far, although I'm not sure if those were 802.11n networks.


      What didn't work so far:

      • uninstalling the driver & restarting the laptop
      • uninstalling the driver & installing the latest driver (
      • switching off TCP/IPv6
      • setting the router to 20Mhz & setting the adapter channel width settings to 20MHz
      • setting the router to 802.11n-only instead of 802.11b/g/n (other machines do connect with this router setting)
      • setting the adapter Ad Hoc QoS Mode setting to WMM enabled


      Wireless adapter settings:
