I'm having problems with my new Intel 6230, purchased from Tiger Direct and installed in an ASUS N61J -
The speed shows 130 or 144 Mb/s to a known 300 Mb/s access point. BUT, it keeps closing down every several minutes and then reconnects. Also the Bluetooth has the same problem.
My adapter and new driver version are doing great. No problems since yesterday evening.
Did you try installing the OEM driver version (from PC manufacturer website) instead of installing the Intel drivers directly?
I have just removed the installed version and reinstalled this version 18.104.22.168.
I'm using WinXP SP3 on the ASUS notebook N61J.
There are 2 versions on the Intel Download center. and I have used both of these with the same results - auto connecting - disconnecting - reconnecting. And, the speeds are always either 130 or 144 Mb/s, not 300 Mb/.

There is no support from ASUS; I just wanted a 300MHz Wireless & Intel's always performed well.
The Bluetooth has been equally troublesome with the Nokia 6350, when it connect reports "Only audio files will be transferred" followed by "disconnected" about 20 seconds later.
Maybe this device was designed for Windows 7, which my clients and I will moving to in a few months. Maybe I should have purchased a different model such as the N6235, but I'm not sure there are WinXP drivers.
