    Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 range issues

      Hello,

       

      I recently installed a Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 card into my Intel DH61AG motherboard installed in one of the mini-pcie slots. The wireless range of the machine is terrible though. The computer is running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit.

       

      From about 2 feet away from the router, with the case lid off, I get 4 bars of connection according to Windows.

      From about 2 feet away from the router, with the case lid on, I get 2 bars of connection according to Windows.

      From about 50 feet away from the router, withe the case lid on or off, I can't see my network at all.

       

      I have tried updating the driver through Windows. Windows says that the driver is updated. I am completely stumped. Any help is greatly apprecaited.

       

      Thanks,
