    Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 only a/b/g mode

    JoPhj

      Hi,

       

      I have an Inspiron 7537 with Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-N 7260. The problem is that the card only works in 802.11g. I have a 802.11n capable router and every other device connects in 802.11n speed.

      My speed is capped to 54Mbps. In the driver's advanced panel I have HT mode enabled and I can only select between 802.11a/b/g modes.

      I really can't understand why this card should work like that. I just want, in 2014, 802.11n connection.

       

      What do?

       

       

       

      netsh wlan>show interfaces

       

      There is 1 interface on the system:
