Michelle, qhn ; I logged into my router and under status found it was in G mode, went further and found it was in mixed mode - a/b/g/n. I corrected it to N only.
and saved it, only to find I had lost the connection between my computer and the router.
I finally managed, with the Ethernet cable, to log in to the router again and put in back into mixed mode and regained my connection (all this with a lot of difficulty).
I checked out the Network Adapter in Device Manager. the following are the properties I found :
Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN Properties
802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4
802.11n Channel Width for band 5.2
Ad Hoc Channel 802.11 b/g
Ad Hoc default wireless mode
Ad Hoc power management
Ad hoc QoS mode
FAT channel intolerant
Mixed Mode Protection
and the mystery one ; Wireless Mode, which gives 6 possibilities which are ;
802.11a 802.11b 802.11g 802.11b/g 802.11a/g and 802.11a/b/g. (no mention of N)
I can give a value to all these properties, the first three are enabled, some others are enabled or disabled -- the one I find disturbing is the last one , the Wireless Mode where there are no other alternatives to the 6 possibilities offered (and no disable possibility either).
So, I have N, but the router seems to be concentrating on the Wireless Mode, which is set to a/b/g.
I'm wondering why this mode doesn't contain the N connection, which is covered anyway in the first three properties, and also why it exists in the first place ???
this must be the thing that is stopping me from having an N connection.
I really can't figure this one out. Can you, or anyone, understand from the above what I might have to do to, eventually, get this N connection since the possibility is there but the last property above prevents me from doing this. This is really mind-blowing !!!
Perhaps changing one of the properties in between might give another possibility to the
Wireless Mode ???? Or should I ask D-Link or Intel about this.
Thanks for any reply, I shud think this one would be a challenge to anybody !
