|Note||Update your adapter and wireless router software. Use the Intel® Driver Update Utility wireless tool to update your Intel® drivers.|
Below are the default settings for Intel® wireless adapters supporting 802.11n. You can find the recommended settings under the Advanced menu on Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software. Learn how to access and configure advanced Wi-Fi adapter settings.
|802.11n channel width for band 2.4||Auto (not in 20 MHz only)|
|802.11n channel width for band 5.2||Auto (not in 20 MHz only)|
|Fat channel intolerant||Disabled|
|Roaming aggressiveness||Medium (or less)|
|HT mode||VHT mode|
On the wireless router, check the following options:
|Auto channel scan||Enable|
|802.11 mode||Use 802.11n only|
|Channel width||40 MHz|
|Note||WEP and WPA-TKIP are not compatible with 802.11n. |
Data rate will not exceed 54 Mbps when you configure WEP or TKIP encryption.
If you still aren't getting the expected performance from your wireless products, you can set your wireless router to use channel bonding (40 MHz). Channel bonding is also known as mixed mode. Implementing channel bonding on the wireless router allows it to use two channels at the same time. For help, contact the router manufacturer.
