(just in case, im sorry for my english)
i´ve an http://www.notebookreview.com/scripts/redirect.asp?couponID=50996 acer aspire 5740g, linksys e3000
my acer original card an atheros, cant connect on 5ghz, or anywhere near 300mbps! so i buyed a new one on ebay, an intel wireless pro 6200 to replace this atheros!
received today, installed, but...i cant get 300mbps, my acer wireless light, an orange light is now blinking all the time, my speed is unstable on 5ghz or 2.4! starts with 150mbps, drops to 90, then 120, then 150 again, all the time! and this annoying orange light blinking, atheros never blinked or im crazy! oh and my signal strenght now drops from 5 to four bars all the time, that never happened with atheros, i live on a small apartment! the router is really close, just drops on 2.4 or 5ghz
how do i get 300mbps? how i make my lan speed and signal stable?
just adding, i already tested with my older router, wrt54g2, and the light blinked the same way! my connection never drops, im playing wow right now, good ping and everything, but i want 300mbps =( doesnt make sense paying 160 dollars on this router and being unable to get 300mbps or worse getting unstable lan speed! apparently the problem is the wireless card but im not sure! latest drivers installed, intel app and everything updated! w7x64 hp!
my 5ghz band is only n, 40mhz, tried different channels, security is wpa2 aes for N and 2.4ghz band too!the same problem is happening with both bands!i connect, my network never drops, but my signal with intel is really poor, intermittent, really weird,! antennas are installed correctly! tried several drivers, the latest, and the oldest!transmission power is set at highest! and that only happens with this card!installed dd-wrt on my router to discard linksys problems, and same issue! but in dd-wrt i can see that this card cant keep a better signal than 60%, 50-60% all the time...and im really close to the router, really close!anyone can help me please ? thanksss

just adding, graphics while downloading a file on 5ghz network, yellow on the graphic, really weird, im 5 meters away from the router
i made a few tests
opened again, removed both antennas, and tried both on 1 and 2
when only one antenna doesnt matter wich one, black or white, are connected to 1, i got 5mbps-1mbps speed
and when i connect only one antenna black or white, on 2, i have the same behavior as now with both connected!
adapter problem? how does antenna 1 works anyone can tell me? the purpose of antenna 1?
i hope it´s not an adapter problem
