Intel 6300 Ultimate-N and Windows 8 Pro



I have the two following issues after install Windows 8 Pro instead Window 7:

- there is notebook with Intel 6300 Ultimate-N module and ASUS RT-N66U router. When I sit sideways to the router, I have a connection, ping through without delay. But when I turn to face the router with notebook, connection disappeared, ping shows time-out, but the Wi-Fi link showing connected;

- Wi-Fi link shows 450 Mbit/s only few seconds after turning on Intel 6300 adapter. After few seconds link jumps to 300 Mbit/s.

With Windows 7 had no such problems. Everything was OK. Can anyone help me, or give a good advice, please?

I have 15.5.6 version driver and Intel PROSet/Wireless software installed. I tried install only driver without PROSet software, but nothing changed.

Hi parsultang,

It seems that you have problems with your Wireless Driver, is it possible for you to test a different one from Windows* 7?, Even though you have Windows* 8 I would like to check if a driver from Windows* 7 (Wireless_15.3.1) would fix your issue.

Here is the link so you can download the recommended driver:

If you have Windows* 8 32 bit:
