Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6230: Increasing Wireless connection speed

Hi Everyone

Heres hoping someone may be able to help...

I have a new DELL 15XPS15S which is fitted with the above network adapter. I also have a NETGEAR N600 Dual Band Gigabit (DGND3700).

My laptop is running Windows 7 Ultimate and is connected to Windows SBS2011 Domain.

I am trying to understand how I can improve the wireless connection speed from 54Mbps to the 300Mbps that both devices are capable of running at.

I cannot find any configuration settings with Windows that will allow me to adjust. Any ideas?

  • The following adapter settings can be found under the Advanced menu on Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software. Your settings should match the values below. These default settings are for Intel® wireless adapters supporting 802.11n.
