Question concerning Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN

I just got a refurbished Dell Latitude E6410 computer that works like new last week on Thursday with Windows 7 Pro and a Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN wireless card driver. The belkin.de0 server (which is an 802.11n server) works fine with a maximum speed of 72.2 Mbps. Recently, the speed keeps increasing and decreasing, so I have to ask: how do I keep my wireless driver and server to stay at 72.2 Mbps when dealing with this driver?

Hello Kyleboy21,

It's always important to make sure your computer is using the latest drivers available for your wireless adapter. These drivers can be found in the support page for your computer:

Or you may find our latest generic driver linked in the advisory article: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000006507.html Customer Support Options for Discontinued Intel® Wireless Products.

Once you have updated your wireless drivers, you can apply the following changes:

If the issue persists, please provide the following information:

  1.

  2. Access Point model and firmware version.

Before I forget, the driver was updated to the latest version and the wireless adapter power option is set to maximum in both battery and charger-plugged sections when I first got it. By the way, the results are in this attachment here.

Kyleboy21,

 

 

Everything on your settings looks good. If you keep on having issues with your download speed you may want to make sure your router has the latest firmware installed or engage your internet service provider.

You may not know this, but my mother doesn't want anyone to change her router, even when times are tough for it and I'm certain that it isn't my internet service provider's fault either.

Hello Kyleboy21,

We understand that in many cases making changes to the router is not an option. Don't worry.

On the report you shared with us we could see your adapter is getting a connection rate of 72 Mbps with a signal strength of 80%.

The connection rate measures how fast data moves between your adapter and your router. If you use a website like fast.com or speedtest.net, what you see is your internet or download speed rather than your connection rate. While these two are similar and do relate to one another, they measure different things.

Currently your adapter settings look ok. What we can suggest instead of looking at your router settings will be to consider things that may affect your wireless connection in order to increase your signal strength, such as placement or interference. Unfortunately, there's not much else we can suggest, since this adapter has been discontinued (and reached the end of it's http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000006507.html support cycle). But we always like to try and help.
