Default 1510 Wireless N in Mini 10v question. - 03-03-2010, 03:35 AM

How come under Band Prefrence there is only a/b/g. It seems like all the settings you can change under the advanced tab in windows have to do with those. There is only 1 mention of N. Also, my N router is displaying as Wireless A under Windows 7.

What am I doing wrong. I thought this was an N card but it seems to be performing horribly compared to G. Is there any settings at all to change under Windows or is it 100% my DDWRT WRT610n router.

I got two bars for N and four bars for G without being connected to any of them. I thought it would be the other way around =/

Any ideas? Thanks.

Edit: I booted into OSX and its a night and day difference. It flys on N (same 2 bars though). I don't know what the deal is under Windows 7. I got the latest driver from Dell, then I got the latest (newer) Broadcom driver from a post on here and they both don't hold a candle to OSX =/

I think you may be getting bands and protocols mixed up. A is a protocol for 5.8 ghz band and B/G is a protocol for 2.4 ghz band. N is a protocol which can be run on either or both bands depending on the capabilities of the wireless router or AP you are using. As for the 1510 card it is N capable. If N is not available it may be driver related.
