Default Installed Dell 1505 Wireless N - 04-17-2009, 02:15 AM

Installed Dell 1505 wireless N card in Mini 9 (8.04) this morning. however it continues to connect with N router at 54 mb.

How can I test or verify it is able to connect at N speeds?

Thanks, George

What does "iwconfig" in a terminal output? On my main laptop's Intel 3945 Wifi, it gives me useful info, on my Mini's lousy Broadcom Wifi, not so much.

Mini 9 | Intel 5100 Wifi | Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook
Mini 1012 | SSD | Intel 6200 Wifi | Ubuntu 11.10 64bit
