Wireless... Was that A, B, G or N?

I've got a wireless router which supposedly supports N class wireless signals, I have wireless cards, which supposedly support N class wireless signals... And after all the faffing this last few days I've updated my driver on the PC to the latest (from the manufacturer) and noted something odd...

My signal strength is low, and signal integrity is poor... I am finally connected, but this is nowhere near as good as before... so, running netsh a little to show all the info "netsh wlan show all" and low and behold I see the problem...

The bloody driver might very much be called "802.11n", but the fucker only has "Radio Types Supported: 802.11g 802.11b" listed... Bastards!

  1. Heya just happened upon your blog via Bing after I typed in, "Blogger: The Megalomaniac Bore" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm
    grateful I found it because your content is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as
    the source. Appreciate it.
