Windows 7: How to force my Intel Proset WLAN to connect with 802.11n speed?

How to force my Intel Proset WLAN to connect with 802.11n speed?

I have a new notebook (with Intel ProSet Wireless chip) which should be able to connect to the WLAN-Rouer with 802.11 n speed.

The WLAN-Router/AP itself offers as well 802.11 n feature.
Currently for testing purposes the WLAN-Router/AP stands just 1 m distance with no wall in between.

However when I launch my Win7 on Notebook it connects only with 54Mbit which is far below the possible speed. Another notebook just aside the first one offers 130Mbit speed.
So WLAN-Router/AP is not the problem.

Is there a settings in Win7 wlan network setup which prevents my Win 7 to connect to WLAN-Router/AP with a higher speed?

If you are seeing 54Mbps as the max, that is what you get with 802.11g. So it sounds like you are in G mode for some reason. Try looking at the Advanced settings for this adaptor in Device Manager and see if it's set to use wireless n.

You should also make sure your router is set to use the 802.11n Only setting, so it's not running in mixed mode.
