Windows 7: WiFi Gurus can you help?

WiFi Gurus can you help?

I have a some questions relating to wifi.

As hard as I try, I can't do better than 4/5 MBps when trying to download a 2GB test file from my ASUS N61JQ-JX002V Laptop, (bought in 2010), to my desktop computer, that is cable connected using Windows7 Home Network, via my Netgear CG3000V2 modem router.

When I use the "netsh wlan show interfaces" at a command prompt on the laptop,it seems the router is transmitting at 802.11n, but when checking the wifi adaptor settings in the Advanced section of Properties of the laptop, it shows it is set at 802.11g and there's no provision for 802.11n.

After confirming that there was an updated driver that had the capability to operate at 802.11n, despite Windows 7 saying that I had the latest driver, for the Wifi network adaptor, I downloaded it and while it seemed to function okay, there was no improvement in download speeds.

More reading and the "Doh" moment; you have to have a networking card that is capable of operating at 802.11n!!

So after all this here's the questions.

The ASUS laptop works fine, and hasn't done a lot of work, but is it feesible and even possible to upgrade the wifi adaptor hardware to 802.11n, so that I can see a marked improvement from the 54Mbps barrier that I'm now limited to with the 802.11g, and get something like the 600Mbps, which I can get transferring the test file to a USB 3 flash drive (75MBps)

Also, if this is possible, what would you suggest to buy, is the hardware interchangeable, like HDD's? Or do you need to stick with what the manufacturer used?

As you've worked out by now I'm short on knowledge, but keen to try and get over this slow file transfer hurdle, without having to scrap the ASUS laptop, which I can't justify or afford.

Hoping you can assist

Regards Ron

Hi Reggie,
according to the specs it has N spec wifi rating.
Which would imply that the advanced settings are set at the G default values.
On my rigs im using the Wifi brand driver (intel) not asus's, same for my w10 rig (foxconn)
There are a lot more options on these.
see screenshot, note a/b/g select a (n+)
Whats you Wifi brand.

Roy

Hope this is satisfactory, not happy about leaving all IP info in this, so I've blacked it out. I'm sure there are people out there that could use this information to my detriment.

Tried to submit text but get a message "too many characters" so have attached a text file, hope this works

I would stick with what the pc manufacturer used. You may have downloaded the wrong driver. Roll it back. I admit sometimes i go directly to the hardware manufacturer but only if i know chipset, etc.

A few questions.
Is this a recent issue? When and What changed?
Have you tried repeating experiment in another user profile? How about in safe mode with networking?
As another user pointed out, is the card configured to accept only 802.11n or can it also accept a or b or g? You want only n!

The only thing I would blank out is your ipv4 and ipv6 wlan address.
The dns addresses are generic. There is only a handful in the world.
Your internal network addresses are behind your firewall, and thus completely safe.

I suppose you could also blank out you mac addresses (as you did) for your ethernet cards. It should not affect how the group would deal with it.
Please resubmit your file if you expect help.
