Windows 7: Network card has a mind of its own

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

The problem with N-150 is that its really N-300 crippled to work at half speed. It's something they dreamed up to fill the gap (price wise) between G (54 Mbs) and true N (300 Mbs). If you look up the wireless standards there is no (official) N-150 spec. It's not just D-Link doing it either. I think it has fail written all over it and I won't touch the stuff myself.

Yea after my experience of checking the percent of signal the 150 had gotten which never hit above 50 percent and dropped connection pretty bad, I would have to say I am very satisfied with the 300, because it really did solve my internet problem completely I can keep connected to my main internet that I pay for no problem now! thanks Alpha for this long journey haha it lasted months but finally solved you deserve rep+!

Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area
My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. ...
