What do you think?
Thanks for your insight.

About all you can do in this case is try Windows updates or look around or wait for a better driver. Cat 5 or 6 has nothing to do with this type of problem. Cat5 won't limit a gigabyte connection one bit.

your work router may have the option of b, g or mixed. If it is set to b, that would account for your slow speed. You would need to be physically connected (unless they have wireless admin - I would hope not) to the router and have admin access to determine this.

Yes the router does have the mixed mode (and wireless admin as well ) and it is set to a/b/g/n auto. This setting is made in the adapter setting for the wireless NIC. I will attach a screen shot of the router settings as well as that NIC setting as well.

Hello everyone!

I had the same problem with the "DW1501 Wiresless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card" about the slow connection.
I fixed it myself in this way.

Go to Device Manager:
Look for the Network Adapters and open the properties of your "DW1501 Wiresless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card"
When you're there, in the Advanced tab, Change the "BSS Mode" to 802.11g Mode.

For me It was set by default on 802.11n Mode, I changed it and that fixed the problem.

I hope this work for any of you guys that have this issue.

72Mbps... I was downloading like 50KBps max... that's not even close to what the doc says.

Anyways It looks like it was fixed because I reinstalled the driver a while ago and it's running on 802.11n just fine...
