Intel WiFi Link 5100 - Is 802.11n (Draft-N) possible?
Hi. I recently moved from Windoze to Linux. I have an HP dv4-1028US laptop which has the Intel WiFi Link 5100 wireless network card. Under Windoze, the card worked flawlessly in 802.11n mode and I consistently got speeds of over 150 mbps. However when I moved to Linux (Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10), the card only works in 802.11g mode with a max of 54 mbps. From what I've been able to research, the iwlagn driver (using the iwlwifi-5000-1-lbm.ucode firmware) is supposed to work in "N" mode, but I can't find out how to make it switch from "G" mode to "N" mode. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
