Issue w/ Intel Centrino Mobile

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?UlY=?=, Aug 4, 2004.

  1. I recently purchase a laptop ( Gateway M275xL) with Intel Entering Mobile technology. wireless G. I'm having trouble configuring the wireless adapter. I want to force the card to connect at 54mpbs whenever I'm on a wirless G network and 11mpbs when i'm on a B network. I know with other cards you can do this by going to My Network Places >> clicking on the network adapter, >> configure >> Wireless and then setting the transfer rate from there. But For this adapter when I go to the "Wireless" Tab in configure, it tells me to open the Intel Proset software that came with the computer to configure the adapter. When I go to the software, I can't find any option that allows me to set the transfer rate to a ceratain value, does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks

    The adapter already "knows" how to manage the transfer rate for -b
    and -g, particularly under variable signal strengths and error rates.
    Overiding the adapter manually really offers no benefits since under
    less than ideal signal levels you will force the adapter to fail a
    connection that it otherwise would change the transmission rate to try
    to maintain. This is a witting bullet to foot, IMO.
