I got a new laptop for Christmas that came with the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 card that supports 802.11N.   I am only seeing connection speeds of 1500mbps rather than the 300mbps that he DAP-1522 advertises.

I found this on the d-link site but from what  read on the Intel site about the card it supports the 40Mhz band.  http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=618.0

Intel Driver: 15.5.6.48
OS W8 x64 Pro

1500Mb or 150Mb?  ???

Link>Welcome!
What Hardware version is your DAP? Look at sticker under router.
Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on DAPs web page under status.
What region are you located?

To get 300Mb connections, the DAP needs to be set up for single mode N only, WPA2 and AES onlly security and Bandwidth should be set to Auto 20/40Mhz. If the adapter does not connect at 300Mb with these settings, then the adapter maybe incompatible.

I am getting 144.0Mbps....

Product Page : DAP-1522      Firmware Version : 2.02      Hardware Version : B1

Region US

DAP set to N Only, WPA2, AES, Auto Bandwidth.

1 time I did see the speed at 246Mbps and drop to 214Mbps and then back to 144Mbps so I am guessing the card supports it.....but must not do it well since I have not seen it go above 144Mbps other than the 1 time which was really only a few seconds.

I would confirm with a different device that supports 300Mb connections to see if that connects, if it does, I would presume that the card on the Laptop isn't working right, drivers are not working right or card needs to be upgraded.
