I bought a brand-new Inspiron 15R laptop from Dell and the DW1510 Wireless N WI-FI card will only connect at a maximum of 72mbps. I've tried the laptop with two different N certified routers a (D-Link and Belkin). Routers are configured correctly for N speed and within 10 inches of the laptop.
The speed I am experiencing is nowhere near the 300mbps connection speed possible.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I have the same problem with my DW1510 Wireless N WI-FI card , I also brought my misses a HP laptop and that is working flawless great wireless speeds.
My router is DIR-855 router (D-Link)
When I Connect my speed is 72mbps and then drops to 65mpbs and transfer are so slow it as brought me here and to search google and I see reports of this wireless card not performing the way it should be..please advise i have not had the laptop more than 4 days...
I also have this same issue with a new Inspiron N7010. It has the DW1510 wireless mini-card also.
My router is the D-Link DIR655 Extreme Gigabit Router.
Connection speeds for two other laptops is quite good: Asus Netbook connects at 150 mbps and Sony Viao at 117 mbps.
Hopefully a Dell guru will see this thread and offer a solution.
Thanks in advance.
The latest on my situation...
I phoned dell support about my dell Inspiron N7010 wireless performance and they tried to help me by remote accessing my laptop and updating a couple of things but the problem persists...
So I asked them to swap my DW1510 for the Intel 6200 which they agreed to do and I've got the engineer coming out to me on Monday to swap wireless cards ...
So I'm pretty happy about Dell support on the phone and Facebook
The Intel 6200 drivers are in the wireless drivers list on the dell website for the N7010, but you cant choose between DW1510 or Intel 6200 when configuring the laptop to buy, I would have picked the Intel every time as its one of the best wireless cards at the moment IMO
Well it took almost three hours on the phone to India but because I'm stubborn and won't take no for an answer Dell will
be sending a technician out to replace my wireless adapter also. Hopefully the Intel 6200 will do the trick.
Dell have been out for this morning and replaced my wireless card with the Intel 6200 and results are what I'm used to 270mbps - 300mbps...awsome speeds
Just a big thanks to do Dell for there great support.....one happy customer....Day
Day, how are you getting 270mbps? What your router?
Tech just left and my speeds have basically doubled to 144 mbps.
Originally I was using a D-Link DIR655 Extreme Gigabit router but I've changed to a Netgear WNR3500L. This change increase my speed to 72 from the original 65 mbps.
The change to the Intel 6200 doubled that to 144 mbps.
If you have any tips on bumping this speed up, let me know. Thanks
My router is DIR-855 Xtreme N.. 144mbps thats the speed I got after the 6200 was installed, you need to change some settings...
1.download the lastest driver for the 6200 from Intel website
2. Go to the properties of the Intel 6200 adapter which can be found (Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections)
right click on the Intel 6200 icon then properties; configure; advanced.
(see image below)
These are the settings I am using for the adapter which gives me 270-300mbps depending on where I am in the house
802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4 = Auto
802.11n Channel Width for band 5.2 = Auto
802.11n mode = Enabled
Ad Hoc QoS Mode = WMM Disabled
Fat Channel Intolerant = Disabled
Mixed Mode Protection = CTS-to-self Enabled
Roaming Aggressiveness = 4.Medium-High
Transmit Power = 5.Highest
Wireless Mode = 4.802.11b/g (you can change this to a/b/g depending on your have wireless a devices)
click ok and wait for the adapter to reset and you should be good, let me know how you got on
