Problems with Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

Hi all,

I have a dell precision M6300, Vista Ultimate 64-bit, and I have problems with dropping connections with a  Wireless-N router using an Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN adaptor. The radio quality is always marked as excellent, but the performance degrades rapidly after a couple of minutes of use until a level that it's almost unusable.

I have an identical PC (identical hardware and OS, same version of drivers for the 4965AGN adaptor. That laptop has no problems at all.

When I run the laptop in safe mode, it hasn't any problems either, so it must be a software problem. I have downloaded and installed the latest version of the drivers.

What could be wrong?

Are you using these Recommended Wireless Router Settings in your wireless router, I use channel 11.


Did you try the latest drivers from...


Intel® Driver Update Utility for Intel® wireless adapters


Did you try allowing Windows to manage your connection?


How to start Wireless Zero Configuration using Windows Vista


Where is the location of your wireless router?





What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
