Re: Wireless card seems slow on my XPS 14z

@odietamo

the drivers i posted stopped the connection being interrupted. but there was still an issue with the range. i now have an older type of atheros installed, which improved things a lot. i just checked the link i posted in page 1, it's working from here. so it must be the connection to your router why it's dead. bad joke - i know.

Re: Wireless card seems slow on my XPS 14z

I received a different card from Dell 

  • Intel® Centrino® Ultimate-N 6300
No difference so far. But I am not able to put a different driver on it for this card. It tells me, that the Driver 


A02v14.3.0.6

is current. Even if I I uninstall the driver, it still interrupts the installing process of a new driver and tells me that a newer Version is installed?
The technican claims that this card would have more power then the 6230.
So far, no difference.
Any idea about the Driver? Or Could that be that that driver would be the right one for the 6230.
The Intel Software does not find a new driver either?
Router. I have tesed the Computer on several routers. Same result.
Will be on the road for a week and will have contact with 4-5 routers. Will see if any of those making any difference.
If you have an y ideas please let me know.
Thanks.

Re: Wireless card seems slow on my XPS 14z

Maze,

 

First, can you run the Finding System Information Tool and post the results back here.

 

Do you have the Intel® Wireless Display or Intel® My WiFi Technology?

Re: Wireless card seems slow on my XPS 14z

Maze,

 

In answering Terry's thread, since I missed the first time, try reading...

 

How to by-pass the Dell Download Manager then use Internet Explorer to download the drivers, in your browser.

Re: Wireless card seems slow on my XPS 14z

Hello Rick,

tried that. In Germany and in the US. No luck.

File not found.

I used the CC Cleaner and everything.

The file was posted on the 12.

http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER95300M/1/R289422.exe

Are you able to check with Dell or are you able to download the file on your computer?

Thanks.

Re: Wireless card seems slow on my XPS 14z

Maze,

 

Can you run the Finding System Information Tool and post back the information?

 

You are trying to download the drivers for the wireless adapter, correct?
