Re: Latitude E6400, Intel Wifi Link 5300 AGN Drops Connections

Hi Rivettmj

I've found that some of these issues have been resolved by ramping up the Power Management slider in the 5300 AGN properties window to max has resolved the issue for a few users.

I found some info in an intel release notes document.

Searching for 5300 drivers i got here:*+...

and then clicking the release notes link for the driver i get this:

here is one of the known issues:

Linksys* Access Point Association Timeout

After the association flow completes, the adapter stays awake (as in CAM mode) for 10 seconds, and then acts according to the PowerIndex (PI) regkey. PI should not be change during this period. The association timeout is 10 seconds. Using the Linksys access point, association occurs every 60 seconds, resulting in deauthentication and disconnection from the Linkysys access point.


The regkey in the statement above is directly controled by the power management slider i mentioned above. I think for some of my users cranking the setting to max has resolved the issue.


Hope this helps. Let me know if you get anywhere with this.
