WiFi LAN speeds at 10% until disable/enable
Posted on 2010-01-02
I've got a new laptop with an Intel 5100 AGN card connected to a D-Link DIR-655 router. When my PC is connected via ethernet I can transfer a large file (2+GB) at around 12MB/s (96Mb/s) which is great but over WiFi I'm getting about 500KB/s (4MB/s). If I disable and then re-enable the WiFi adapter, it transfers at around 6MB/s (48Mb/s) which is still way off of the 150Mb/s I'm allegedly connected at, but it's good enough for me. I've tried updating the firmware for the 5100 though it says it's already current, and I have already updated the router to the most current version, so I'm at a loss as to why disabling and re-enabling the card would make such a difference.
Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction!
