I just got this brand new laptop - Lenovo Y560 06465CU. Everything seems to be very good so far. One thing I observed is that it cannot connect to wireless network when I set the router to "N" only mode. It can detect my SSID but when i try to connect it fails. My other laptop (MacBook) seems to connect without any problem.
If I set my router to "B Only" or "G Only" then it connects without a problem. When I put the router in "Mixed Mode" then it connects without any problem too. In "Mixed Mode" the laptop shows that it is connecting using as Wireless-N but at the same time router says that the laptop is connected as "G". I made sure that there was no other devices that only support "G" when I was testing this.
The laptop has wireless card - Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 1000. It says it supports wireless-n or *draft-n. Is there any difference?
Am I missing anything here?
I would appreciate any help.
