I couldn't find anything on the board, so I'm hoping someone can help. I have the Intel 5300 network adaptor. I'm not sure how long it's been doing this but I noticed today that it's connecting via "g" to my linksys router. My desktop connects via N without a problem. I checked the device driver and "n" is enabled and set to auto for both frequencies. I am running the router on 5.2. The router is currently set to mixed mode. If I change the mode to "n" only, the X200s won't connect at all. I updated to the most recent access connections and to the most recent driver. No joy.
Does anyone else have any suggestions?

I don't have an n network to try at the moment. My desktiop does work fine, but it uses a linkysys adapter. I did try taking the router to 2.4 and the adapter followed it fine, but stayed at 54 mbps. I changed it back to 5.2 and again it followed it fine.
As far as the router firmware goes, I haven't looked recently, but the last time I looked it had the most recent firmware.

I have an N and G wireless router also. The maximum connection speed I attain is 54 mbps. The difference between N and G tutned out to be meaningless as the maximum download speed from my Internet provider (according to CNet) hardly ever exceeds 1 mbps. The provider "Speed Meter" reads 3 mbps for a "turbo" connection.
I have tried different encryption modes using both G and N, G is the fastest using WPA-TSK.at 54 mbps. N will not connect at any mode. I am not sure that the 1.2 gb processor in the x200s can handle speeds above G.
This is not a solution, but it recounts what works.

Bill, I havet believing that. I'm using personal and my desktop does connect via N and much faster than I used to get with my old g router. At the moment it's only this machine which won't connect. When I get some time next week, I will try using the linkysys usb adapter that I'm using on my desktop on this one and see what I get.

I probably should reword that a little. The computer reports that I am connected via n, but the speed is reported as 54 Mbps and the connection is much slower than my desktop which has an n USB adapter.
