u350 / Intel 5100 AGN problems

2009-12-27, 18:10 PM

I have a u350 w/ windows 7 and I'm getting poor wifi speed, packet loss, and disconnections.

 

I have a good Cisco AP (802.11g) that works well with my two other laptops.  Typically sitting side by side, the other laptops will be at 54 or 48 mbps and will download a 700mb file about twice as fast from a local file server.  I've had the ap and other laptops for months and never got disconected in my own house before, but I have lost signal multiple times with the u350.

 

I also bought a crappy linksys wrt610n to go with the new u350, none of my other devices support N so I set this thing up exclusively for the u350.  I typically get speeds anywhere from 2-5mbps on the N AP but sometimes as high as 24mbps.  I've played with various settings on the AP such as 5ghz only, 2.4ghz, or both at the same time, but it's pretty crappy and slower than G every time.

 

Because I have the two APs, and the other laptops, I'm pretty sure it's just the u350 that's screwed up.  Forgetting the 802.11n, I would be happy if I could use the u350 with my Cisco G without getting disconnected and dropping packets left and right.

 

Is it possible I have a bad wi-fi card or could it be just a software problem?  I've tried both the lenovo driver and the newer intel/microsoft one and they both have this issue.

Disregard this, I took it apart and found one of the antenna cables was loose.  Now I'm getting 54mbps on G and 216mbps on N.
