Slow wifi x1 carbon touch on windows 8

Hey guys, I have an x1 carbon touch with windows 8 and even with the updated intel drivers, im only pulling about 12 megabits from my asus rt-n56u router. It wont even connect to the 5ghz channel. Any idea? I hear this chip is capable of more speed than that..

Re: Slow wifi x1 carbon touch on windows 8

Ok, I think I have this one fixed.

 

I had to go into the device manager and enable "wireless-n" mode. for some reason it was off. This was also preventing me from accessing my 5g N band. Also, make sure you change the channel bandwidth from 20mhz to "auto" to increase the speed. Its beyond me why these settings where this way by default. But I can say that my wifi is tons better and much, much faster! Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks, spinkick.
This took me from 12 Mbps to 50. Well done!

I have been trying to fix this issue since I purchased the X1 6 months ago.  Your direction worked.  Thank you very much.  I am very agitated why these would be the default settings.

You're most welcome. I'm glad that I could help some folks out. I have no idea why they would do something like that. Maybe to save battery?
