    Default Intel's latest WiFi Link 4965 Driver - My results (M1530)

    So, before updating my Intel WiFi Link 4965AGN Wireless adapter on my XPS M1530, my connection to my router was only 39mbps/52mbps/54mbps. I noticed that on Intel's site, they have a driver for this card released within the last two weeks.

    Now what is my connection speed? Anywhere from 58-79mbps. Range hasn't increased, but my throughput is a lot better!!

    How I updated:
    1. Download the file located HERE
    2. Extract the .zip (Or, drag the "Disk" folder onto your desktop)
    3. Right-click my computer, and go to Properties
    4. On the left-hand side, click Device Manager
    5. Go to Network Adapters, and click the + sign
    6. Right-click the Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN, and click "Update Driver Software"
    7. Click "Browse my computer for driver software"
    8. Find the "Disk" folder that you dragged onto your desktop, navigate to the 32 folder (or 64 if you're using a 64bit OS)
    9. More than likely, it will be this location: "C:\Users\**YOURNAME**\Desktop\Disk\Vista\Drivers\v32(OR 64)
    10. And let it go!!


    Hope this helps, I like the increase

    I hope those speeds are with a G router.

    G router can't go above 54mbps.

    I'm about thirty feet away from a DGL-4500, a Wireless N router. I'm also going through about 3 OLD walls, too.

    Well I guess that depends on if you count Super G like I have which is rated for up to 108. I am planning on getting an N though. What encryption are you using. With a 5Ghz router like you have you should totally be able to get over 100 easy. I have read that using certain encryptions lock the card to lower speeds though. It sucks the Nintendo DS only works with WEP so I don't know what to do.

    AES is the best encryption (with WPA2) I believe. I'm using the 2.4GHz spectrum - not the 5GHz (As my sisters desktop doesn't support 2.4GHz).

    Dude. That is what is screwing you. You need 5GHz to open that baby up. Or you could get a router that can do both at the same time. I think I am going to get the D-Link DIR-855. You should be able to get over 200 with that card. I have read of lots of real world tests over 100 even at 2.4Ghz though.
