The wireless driver iwlagn for that intel card works fine in G but will not work if you
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 BGN
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 48
Memory at d9000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: iwlagn
Kernel modules: iwlagn
as an N card. If you try to use N it will slowly lose connection or just go real slow.
You can check in /etc/modprobe.d for a config file if having connection problems. If
need a config file to make card usable see below: intell 5300 will work if already there also.
This is a must for 11.04 with Intel Centrino wireless N 1000 if router set to work
at N speeds at mixed 20 and 40 mhz or just 40 mhz. If no other installs can just set router at G speeds and 20 mhz and will work fine without config file.
Fix is to make a config file and put this in.
Now put this line in and close and reboot.
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlagn.conf
Makes the card just use the G capabilities in Linux.
options iwlagn 11n_disable50=1 11n_disable=1
If you dual boot can still run at 144 mb/s or N in windows.
Can run at 54 mb/s in linux (still plenty fast enough)
If anyone wants to know if they have N running in this card run
and N should not show up. Such as:
