Hoping someone can help me with this issue. I apologize if this belongs in the hardware section of the forums, but the more I thought about it, the more I felt it should go here.

I have a Shuttle sz68r5 that I installed an Intel Ultimate N 6300 networking card in.

I have updated all the drivers, Win 7(64)and everything I have tells me it is working fine. Even Intel's Wifi Manual Diagnostic tool.

It's noting the reception is excellent with full bars but I can't seem to get the MPS above 40-50mps. Other networking devices I have tried (all USB based) are getting 130mps. I would love to pull down closer to 300mps (others on newegg note 450) but honestly I'd be happy to get it up to par with every other device I've plugged in at 130mps.

All devices have run on the same channels and same internet security settings.

Anyone able to tell me where to start looking for the issue? Please use small words, as networking really isn't my forte. =)

Thanks in advance!

I have a few ideas but I am taking a shot in the dark I never had a mini wireless card

1.Intel Ultimate N 6300 is a mini-pci wireless adapter card so its running the maximum through put of the bus or your antenna is not in sight of the wireless router.
2. Your broadcasting g/n to all of your devices. You can tell the wireless router to Only broadcast N to all of your devices that may help you but If you put like a G type network adapter your router will not transmitted to G tpye band because your router will ignore the adapter until you change it back to G/N broadcasting
