Troubleshooting

The Adapter does not perform or connection is slow when computer has a built-inwired Ethernet card.

This condition occurs if your computer has an active Ethernet card while your Adapter is also active.. This happens because Windows must now handle two active network connections..

You must disable the Ethernet card from your computer under “Network Adapters” in the Device Manager..

What’s the difference between 802.11g and 802.11n?

Currently there are three commonly used wireless networking standards, which transmit data at very different maximum speeds.. Each is based on the designation for certifying network standards.. The most common wireless networking standard, 802..11g, can transmit information up to 54Mbps; 802..11a

also supports up to 54Mbps, but in the 5GHz frequency; and 802..11n specification can connect at up to 300Mbps.. See the following chart for more detailed information..
