[SOLVED] Is 802.11n supported by the bcmwlkernelsource wireless driver?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 27, 2014
I have a dual band router with the 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ channels.
My laptop with Mint installed has a wifi adapter that supports 802.11/a/b/g/n.
Right now, the wifi is connected to the 2.4GHZ channel. When I did a scan for my SSID that is on the 5GHZ channel, it is not listed.
My chromebook which has a 802.11n adapter as well connects to my 5GHZ channel just fine.
My question is -- is the bcmwl-kernel-source driver limited to only 802.11/a/b/g and 802.11/n isn't supported?
I appreciate any comments. Thanks
AR5B93 atheros 802.11n 2x2 slow throughput

Asus AC56U 802.11ac in "n" mode over 2.4 and 5GHZ 2x2 channels....
my linux mint laptop:
atheros AR5B93 802.11n 2x2 wifi card
Quad core i7
average throughput over wifi to USB2 connected to router = 8MBps
my windows laptop
intel centrino 6200AGN 802.11n wifi card
Centrino (old) CPU
average throughput over wifi to USB2 connected to router = 15MBps
Can someone advice what I can do on the linux box which is more powerful (newer hardware) to increase the 8MBps ... clearly the router and usb drive are not the issue as throughput tops out at around 150Mbps which is roughly half the 300Mpbs uplink (theoretical). The windows machine is A-okay, not so linux.
I am using standard Mint Petra 16 install and kernel/drivers etc. The ATH9K driver is being used.
802.11n tip WMM/QoS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 12, 2014
I have an old Netgear WNR3500L router which I use as an AP. I have a laptop which is a couple of years old as well as a bit newer latop. Both laptops support 802.11n and run ubuntu (12.04 and 14.04, respectively).
The old laptop has an atheros wifi card while the newer one has an intel 7260.
My wife has a Macbook.
The last couple of days I've been struggling to get 802.11n to work on my ubuntu laptops. It has been impossible to make them use 802.11n and I've tried so many things, but I could only make them connect with 802.11g and 54 Mbps.
However, my wifes macbook connected with 802.11n speeds. Highly strange.
Suddenly today I noticed the problem in the dmesg output. For the linux drivers to connect with 802.11n, WMM/QoS had to be enabled on the AP. No WMM/QoS in the AP, then no 802.11n, at least if you use linux/ubuntu.
After enabling WMM/QoS on the router both my laptops connected with 802.11n. Thus, if you have a wifi card with support for 802.11n, be sure to enable WMM/QoS in
[SOLVED]Can't connect to 802.11n Network , controller: RaLink RT2800

I am running jaunty. I have a trendnet 300Mbps Dual Band wireless router (TEW-671BR) I have a trendnet TEW-623PI wireless adapter.
kernel 2.6.28-15-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP
The card is recognized by jaunty but will not connect if I set my router to 802.11n only. It connects if I set router to 802.11b/g/n
If i put the adapter in a windows machine it connects at 207Mbps so I am confident that the card and router are working properly. I suspect it's either a driver issue or a configuration issue.
I would like to get this working for 802.11n
Here's some info:

802.11n Connectivity Requirements?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 19, 2009
I'm wondering what is needed to setup 802.11n connection between 802.11-enable devices.
I have two computer, both support 802.11n and they're all running Windows XP SP3 with proper drivers set up. I create an ad-hoc (peer to peer) network on one computer then let another connects to but they only operate over 802.11g, so I'm kind of wondering what is additionally needed to make both computer work over 802.11n.
Any help would be appreciated.

I've purchased and RT5572 WLAN card from Mediatek. The card is supported for Linux in two ways:
1. A driver available with the Kernel itself.
2. A driver from Mediatek themselves.
The problem is, that both won't run stable ony my system (ARM-based). I did compile both of the drivers, but none shows the stability, that I wish for. The Mediatek driver even refuses to work absolutely.
Therefore my question: Is there any hardware available, that suits the following needs?
- USB connection (must have)
- 2,4 / 5 GHz dualband (must have)
- 802.11n standard (must have)
- external antenna connectors (must have)
- low power consumption - embedded module
- all channels (even the DFS ones) available - free choice of frequencies
- no housing, pure PCB-board
Any hints would be kindly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
New wireless Router: Standard: IEEE 802.11n
location: linux.com - date: January 30, 2011
I just upgraded to an 802.11n Belkin Wireless router that has a data rate of 300mbps. It was easy to setup, and has a good web configuration interface. I even have the option of upgrading my router's firmware. I will do this after I backup the previous firmware of course.
Has anyone else upgraded to 802.11n?
Ubuntu: How to get wireless lan and 10/100 running simultaneously?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 14, 2011
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron 6400.
I am able to get 10/100 Ethernet card and Wireless Lan working independently.
Ethernet -> eth0
Wireless Lan -> eth1.
If I restart/reboot my eth0 turns starts up fine.
If I then manually start my wireless connection (eth1), eth0 disappears.
There seems to be issues with wireless drivers:
I don't have the cleanest solution but I run this script:
cp /home/stew/Desktop/brcmDriver/wl.ko /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/kernel/net/wireless/
I then do:
wpa-supplicant (with essid and passphrase)
sudo ifup eth1
Is there any way I can have them running simultaneously?
From reading around I believe it's possible but not quite sure what I'm doing wrong.
Or any good references that will help me understand from a more fundamental level.
