I have a WRT610N running 1.00.02 B10. My Dell Studio XPS has a built
in Intel 5300 which used to "see" the router's 5GHz SSID but no longer
does. I tried upgrading the 5300 driver to 188.8.131.52 (from the Intel
site), which did no good so I downgraded to the Dell driver:
184.108.40.206. The 5GHz SSID still does not show up.
Some of the relevant 5 GHz settings on the router are:
Network Mode Wireless-N only
Channel Width 40 MHz only (also tried auto)
Wide Channel 159 (ch 38 is no better)
The wireless settings of the laptop driver include:
802.11n Channel Width for band 5.2 Auto
802.11n Mode Enabled
I wonder if the router has a problem. I need to borrow a suitable
laptop to see if it can see the 5GHz channel. In the mean time, can
anyone suggest anything else for me to try?
