      I got confused over much of that.

      It has a Centrino processor on the WiFi board.

      I strongly suspect that you will have the identical problem as you have now.

      Is that 150Mb/s on 20MHz bandwidth or 40MHz bandwidth? I suspect that it is 150MB/s on the 40MHz bandwidth as this is one of the stated speed groups.

      Whilst the cards that I suggested will support up to 300MB/s (or 450Mb/s), they will support the full connection speed of the Sagem 2504N router. They are also each compatible with the 2.4GHz & 5GHz channels, ensuring that you are compatible with most future routers.

      When I got my Netgear Router (DGND3700) I also got a USB adaptor that was compatible with the 5GHz channels (WNDR3100). In fairness though I prefer the built-in WiFi adaptor and upgraded both the Laptops which I have.

      Re: Wireless N Speed

      I have just bought one of these, which connects to my Dlink N router at 300mbps.
      https://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-...8245753&sr=8-3

      Unless you have a need to transfer large files between two devices, there is not much need for a card that reports much more than twice your internet speed.
