      Leave it in "Auto".

      In this mode all the devices should correctly connect at their appropriate speed. The router will also broadcast at upto 144mbps.

      Only use the other options if you have a specific problem.

      144mbps? How come my wireless N laptop is connected at 65.0mbps?

      144mbps is the maximum that can be supported on a single channel.

      Your Laptop's adaptor may only support up to 65mbps on a single channel. It may support a faster connection on a router which uses paired channels (135mbps in this case).

      If you know what to do it may pay you to change the adaptor for one which works at up to 300mbps. This would support the 144mbps on the Sky router.

      Don't really understand how it works, to be honest. The card in my laptop is a Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 adapter. I wouldn't have a clue which card to change to, or which card to put into my desktop PC tower.

      Since it is in a Tower case, this makes things perhaps a little easier.

      If you are able to open the case, you could take the card out, photograph it, then search the Internet for a similar type of card which supports 300mbps.

      There are a couple of different interfaces available. The cards below are two possible options.

      D-Link RangeBooster N 650 Desktop Adapter DWA-547 Network adapter - PCI

      D-Link Xtreme N PCI Express Desktop Adapter DWA-556 Network adapter - PCI Express x1

      Installing a new card is normally quite easy. There should be a driver disc supplied and once installed the adaptor should work. All that would remain is for you to connect to the router.

      Yeah I know how to fit cards in PC towers - I built mine myself. I also know how to change the laptop adapter as well. It's just a case of which cards to put in them

      Re: New Sagem N router

      Apologies.

      Depending on the individual Laptop, things can be easy, hard, very difficult. Following discussions on this forum I have changed a couple myself and had someone else change on for me.

      If these pics are of the adaptor in your laptop, then changing it could be quite easy:



      In one example I have to remove a large panel from the bottom of a friend's Laptop to gain access to the adaptor. This wasn't too difficult but I was worried until I found the instructions on the Internet to show me how.

      In some cases a small panel will allow access to the WiFi adaptor, as shown below:



      In the case of my main Laptop the adaptor is located under the keyboard. I managed to gain access to it, but it was a delicate process. I managed to fit the Intel 6300 which supports up to 450mbps on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

      As for the cards, their price varies between around 10-45. Some of the Intel cards aren't compatible with non-Intel chips, others are. A search in Amazon should help you to find the right card though.

      Re: New Sagem N router

      No problem.

      If you intend to replace the Laptop card yourself, please DO take a look before you source a replacement. It is important to get the correct size card if it is one of the above pics. The holes are for the screws to hold the adaptor in place. What you can't see on the large card shown is if there are two holes on the unseen end.

      There is a 3rd design which is very different from what I posted. However when I googled the card, those are the pics which came up. The others were much the same two types.

      When searching for a replacement check too whether it has 2 or 3 connectors for the aerial. The cards shown above have only 2 aerial connectors.

      New Sagem N router

      My laptop card I changed to my current wireless N card (was given by a friend) and it looks like the one in your pictures. My laptop has 3 aerials but the card only has 2 connected. This card is the one I mentioned earlier that connects at 65.0mbps See pic:
