I have been trying to get the router to perform in 'n' mode without success. I was told to go onto the netgear smart wizzard site and use the dropdown in 'mode' and choose 'n' or 'g/n'.However the 'mode' dropdown only offers g&b. The router is connected to a desktop via an ethernet cable and I have my new laptop connected wirelessly. How can I get the router to 'perform' in draft n?

Does the laptop have a Draft N wireless card or adapter?

If the laptop is using the standard b/g wireless the router will not connect using draft N

The wireless router will only connect to the type of wireless card that is connected to it b/g or N

Disconnect the laptop from the router and set the router to draft n than reconnect using the draft n on the laptop

Sorry to be a bit slow on this , I have disabled the router on the laptop but im not sure how to check the wireless card, how do i access this. also when you say access the router do you mean via the smart wizzard? if so that has been the problem there seems to be nowhere there with the option to select 'n'

no access the router via your browser check the router manual on the correct access code

Forget the smart wizard you need to access the router via your browser check the router

manual on the correct access code

Once you have access the router, via your browser click on the wireless section on the

left hand side menu and change the mode/type to draft n

On the laptop check that the wireless card is set to auto or draft n

Right click on task bar icon click status-

properties at the top of display the wireless card will be displayed click-configure click advanced tab and enable the setting to use draft n

I'm sorry about this but I dont have any button anywhere on the browser (IE) which has anything to do with the router.
