I’m pretty sure a setup with same chipset would probably get a better throughput to enable their special bursting technologies. A Band, great for speedy close up networking if your in the same room or 1 room away as the router then this is ideal WLAN. To setup a good test bed, I choose channel 6 on G band to get away from both Channel 1 and 11 which my neighbours are already using. Sign in Already have an account? A band on the other hand is free from users near me I’m probably the only with it where I live. Broadcom Chipset Search In.

briadcom For best range and very little difference in throughput run the router in 20Mhz single channel mode, this has the least impact on others and gives you the best throughput if G Band is congested. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. Sign In Sign Up.
Also I used WPA2 encryption which also has a performance hit, but who is going to run their router with no cbm94321mc. Below is a table of performance of the WLAN card. I should test G band 20Mhz bandwidth at futher broadcomm it should do a few more meter, will mean going outside as the house is not that big: G band congestion will become more of a problem with 11n as the routers use 2 channels to transmit data.

Dell WLAN – Broadcom MC WLAN review – Broadcom Chipset – LaptopVideo2Go Forums
I could have disabled all the above and got a highest possible speed, but this way you guys get a true speed in a normal situation. No to find this even newer driver. Fully backward-compatible with IEEE High-performance features across the Intensi-fi? It only lost connection at 20m with 2 walls, this is only when the connection is stresed as I can happily surf from this distance and stay connected. Firewall and intrusion alerts were also enabled. To make it even more odd the signal strength reads excellent 5 bars The best performance was 10m.

Only channels 1, 6 and 11 are non overlapping so this limits the choices. But to get past Mbps you need 40Mhz Bandwidth which in turn means using 2 channels making congestion even worse.
Recently upgraded to the Broadcom from the and latest driver 4. Distance is measured in Meters, first number after A and G band is connection speed in Megabits per second, 2nd number is actual throughput in Megabits per second, measured with time taken to transfer a certain sized file.
Review is a work in progress, would be good to try a Dell Me thinks Dell gave them a new name for the new range of Santa Rosa based Lappies.

If file transfering is your thing and you don’t mind Vsta x86 then the Atheros is for you, but after 10m definitely go for the Broadcom. Other than Video drivers, WIFI has the most impact on how I use my laptop, bmc94321mc 2 components are the most used briadcom a laptop and have the greatest potential to be tweaked by the user to get the most out them. Allows cost-effective system design using low-cost PCB and single-sided assembly?
A Band, great for speedy close up networking if your in the same room or 1 room away as the router then this is ideal WLAN. G Band 20Mhz Bandwidth was very strange the closer I got to the router the slower the connection became: A band and it’s very short wave lengths means that the signal is more easily absorbed into hard surfaces dry walls etc So range is far less than G band at the same distance. I’m quite surprised at A band, and would recommened this to other users bradcom a better option for WIFI use.
A band is browdcom congested and throughput doesn’t change with distance with no interference.
