Hi Experts

I made a big mistake after trying to install wireless drivers through Windows Wireless drivers on Linux Mint 15 :oops: .
The Wireless interface was working properly before that, but it was working on wi-fi G 54 Mbit/s standard instead of N on 150-300 Mbit/s.

Here is some output which I think it can be helpful for resolving the issue:

Code: Select all

$ lshw -c network

PCI (sysfs)  
  *-network UNCLAIMED     
       description: Network controller
       product: Centrino Wireless-N 2230
       vendor: Intel Corporation
       physical id: 0
       bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
       version: c4
       width: 64 bits
       clock: 33MHz
       capabilities: bus_master cap_list
       configuration: latency=0
       resources: memory:f7900000-f7901fff

iwconfig
eth0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

Code: Select all

 
 $ inxi -n
Network:   Card-1: Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet driver: alx 
           IF: eth0 state: up speed: 1000 Mbps duplex: full mac: 50:46:5d:3e:a4:b5
           Card-2: Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 
           IF: N/A state: N/A mac: N/A
Thank you in advance!

The driver supports wireless N since kernel version 3.2. Are you sure you can't connect to N, perhaps at a different frequency than G on your router?

I can't try this in the moment, because my wireless card is in UNCLAIMED status now.
