Advanced properties on wireless adapter



  • So I was just going through my Device Manager and came across my wireless adapter. I clicked on Advanced and it has a bunch of options. I don't know what they all do, and was wondering what settings they should be on. I've googled these for awhile now without much success.

    Adhoc support has the options enable and disable (currently disable)

    Country Region (2.4GHz) has #0 (1 - 11), #1 (1 - 13), #2 (10 - 11), #3 (10 - 13), #4 (14), #5 (1 - 14), #6 (3 - 9), #7 (5 - 13) (currently #0 (1 - 11))

    Country Region (5GHz) has a shitton of options, default is #9 (36 - 116, 132 - 165)

    Direct connect mode 802.11n has enable and disable (currently disable)

    Multimedia/gaming environment has enable and disable (currently disable)

    Rouming/Sensative

    Radio On/Off has enable and disable (currently enable)

    Also how do I check if I have an internal bluetooth adapter? Drivers seem to be preinstalled, but I don't know and am sorta confused.

    Thanks for the help!

    I can't tell you what they all do but in general if you don't have a reason to change something that is already working then don't.

    The Country Regions (both 2.4 & 5 GHz) is a legal thing. Radio emissions are regulated by law. So select whatever country you live in and it will only allow you to use legal channels. It looks like you are in America as you currently have Channels 1-11 selected. So leave that as is.
    What you can do to improve performance though is download something like Acrylic WiFi Home and it will show you which channels are in use in your area. Select a channel (1-11) that is either not used for lightly used and you will get better performance on your network.

    Radio on/off is just that, turn your wifi radio on or turn it off.

    Multimedia / Gaming Environment is probably some kind of QoS, unless you have problems with either of these things I would leave it off.
