Advanced Configuration: Optimizing an INTEL Based Wireless Adapter
This is an advanced guide requiring changes to very deep settings within the wireless driver configuration. These changes are only able to be performed on most devices with a wireless adapter powered by the Intel chipset. If you are not comfortable in making these changes, please seek out assistance at the OIT Technology Support Center (firstname.lastname@example.org/404-894-7173), your departmental CSR, or if you live in the Georgia Tech residence halls) ResNet (404-894-0044).
!!!!!! VERY VERY IMPORTANT !!!!!!
The most recent INTEL driver from the INTEL website will need to be installed before continuing as some older or OEM versions do not allow access to all settings. The Intel Driver Update Utility can be found at http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/wireless. This utility will help you detect which driver updates are relevant to your computer and helps you install them quickly and easily.
This example is assuming you are running Windows 7 or 8 with a working INTEL adapter that is turned on. This also assumes that you have administrator privileges on the computer.
See the other troubleshooting guides for your device if you continue having difficulties.
