Settings. This review was due to the release of Broadcom Adaptor Drivers from other vendors. The latest so far of these drivers is v22.214.171.124 these can be found here: Broadcom 126.96.36.199 Drivers These are Updated driver that Include WPA2 support and other new features. Here is a list of the Additional Settings from the Advanced Settings of the Wireless Adaptor. To access the Advanced tab to view the available properties, right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon in the notification area, click Properties, then click Configure from the General tab, and then click Advanced. You will then see the Advanced Menu.
The Advanced tab from the Broadcom 802.11 Wireless LAN Adapter Properties allows you to view and change the values of the available properties. To access the Advanced tab to view the available properties, right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon in the notification area, click Properties, click Configure from the General tab, and then click Advanced. To view the value of a property, click the name of the property in the Property list. The property value is displayed in the Value box. To change the value, click an option in the Value list or type a new value, as appropriate (selection options are different for different properties). The available properties and their respective settings are described below. NOTE: Some of the properties may not be available on your model of Broadcom 802.11 Wireless LAN Adapter. For those properties that are available, the default value may be different than indicated. 802.11a This property allows you to specify the rate (in Mbit/s) at which data is transmitted for IEEE 802.11a operation. The possible values are: 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, and 54. The default is set to Use best Rate. NOTE: The default value for this property is set for maximum performance. Therefore, It is not recommended for home users to change the value. Only network administrators or technicians with wireless LAN experience should attempt to make any changes. 802.11b/g This property allows you to specify the rate (in Mbit/s) at which data is transmitted for IEEE 802.11b/g operation. The possible values are: 1, 2, 5.5, 6, 9, 11, 18, 24, 36 48, and 54 . The default is set to Use best Rate. NOTE: The default value for this property is set for maximum performance. Therefore, It is not recommended for home users to change the value. Only network administrators or technicians with wireless LAN experience should attempt to make any changes.
