    Configuring a NIC?


    Long story short I had to switch from a network adapter (USB) to a full network interface card. Ever since it's been really, really slow. (it was the same way in the other brand new computer I took it from).

    I'm pretty sure it's the settings, but things like beacon intervals and TX power levels make no sense to me...

    I can list the items in the advanced setup tab and you can tell me generally what they're supposed to be at. But here's some quick specs:

    Windows 7
    Encore ENEWI-2XNAx wireless NIC (PCIE)
    Wireless cable modem, 7Mbps down, not sure on IEEE protocol or range...
    And it's just a SOHO network with maybe 7-11 connections on it.


    And here's what I need configured:
    802.11d (Enable? Disable?)
    Beacon interval (20-1000)
    Preamble mode (long only? Short and long?)
    Roaming sensitivity level (high, low, middle, disable)
    TX power level (25%-50%-75%-100%, auto)
    Wireless mode (802.11b, 802.11b/g, 802.11b/g/n)
