So I have this Linksys by Cisco WRT160Nv3 Wireless N Router.
And my HP Pavilion DV5 1138-nr wireless card says it supports 802.11a/b/g/draft-n
It shows my laptop connected as Wireless-G. WHY!?
I want to enable the router to be N Only, but I use other devices that don't support N.
Is there any way I can get it to use the Draft-N feature of my network card?
I have my security set to WPA2 Personal with a 10 digit passphrase.
The Wireless N works on some other devices, such as my XBOX, but it doesn't work on my laptop.
Thanks in Advanced

1. Please write your notebook product number (p/n) and country of purchase.
2. Go to:
Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Network Adapters
Which wireless card is listed there? Please write full model name.

You need to make sure of a few things...
1. Make sure your router is set to mixed if you have wireless G devices.
2. Make sure the transmission rate is set to Auto (20-40) if you have G & N devices.
3. Make sure your wireless security is set to WPA2/WPA and that on each of your wireless devices, you configure the WPA2 security as AES and not TKIP.
