So I just received my new DM4x laptop and I am having problems with my wireless N. When I connect to a wireless G netowork everything works fine. As soon as I step into wireless N my download speeds drop to the point where it's telling me I need to wait 1 day to download a 10 mb file!! After I disable wireless N in the network card settings I am back up to G speeds. This is aggrivating because I cant utilize my new laptops full download speed potential! The netowork card is the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030. I messed around with the channels, bands, and wireless security setup as it was mentioned in another article but nothing helps. The network manager says that I am connected at 65 Mbps while on the N network but that is not true, as I am unable to get even 1mbps on speedtest.net. Please, someone help me out if you have any answers. Thanks

I ran into the same issue. I was on a support call with HP to track down the issue but after 45 mins the recommendation was to return the laptop. 2nd one has the same problem. Very slow 802.11n speeds on the dm4-2033cl hp pavilion. in device manager I set the 802.11n mode to disabled, and it now has download speeds about 20x faster than when that property was enabled. The laptop has win7 home premium 64 bit.
Today i updated the firmware on my linksys wrt310n router. That solved the802.11n problem. I am now able to connect using 802.11n just fine and am seeing improved download speeds on all my computers that connect wirelessly. Seems the old firmware allowed some systems to connect OK on 802.1n while others had problems. Now 802.11n seems to work fine for all of them.

I seem to be experiencing almost the exact same thing. With my DV6-6195 which has the same intel wireless-N 1030 card.. With Wireless N enabled and my speeds are sooooo slow... Wireless G and its about 17mbs on my 50 mb connection...
Now for the strange part.. I dissabled the Bluetooth in the device manager and now my speeds fly the way they should on Wireless N. Getting solid 48.6mbs every time. But soon as i re enable bluetooth in the device manager, Im back to slower than turtle speeds...Which sucks cause i like using the bluetooth for my razer bluetooth mouse Trying to still figure out why the bluetooth device is the culprit and how to make them both work at the same time.
Maybe that might help...

I have a dv6 6141 with n 1030 and have experience the same problem. I conctacted hp support and they told me to do a recovery to see if there was a software problem. I did and problem solved so I thought.....I then updated the wireless with the newest driver and problem was back.
Now I never give up so I uninstalled the new driver and went back to the old one 22.214.171.124 and the speed is back with bluetooth on - I have tested on several speedtesting sites and no problem so far. I can use my wireless bluetooh mouse now while on the internet..yeaahh...

disable bluetooth in device manager and test ... seems like the issue is cause by BT intergration using 2.4ghz and no other way, you can try and change freq from 2.4ghz to 5 in card settings or router.
