Intel Centrino Ultimate - N 6300 not connecting to Motorola SBG6580 surfboard cable modem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am having severe connection problems. I picked up a eVga Z77 "Stinger"mini itx motherboard and it has a mini pci -e slot. I originally picked up a Intel Centrino Advanced 6250 wireless card. Upon loading windows and installing the appropriate driver, I show no wifi connections. I checked my cables 3-4 times everything looks good. I then (thinking) I had a bad card picked up a Intel Centrino Ultimate N 6300 from newegg. Same thing happens as before I tried 2db antennas and even 8 db ones as well but still no luck. On the surfboard SBG 6580 there is a relatively new firmware with ARRIS and shows a few extra settings that were not available before. I tried 2.4ghz and 5ghz and still nothing. I am about 20 feet from the modem but my laptop (dell) sees over 10 wifi connections at my computer while I don't see any. I messed with some of the settings on the Modem but still nothing. Tried using N mode only still nothing. I looked online and seen people having speed problems with the 6300 and certain modems but they were all still connecting. Anyone have any thoughts? I know there are a host of options to choose from as to why it might not be connecting but I am about to just buy a new 1150 board and processor that has wifi built in.

Just an update from what I have read or found that mentioned briefly. The SBG6580 works on either 2.4ghz or 5ghz and apparently the 2 Intel cards work on both simultaneously. Not sure if this is true or not but still looking into it. I picked up a startech mini pci e card from newegg for 21.99 which uses a Realtek RTL8192CE. Will see if this fixes the problem.
