Intel wifi link 5100 512an драйвер

Обзор и прошивка беспроводного адаптера Intel WiFi Link 5100

На рынке можно встретить Wi-Fi чипы интегрированные (система на кристалле) и в качестве модуля. Интегрированные чаще всего применяются в смартфонах и в некоторых материнских платах. Модульные подключаются к системной плате через специальные разъемы (USB-порт, PCIe). Адаптер Intel WiFi Link 5100 принадлежит к последнему типу, что подключается к материнской плате через компьютерную шину PCI-Express.

Особенности

Адаптер Intel WiFi Link 5100 работает по набору стандартов IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/Draft-N, то есть поддерживает частоты беспроводной связи 2.4 ГГц и 5 ГГц. Выполнен в двух форм-факторах «Mini-Card» и «Half-mini Card», оба работают через подключение по PCI-E. Скорость приема достигает до 300 Мбит/с.

К сожалению, Intel прекратила выпуск этого продукта, и поддержки, как таковой он уже лишен. Последняя официальная версия драйвера датирована 1 июня 2016 года.

Поэтому Intel предупреждает о потенциальных уязвимостях, заблокировать которые не представится возможным с помощью устаревшего программного обеспечения.

Технические характеристики

Исполнение в двух форм-факторах – отличное решение для подключения в ноутбуки и компьютеры. Характеристики и размеры адаптера следующие:

  1. PCIe Mini Card – 50.95 мм x 30.00 мм x 3.30 мм.
  2. PCIe Half Mini Card – 26.80 мм x 30.00 мм x 3.30 мм.
  3. Вес 7 г и 4 г соответственно.
  4. Поддержка систем, работающих с двумя антеннами.
  5. Интерфейс подключения – PCI-E.
  6. LED-индикация – есть только в Mini Card.
  7. Рабочая температура 0 – 80 ℃.
  8. Поддержка ОС – Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 разрядностью 32 и 64 бит, Linux.
  9. IEEE WLAN стандарты11 a, b, g, WPA и WPA2, Wi-Fi Alliance Draft-N и 802.11 n.

Код моделей Mini Card: 512AN_MMW и 512AG_MMW. Код моделей Half Mini Card: 512AN_HMW и 512AG_HMW.

Но в целом, после установки драйверов, Windows отлично взаимодействует и через штатные способы подключения к беспроводным сетям.

Прошивка

Если в вашем устройстве установлен Intel WiFi Link 5100 и скорость ограничивается максимальными 54 Мбит/с, то с помощью прошивки можно изменить на abn, «разогнав» адаптер до заявленных 300 Мбит/с.

Чтобы прошить устройство, подключенное к компьютеру, работающему через операционную систему Windows:

  1. Скачайте RW Everything.
  2. Резервную копию EEPROM можно создать через утилиту DumpIWL. Разархивируйте данные в папку, запустите (тестировалось на 32-битной системе), нажмите «Read EEPROM», закройте, сохраните файл формата .bin.
  3. Нажмите правой кнопкой мыши по Пуск, откройте «Диспетчер устройств», выберите «Свойства» Wi-Fi адаптера.

Обратите внимание на Subsystem ID. Они могут быть:

  • Для Mini Card – 1206 – 11n disabled, OEM.
  • Для Mini Card 1201- 11n enabled, OEM.
  • Для Half Mini Card – 1306 – 11n disabled, OEM.
  • Для Half Mini Card – 1301 – 11n enabled, OEM.

Если адаптер с обозначением 1206 или 1306, прошивка поможет увеличить скорость до 300Мбит/с. Загрузите специальный скрипт для патча адаптера.

  1. В утилите RW Everything выберите Access – Command и одной строкой скопируйте код со скрипта (его можно открыть через блокнот). В начале кода указаны звездочки local0=0x********. Вместо них вписываем адрес карты (8 цифр), который записывали в 4 пункте.
  2. Перепроверьте, чтобы все сделали верно по инструкции. В противном случае вернуть сетевую карту к жизни не получится.
  3. Жмите Enter и ждите до появления текста, что команда успешно выполнена, а после еще минуту.
  4. Закрывайте утилиту и пускайте стандартным способом Windows на перезагрузку.
  5. После включения системы обнаружится новое устройство, для которого ОС постарается установить драйвера. В большинстве случаев установка драйверов завершится неудачно – не переживайте, все в порядке.
  6. Зайдите в свойства обновленного адаптера и в разделе «Дополнительно» выставите ширину канала «Авто».

Обзор и прошивка беспроводного адаптера Intel WiFi Link 5100

  • Готово, теперь адаптер в диапазоне 40 МГц может достигать скорости в 150 Мбит/сек на каждую независимую антенну (с технических характеристик помним, что их две).

Проверить скорость можно через торрент.

Обзор и прошивка беспроводного адаптера Intel WiFi Link 5100

Или же посмотреть среднее значение в свойствах беспроводного сетевого подключения. Если преград между раздаваемым Wi-Fi маршрутизатором и адаптером нет, можно получить скорость, максимально приближенную к заявленной в характеристиках.

Заключение

Сетевой адаптер Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100 использовался для ноутбуков и компьютеров в качестве модуля с подключением по шине PCI-E. Сейчас поддержка данного продукта прекращена. Спецификация позволяла достигать скоростей до 300 Мбит/с, но, к сожалению, в моделях с кодом 512AG_MMW и 512AG_HMW диапазон в 40 МГц, на котором работает 801.11n, на аппаратном уровне блокировался. С помощью прошивки модуля это ограничение можно снять.

I am having an issue getting the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN on my HP Pavilion dv7-1275dx to connect to my wireless router (Zyxel P334WT). It would intermittently connect, then drops off for no apparent reason, and then refuses to connect for days. I contacted HP support and we spent three hours trying to fix the problem, to no avail. Strangely enough, when I stick my Netgear WG111v2 USB wireless adapter into the computer, I am able to connect to my network with no problem. The computer runs Windows Home Vista 64 bit. Thanks in advance for your help.

I’ll assume you’re connecting to a network you’re positive is yours — if you’re not absolutely sure the broadcasting SSID from your Router is yours, then it’s easy to connect to a neighboring network and have a really bad connection due to distance issues. Your SSID should be a unique name that you can recognize — the Router’s default isn’t adequate, as too many people also leave the default SSID in place. When you have several of the same brand of Router within range of each other, and they all broadcast the same network ID, it’s impossible to determine which network is which, unless security is enabled and you have to use a key or password.

If you’re sure your SSID is yours and you’re connecting to your Router, then the other most likely problem is your Intel adapter’s settings. Just like your Router has wireless settings, so too does your wireless adapter. If it’s not set to match your Router’s Wireless Mode and Standard/Wide Channel settings, you’ll get exactly the symptoms you’re describing. The adapter’s power setting is also important — if the system is allowed to shut it down for power savings, it will drop your signal strength in a heartbeat.

The following assumes that you or someone you trust understands Network Device Access and settings. You must be able to access your Router to determine it’s current settings, or change them as necessary.

First you need to get your Router’s current Wireless Settings, and note what type of Router it is — Wireless G, N, B, etc.

To access the Intel Adapter’s settings;

1. Go to your Control Panel, open up Network and Sharing.

2. Click on Manage Wireless Networks, then on Adapter Properties.

3. Click on the Advanced tab first.

Check and adjust the following settings:

802.11n Channel Width — Set to 20mhz or to match your Router’s setting.

802.11n Mode — Set to «Enabled» if your Router’s Wireless Mode is set to Wireless N only. If not, Set to «Disable».

Ad Hoc Channel 802.11 b/g — 11

AH Power Management — User choice (Mine is Disabled to keep the system from shutting it off))

AH Quality of Service (QoS) — WMM Enabled if using Router Quality of Service settings and WMM is Enabled. Disabled if not, but you should be using it on your Router.

Roaming Aggressiveness — Highest

Throughput Enhancement — Enabled

Transmit Power — Highest

Wireless Mode — Either 3, 4, 5, or 6 if N mode isn’t enabled. When 802.11N modes are enabled, it doesn’t matter.
The Wireless Mode should match your Router’s settings. If your Router is set to Mixed, then select B/G, B/G/N (if an N Router).

If the Router is set to G only, then set the adapter to G.

After that, go to the Power Management tab and check the box that denies your system permission to turn off the adapter. If allowed to, it can turn it off whenever any given process determines it needs to shut it down.

Click Apply, then Okay. Restart your system and do a POR (Power-On Reset) on your Router. Remember to keep it unplugged for at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in.

Go to Network and Sharing, then remove any existing profiles. Setup new ones, and connect to the Router. On the Network and Sharing window, click on Status to the right of the Connection label, then verify your network speed and signal strength.

Holy ***bleep*** you didn’t bother to read or understand the problem!

And you obviously didn’t read or understand anything that was posted or you’d know what it meant.

«Vista 64 doesn’t play nice with anything other than WPA2» Well, since WPA2 is the recommended security protocol for most applications today, that’s not really much of a revelation, is it? In fact, WPA2 actually is a hindrance to wireless connection speed. But the user made it clear it has nothing to do with the Router.

The person stated that his Netgear adapter runs fine — indicating that even if he did have another security protocol other than WPA2, or even if he’s using WPA2, it’s not a problem or an issue. If it was a problem at the Router, both adapters would be having problems. Therefore,since one adapter works fine and the other doesn’t, the issue logically is with the Intel adapter itself since Vista’s Network Connection setup allows for setting up connections for 2 separate adapters, and being able to switch between them at will.

I see this problem every day, so I already knew to recommend setting up the Intel adapter to match the user’s Router settings, because it’s the one thing that no one bothers to do. They just assume it’ll connect and that’s it. But the newer Intel adapters can be and must be setup to match the Router’s wireless settings for optimum connection.

As far as «too much info», the problem with most is that they don’t put ANY info, just a random suggestion or criticism on what the person should’ve done to begin with to keep from getting into the problem they have. What I posted were the settings for that adapter based on a known good setup, allowing for the user’s matching settings. As a Professional, I understand that most people here either don’t or may not understand how to setup certain devices, so I take the time to tell them how because one, I know how to, and two, I do it for a living. And three, I’ve been fixing HP systems for over 20 years. All it takes is for the adapter’s Wireless mode settings to be off and the signal drops to nothing.

Now it might work and it might not — but it’s at least logical troubleshooting flow based on careful analysis of the reported symptoms, not a random suggestion hoping to get it right. But given the initial reported symptoms, I’d say the adapter is a good starting point, and not the Router.
