We are aware of an issue where laptop or netbook systems using Intel Atom 26xx and 28xx processors and Intel wireless cards such as the 6235 may deliver less than expected wireless throughput.
The wireless signal strength shows a good signal however the wireless performance may fluctuate, depending upon the wireless environment.
We are pleased to be able to announce the availabilty of the pre-release 188.8.131.52 Windows 7 32bit driver which resolves this issue. Further release versions of this driver will be available on the Intel web site shortly. There is no 64-bit driver as these Atom platforms do not support 64-bit Windows.
Recommendation: As with any wireless driver, please test this driver in your environment for suitable performance and interoperability. Ensure that you uninstall all previous Intel wireless drivers and reboot before installing this replacement driver, as some of the driver version numbers are not consistent.
The 184.108.40.206 driver supports the following Intel wireless card models:
Note: In any situation it is always advisable to disable the bluetooth radio to improve 2.4GHz wireless performance, unless bluetooth connectivity is required.
