    I just bought a new HP Pavillion desktop, and it came with a LITE-ON PCI Express wireless-n adapter using a Ralink driver. I have updated the driver to the latest version. The problem is I cannot connect to the 802.11n network I have set up. I can connect just fine to the 802.11g network (I'm using a Netgear dual band router). I have a laptop on the n network, and I get a signal just fine next to my desktop. I have tried the diagnostic tools packaged with the HP, and it says everything is fine on my adapter, but so far, no signal. My suspicion is that the n band is somehow not set up to work in it's default settings. These are the current driver settings, but changing them has not helped anything:

    Adhoc support for 802.11n = disabled
    Country region 2.4 ghz = #0 (1-11)
    Country region 5ghz = #7 (36-165)
    IEEE 802.11h = disabled
    Multimedia/Gaming environment = disabled
    Powersaving mode = MAX_PSP
    Radio on/off = enabled

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can check to see if the n part of my wireless n adapter is working or turned on?
