I have this wifi adapter in my book and its drivers makes me unhappy. I just don't have connection in my room distanced about 12-15 meters form router. The thing is that under windows, signal is very good so, it have to be connected to software drivers not hw issue.
I searched the forum, and I found that under 3.4 kernel there were problems, but I try this anyway:
modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1
..and it did NOT help.
# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"zenit" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: F8:D1:11:8D:74:18 Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=15 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off Link Quality=54/70 Signal level=-56 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:9 Missed beacon:0
Its really annoying to move to windows every time I am in my room.
Is someone experiencing similar issue? What should I do about this?
Thanks for recommendations.

I have this card, but it works fabulously for me... though I have no idea how it would work with windows, so I cannot comment on your comparison.
I see you were given the idea somewhere about having the module loaded with certain options. I do hope that after you wrote that modprobe.d file, you either unloaded and then loaded the module (or rebooted).
If you want to see other options for the module, use
$ modinfo iwlwifi
I am not sure if any of it will help you, as I have not had any issues, but I have heard that disabling the 5ghz helps sometimes.
If you want to see what options your module is loaded with, you can use systool like this
# systool -m iwlwifi -av
thanks, woofy, this helped. Its really better when running without 'a' standard... but still its not as it should be
