I have been having problems with N mode. When I execute iwconfig get wlan0 IEEE 802.11b/g and when I boot in Mac os my wireless card info is :

Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0
Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n

And I am able to connect to N mode wireless network. But on ubuntu, this has been a problem for me when trying to connect to access point with phy mode N. After some research I found on the linux wireless documentation that

802.11a/n (5GHz) modes and power management are not yet supported HT phy cards (4331)

Is there a way to get it to work?
