Dir655 B1 2.10NA can't connect in WiFi N-Only mode

Situation is as follows:
DIR 655 configured WPA2, etc (reset the router, only config is: trans. rate: MCS 12, N-Only mode).

I have two computers connecting to this router on wifi. One has no problems. The laptop will not connect if the router is in N-Only mode. Any other mode (n/g mixed, g only, etc.) work fine. The network card is a Realtek RTL8188CE and N is enabled. WPA2 is enabled.

Any help/ideas appreciated, thanks!

Normal. Leave on auto.

Recommended settings for single mode N is WPA2 and AES only, Transmission Rate at Best or Auto. Auto 20/40Mhz. Changing the Transmission rate only slows the connection down and reduces performance.
