ASUS, and everyone else for that matter, should take a look at
this study released by Intel (http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/white-papers/usb3-frequency-interference-paper.pdf).

The bottom line is that USB3 has an impact (varied depending upon circumstances detailed in the document) on your 2.4GHz SNR (signal to noise ratio), thus impacting throughput/performance on wifi.

For those of you that use some sort of USB3 device, try a different port...but it IS impacting your 2.4GHz performance.

I think when Dongle to be used in conjunction with the USB 3.0 flash drive and wireless mouse, wireless mouse Dongle best use to extend the line to take out far enough position to successfully use

The link I provided was the same document as what you did...just at a different website, but yes. However, it's not JUST with wireless mice. It's ANYTHING that runs within the 2.4GHz spectrum. That means wireless G, your wireless mice, Bluetooth, and a host of other devices.
