Just purchased the G75VW and i'm having issues with my download speeds. I noticed this when downloading some TV shows on itunes. This new laptop downloads A LOT slower than any of the other computers in the house. I know it's not a router problem, all of the other devices I have download at the proper speed/rate. It's definitely something with this laptop. Anyone else run into this problem ? Plz help!!

Folks have reported upgrading to the latest Atheros WiFi driver has resolved their connection issues. I'd be willing to bet it may help your download speeds as well.

Where would I go about getting that driver? The Atheros site doesn't offer any drivers for the AR9485WB-EG despite having a product feature page for it.

I remember finding a proper Atheros driver was weird on the G73 too, I ended up following a link someone posted that went to some Russian website.

-EDIT-

I did a little digging at NoteBookReview. Found it.

test if speed are as they should be if you hook it up with a cable please.
otherwise read trough the numerious wifi topics on here, does seem like there are a few fixes around.
and install wifi driver from manifacture, as they may be better/newer than the ones on asus.

just noticed your edit xD did it work ?
