New Update Available

Link removed due to an error I discovered in the Wireless Icon in the taskbar, it always shows an exclamation mark even if you have an internet connection

Installed, no issues, still only connecting at 64mbps
The Installer will allow you to uninstall the previous version which I did. Then installed the driver. I haven't had issues with connecting in the past. So I don't know what benefit this version has. I only know I connect at 64mbps, My wife's HP win 8 Pro touch screen all in one connects at 120mbps. Not a real problems for me as my Internet connections is only 40mbps, I can plug in if I have any large transfer to make.

Do not install this guys, I just discovered that even though I have internet access, the networking icon on the bottom right in the taskbar displays an excalamation mark and says no internet access even though I have internet.

Same thing with 10.0.0.221

Back to the stable 10.0.0.75 it doesn't have that issue

Yup, showing 72.2 Mbps.

And that might be related to something else on your system Fire, as I don't have that issue. Never had it with the one before this either.

it's fine here; i use that for a month or two already (for machines preloaded with w7 and atheros AR9485 wifi/bt hybrid card, you can use this in w7 and w8).

previously i had a 64mbps; with this i have 72.2mbps.

speed up to 75 Mbps -> router Channel Bandwidth is set @ 20MHz or 20/40MHz, to go full speed 150 Mbps must be set @ 40MHz

Important update guys, I just tried installing the original driver that came with my ASUS G75VW which is: Atheros AR9485 Driver 9.2.0.469

I got 86.6 MBPS!!

The AR9485 9.2.0.469 driver fluctuates speeds a lot at the cost of signal quality strength (going from 5 bars to 3.) That driver is pure ****. The only thing that changes panel wise is the support for "Dynamic Mimo Power Saving," which means **** when this laptop isn't meant for battery saving features at all.

Some people have all the luck, My D-Link DIR-655 is only giving me 56, My Wife's is getting 130 off the same router. I don't have the issue that Fire Reports mine shows connected to the Internet and I am connected. I don't see anything different so far?
