Hello,

I bought a new G750JX a couple weeks ago, and have been having trouble with wireless. First, when the laptop came, it turns out that there was not even a wireless driver installed (strange, but easy to fix for a techie like me). I managed to download one (I have tried both Broadcomm and Qualcomm, both seem to perform the same) using ethernet and install it. After installing it I noticed that quite often while browsing the internet, the connection would suddenly drop and come back. Performing a ping (1 second intervals) against google.com illustrates the issue:

I know it's my laptop and not my wireless because I am able to ping from other devices fine at the same time I receive no response from my G750JX. When connected to ethernet, I receive a consistent ping:

Like I said, I have tried a couple different drivers, and resetting my wireless, so I'm not sure what the issue is. I am about 10 feet from the router, so signal strength is not an issue. As you can see, when a packet does go through it is quick (in the 20ms range). I'm running Windows 8, which came installed with it.

Has anyone else had this issue? Could I have a bad wireless card? What else can I try to fix it and how can I determine the cause of the issue? Thanks.

how about getting another card from another laptop or from ebay (ultimate n 6300), try to see if it's that, or it's the antenna's which are not properly connected :) (open it and try to see that)

What version of the drivers are you using? Asus has posted new drivers, under the G750 for 8.1 x86 - which might install on Windows 8 - why haven't you updated to 8.1?

So far all of these wireless issues have been cured by updating to the latest driver(s), without resorting to replacing the MiniPCI card :)

I just started experiencing very slow wireless connectivity in my month old 750JX and found this thread while seeking a solution. The drivers mentioned by hmscott are posted by Asus for the 750JW. Are they cross-compatible with the 750JX? My 750JX has the Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter and the Qualcomm Atheros AR8171-8175 PCI-E Ethernet Controller and I would like to use the 12/18/13 updated drivers if they are compatible. Thank you.

should work... i dont think they have two separate broadcom ac adapters between the 3 models... likley the same ac adapter between the jw and jx if its the same manufacturer you should be fine

I have an E slate I did a factory restore and I was having the same problem. was driving me nuts. tried everything you did with no luck. I then proceeded to redo the factory restore and now it fine and rock solid once again. I still cant tell you what the cause is but I think it had to do with a bad registry entry.

i am experiencing the same ****. Maybe diagnosing right but i am not sure. Try to download "inSSIDer Home".
This program can scanning in your area for other wifis. İf they are interfering your area or not. İts a furustrating thing.
Trust me i researched very likely. So according to program u can say i have clean "wifi channel" or not. İf not U should change it
from your router or modem. Unfortenately i am using iphone 4 hotspot which is cant change it but u can.(assuming i have bad wifi channel)

like this u should not use overlapp channels.

I have a G750JX also, in fact i just bought it few weeks ago and I'm kind of disappointed :(. I have the same, exact issue as "FireandIce", my router is just two steps away from my computer and i cant connect. Sometimes it receives internet about an hour, more or less, however it disconnects right away. Even if I reset the router, it doesn't changes at all. I have Windows 8.1 installed and up to date with any upgrades. I dont know whats the issue, any suggestions? :confused:

I have G750JX Aus, came with the Atheros. My wireless is 100% fine, works just like my old Intel 5300. I did mod the settings so it didn't "save power" through device manager and made the range high. But at 10 meters + through 4 solid double brick walls, I still get wireless to 4 bars.

Router - CG3000 ( I hate this thing. )

My driver was found by right clicking the device and updating it through the internet to version - 10.0.0.263
