Hey guys,
I recently bought a G750JZ, installed Windows 8.1 and noticed that every time I log into Windows at start-up I have do disconnect and reconnect from my WiFi router in order to connect to the internet. Otherwise, my laptop connects to the router but with a limited connection. It also works if I press Fn+F2 twice to enable and disable airplane mode. My Network adapters are:

Qualcomm Atheros AR8171/8175 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
and
Killer Wireless-N 1202 Network Adapter

Also, the first two or three days after I installed Windows 8.1 the Wifi card worked just fine and connected to the internet at every start-up.

Thank you in advance,
Radu

Radu121, you didn't post what router make/model and firmware version you are talking with your G750JZ...

I had problems with my G750JH communicating with my ASUS RT-AC68U, I updated to the latest firmware for the ASUS RT-AC68U and was stable after that. I had already updated my G750JH laptop Killer Wireless driver.

Update your router firmware - go directly to the vendor site and download from there - don't rely on the built-in router update service - it doesn't always get the latest.

Here is the list of places I look for updates for my G750JH; the best way to get a stable fully functioning G750/G751 is to update all the drivers / apps to the latest Windows 8.1 release.

The G750JW/JX/JH/JM/JS/JZ download areas haven't had new updates for a while, BIOS updates still happen in your model's support area, so check there from time to time.

The G750/G751/551/500/etc share the same basic hardware components; check support download areas for new hardware for newer drivers.

Asus maintains central support areas for hardware component features common to all products, those areas usually have the latest drivers after new hardware releases, sometimes there is a lag before the newer drivers show up there, so still to new product releases support downloads for the latest drivers.

Asus G751 Support / Download areas - Asus hasn't updated all the versions of these support areas, this link discusses the 3 locations were started independantly and not sync'd/updated through to the latest driver releases - check them all to be sure.

Here are the latest Asus posted VGA drivers currently 347.25 ; it's better to get the latest from Nvidia - 347.88

Asus doesn't modify the drivers, they release the identical driver packages as Nvidia releases.

Asus stopped updating their Intel INFUpdate support area, so go directly to Intel to get the latest chipset INF - currently 10.0.26

Thx a lot!
I updated my Intel INFUpdate from their support area at
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...816&ProdId=816

and I haven't had any problems the last 5 days.

Radu, thats good to know, it was the chipset driver, not the actual wireless driver, interesting. :)

Note that copying URL's from a post won't work for really long URL's as a click/drag to end of line / copy - you need to right click and then select "Copy Link Location" to get the whole URL, here it is again:

Now that all your drivers are up to date, you can kick back for a few months before checking again. Stability is good :)

So, unfortunately, the problem returned after I updated my nVIDIA GTX880M driver to the latest version. I have no idea how these could be related.
