I just reset my computer (which was super difficult and problematic in itself), installed my drivers from asus site via ethernet (including the wireless driver), tried to connect to my wireless but can't. It just tells me "No Connections Available". So I go online via ethernet and start googling. I've tried several things to try to fix it. Re-installed the drivers. Tried Backtracker but Backtracker thinks my comp is a desktop or something cause it says that Backtracker is only for Notebook PCs and quits. I don't even remember everything I've done over the last 5-6hours trying to get my wifi working again.

In my device manager, it says I'm missing the drivers for Network Controller, PCI Simple Communications Controller, and SM Bus Controller. I try to install the drivers via online (ethernet) but it tells me it can't find any drivers for them. Asus site doesn't have them (at least I can't find them) and I have no idea where to get them, google has let me down!

Anyway, if anyone has any advice or solutions, it would be greatly appreciated!!

Asus RoG G750JH-DB71
first drive: 128gb SSD RAID0 (with windows installed on it)
second drive: 128gb SSD RAID0
third drive: 1TB HD

Also, apparently the SSD's (or at least one of them) are divided into a whole bunch of partitions, which I did not do.

Thanks for any and all help!

ghostmeow, the G750JH comes with a 2 x 128GB RAID0 boot. The original partitioning of the 256GB RAID0 split the space into 2 mounted partitions along with a 20GB recovery partition.

From the symptoms I would start with loading the latest v9.x.x.x series Intel INF chipset driver from Intel, for a start.

Update: I just wrote up how I update the Intel Chipset drivers in detail here:

If you backed up the OS recovery via Asus Backtracker onto a USB 3.0 16GB flash drive, I would use that to restore the OS back to the RAID0, that will contain all the drivers you need, and then you can use Windows update and download newest drivers to complete the install.

If you no longer have the ability to restore via F9 from power on, and don't have the recovery flash drive, without a list of driver names / versions from the Programs and Features control panel you will need to figure out which drivers apply - by trying them all until 1 installs and works - be sure and uninstall and reboot after each install/uninstall.

Asus doesn't update driver downloads for products very long after release, so many of the G750JH download support area drivers are now way out of date. You can use the list as a reference as to what may have been installed on your laptop out of the box, the list will contain all the drivers for all the hardware components that might be installed - the G750JH didn't have a lot of variance in sub-models so that is good :)

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.
