    I believe they are referring to the Windows 7 64-bit OS on your laptop. Also check out the thread I referenced in my previous post, if setting up your router fails to resolve the issue.

    You know fusion1337 i read up on it and it may be good for others but as of right now i would probably complicate things more by adding another o.s. To my rig. Because as i'm finding out i dont know enough about windows 7 yet. Lololol

    What i think i'm going to do is just a clean win7 install and start back over. I might wait to do this when i get my ssd and do it all at once. I haven't made up my mind yet. I'll move all my programs i like over to my ext. hdd and start fresh to see if my speed comes back up. Only question i have is if i use the factory win 7 install will i get the bloatware like i would if i used the recovery cd's?

    Yes, a factory restore reverts to the OS plus all ASUS stuff that you've seen
    the very first time you powered on your G74.

    A restore from the ASUS hidden partition using F9 will produce identical results to using the recovery DVD's, only faster. Both restore all the ASUS Bloatware.

    There were a number of recommendations in the article I referenced previously which can be done without a restore.

    dstrakele i tried many of the fixes in the article with nothing helping. the only thing i didn't get to do was mess with my router or call netgear to see if maybe it needed a firmware update or whatnot because i'm back in the gulf of mexico working again for another week. i'm very baffled to why i cant seem to get this firgured out. whether it's a windows problem or a problem with hardware or what. i don't understand but thank you for that article. it led me to read many others just like it. so i tried using many of the other fixes that people were trying with some good results. i am going to buy a different router though. looking at the top of the line netgear because my wife and i have always had good luck with them

    ok guys. now i'm having a different issue here. now while i'm at work using the company wifi ( which i've never had a problem with before) is shutting off on it's own after around 10 minutes at a time. then i have to disconnect and reconnect to get it to work again. i think that somewhere along the lines of trying alot of fixes to repair my slow download speed i may have messed something up. this has got me a little worried. HELP PLEASE!

    Are you matching Security and Encryption of your company's router? Otherwise it may be disconnecting you as a matter of security.

    If they are correctly set, you might try switching from n protocol to b/g.

    Yeah i was on 802.1n. One of the fixes i read about was switching to 802.11 a/n/g i believe. So i tried that. I'll have to look at changing that back.
