    **SOLVED!** Wi-fi Problem on G75VX Windows 7 (plus fn+f9 problem, solved too)

    Hi everybody! just wanted to share the news with everybody, because I know that a lot of people had the same problem as I did...
    After downgrading from Win8 to Win7 in my G75VX, it was impossible to find the right network adapter driver... that meant, no wi-fi! :/ but NOT ANYMORE!

    Credits go to @rledge21 for sending me this link, which after months of LAN limitation, got my wireless working:

    http://www.asus.com/Networking/PCEAC...rt_Download_30

    I sincerely hope this driver solves all of your problems, people...



    Also, people were having trouble with the fn+f9 command (as I was).

    Credits go to @cjonash for the solution: "I managed to get the fn+F9 to work by installing the touchpad driver from the supplied CD (it is the Win 8 version, but it also works for Win 7). I just run the install exe-file."

    My fn+f9 didn't work either. Installed this driver, rebooted... et voilá! It works now. No more random clicks while writing...



    as an asian woman driver would say: "good luck, everyone else!!" (*proceeds to turn 5 lanes in a row with no warning and without looking*)

    Yes. I tried this driver on my laptop and it worked.

    This is part of the message that rledge21 sent me:

    (...) Anyway, I got my wireless working and wanted to share my solution with you since I can't post on the forums currently. btw my device id is 43b1 - i couldnt view the image you posted with your device id, but perhaps it is similar. after a few hours of googling, i found out there is a WIFI card asus makes that uses the same broadcom chipset with the id 43b1, and that it has Win7 drivers. I downloaded them at the below link, and everything worked! best of luck!

    http://www.asus.com/Networking/PCEAC...rt_Download_30


    I didn't quite understand it, but the matter of fact is that the driver from that link worked.

    Here is a picture. Tested the connection through wireless, it works.

    Er.. new here... anyways, would that work on a VX model with b/g/n modem? i haven't had the chance to get the ASUS G75VX but already planning to. However, i feel like holding back due to the different WLAN that you and I would have. Please reply ._.'

    Sorry, new comer here...
    So, my question is, does the wifi driver work for the b/g/n card? the one provided in the link? I plan on getting the laptop very soon and a bit skeptical of getting it since it has the wifi issue

    It does Not have a wifi issue. The laptop came installed with windows 8 and there are only drivers for windows 8, he installed windows 7 thus because windows 8 is newer the drivers did not work properly on windows 7.

    Can anyone advise how to install that wireless driver? There's no .exe and I can't do it through the device manager since the card doesn't show up there. Thanks for any help.

    PM: After you extract the drivers to a directory you can point to, look under your unknown devices, the card should be visible there.

    Also, I had to reinstall the touchpad drivers twice to get the FN + F9 issue sorted, thanks for getting me going, forum!

    Reduced Speed with substitute driver

    Maybe it's just me, but I feel like that (substitute) driver works, but has speed issues. I used to have download speeds around 25MB, and now it won't get over 10MB download speed. I've checked other computers on my network, and it's not a bandwidth problem. Anyone else experiencing this? Is it the driver? Is it the card? Is it a setting that I'm missing? I've shut off all of the power issues, and have the computer running in High Performance energy mode. Thanks for any insight!!!
