wireless nightmare 05/28/2013
relatively stable connection
blaring blue LED is obnoxious
I spent 6 hours trying to install the drivers for this device to no avail. I started with my old adapter still installed, windows was unable to locate drivers for the AsusN13. Ok, so I run the install disk packaged with the adapter... success! So I attempt to open google chrome, where I'm greeted with a blank screen, followed by the "all systems go" changing to "no internet access". Alright then, we just need to update! Well, the Asus website is a labyrinth with dozens of links that could potentially fix my issue.. I try the one labeled "drivers", this should solve my problem! Nope, it's just a few worthless .dll and .dat files that have no home and windows can't recognize them as drivers. Well then, let's try the updater utility, it's designed to fix problems like this, right? NOPE. Ran the updater, is packed full of applications that can't even recognize the device as being plugged in at all.
I fiddled with various drivers and utilities hosted by Asus for quite long enough. You know, if you can't just package the device with drivers that are going to work, maybe you should just stick to motherboards, eh? Or at least, make the updater a simple download/run/install fix. Thanks for the great PC hardware, but leave the networking to the professionals, Asus.
