I bought a recertified ASUS G72 from Newegg quite some time ago. From day one, the wireless card had issues. Rather then sending the laptop back for warranty work like a smart person normally would, I opted to just roll with the punches and fiddle to get it to work every day... The issue was, I'd start up, and I'd have the dreaded yellow triangle at the bottom of the screen, saying limited or no connectivity, or sometimes just no wireless period. I'd flick the wireless on/off switch on the side on and off, push FN+F2(WIFI), and troubleshoot only to have the troubleshooter mindlessly tell me "turn on wireless capability" until WIFI would eventually turn on. Until one day... That no longer worked. Nothing worked. So I went and bought some 20 dollar piece of crap Digital Totem USB WIFI dongle. It works, but also has issues periodically. Today I got fed up with having to unplug, replug, re-setup the dongle and decided I was gonna get to the bottom of this onboard WIFI chip situation. I opened up the bottom, found the card and unplugged and plugged it back into the mini pci slot. Tried again. Still nothing. Went online, looked for new drivers. Found one on ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows and tried updating, only to have it spit back at me "the best driver is already installed." BLA! Not only that but, Device Manager said it was an AR928X... So again i went online and google searched both "atheros ar928x not working" as well as the previous number AR9B51, only to come across a thread about ubuntu and performing some ridiculously confusing actions in the command prompt. I'm not using ubuntu though. Windows 7. I'm starting to wonder if I should get back online and buy a higher end dongle, or take 'er into the shop to have them crack this badboy open and get to the bottom of things. Any suggestions on what else I can try before I resort to that?
