    Is your ethernet adapter fully up-to-date?

    Could be a driver issue, try using drivers from Asus' site and see if it helps the situation. If you're already using drivers from their site then uninstall them and use the drivers in Windows. If neither of those help you can either buy and install a different wireless card, send the card in to Asus for a replacement, or if it hasn't been 14 days from your purchase get a replacement at Best Buy.

    right. you don't need to burn recovery dvd's

    the sp1 iso is enough, + atk kbfilter and chipset drivers.

    using windows' built in backup feature, you can make a recovery image stored on hard drive or dvds. That way, you don't have to reinstall all your programs.

    The catalyst 11.9 seems to have nothing new in it. Version 8.863 display drivers.

    you should still email asus. that bios 'tinkering' is unacceptable just to get the usb ports to work.

    You need to manually uninstall the display drivers from device manager and make sure to check the box to delete driver files. Then install the new drivers.

    You've got the wrong one. Make sure to get the Mobility mod. It'll be version 8.89 display drivers. I'm going to test them on Deus Ex and see how they are. I'm also going to see if overclocking works now.

    Edit: Overclocking the 6650m is STILL BROKEN in 11.9 RCx. It crashes and gives BSOD just like 11.7 and 11.8. Very disappointing

    I was looking at the wrong one :p.

    Well are you noticing any better performance otherwise? I believe the latest asus drivers allow overclocking, and they work very well for the games. I don't see any reason not to use the Asus ones unless 11.9 offers some stellar crossfire improvement.

    Revision 2 of my Cooler Master NotePal U1 Cooler, modified with 2 Cooler Master 120mm fans.. Still not sure how it will perform on the Asus since I left the Asus in my apt and I'm not at my apt for a few days.
