    Earlier today the Killer 1535 wireless card in my MSI GT83 broke. it had been acting up for a couple dfays now but after having to force shutdown the laptop after a game hardlocked it, it disconnects so frequently the laptop is useless. This is the 6th wifi card ive had just outright break like this in a year.

    I've done the big three: flush DNS, netsh winsock reset, and reset.log hit

    Ive updated the drivers

    I did my duty and didn't install the killer suite

    I've set windows to not turn it off to save power

    Ive reset the router

    I've tried powerline adapters (they arent working after a house rewiring)

    The last wifi card i bought (an intel 8260 to replace a 7260) was unfortunately custom made by Super Satan. it would crash its drivers upon boot and bluescreen the laptop if you tried to re-enable it.

    Can anyone with this kindof bad luck reccomend a card that actually works?. So far the solution has unfortunately been replace the entire laptop, but i just cant keep doing that.

    Buy an Intel 8265. Forget the "custom made job" and go with bog-standard. I did that and bought an Msata---->M2NGFF adapter and it worked happy as Larry in my last laptop, a Gigabyte P34W v3. It too replaced a 7260 in the Gigabyte and is now working happily in my new GE62 7RF Apache pro without adapter - was the first upgrade I did, replkacing the intel 3168 that came with it.

    Clean out all your craptastic drivers and have a go with the 8265. Mine is working flawlessly.

    Can you link exactly where you bought it? I dont want another Super Satan LLC manufactured one like what happened when i just got the top rated on amazon (the 8260).

    I got my 8260 and 8265 from UK sellers on ebay, I'd heard about the fakes and I thought some of the quotes were a little *too* cheap . Where are you ?

    United states. The main option here seems to be amazon or maybe newegg.

    Did you check the m.2 slot works correctly, I mean if its functioning alright? Its strange case. Did you run a Preboot System Assessment that ships with MSI?
    If any of those tests report an error, contact MSI. I think its faulty power delivery to WLAN or your board.

    Back sorry. And not sure how to check that. i'm not having the elder god of all errors with a 1435 too; Default Gateway Not Available. I gave up on the GT83 wireless after i finally got the powerline adapters working because id be more likely to suddenly inherit goldman sachs than get the wifi card working.

    I've never heard of this much trouble with a Wifi card, 6x is amazing.

    I've never even heard of 2x failures, usually someone gets a 1 new Wifi card and that's it.

    At this point I'd question the correct function of the slot you are plugging them into, and get MSI to RMA that motherboard.

    Its not just one laptop, The Gt80 had a faulty intel 7260 card and then a satanic intel 8260 one. The razer had a bad 7260. The previous AW13 had a bad card. The GT83's 1535 is dead, and now the AW17's 1435 seems to be on its way out.

    Wow, are you Magneto's son, or something? ;)

    IDK what's going on with your laptops, but this isn't normal...
