Hi everyone. I recently built a new Windows 7 computer with an i5-3570k processor and a gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H B75 motherboard. I purchased an ASUS PCE-N15 R wireless adapter to go with it but have been having a rather bizarre issue (plugged into a pcie 16x running at 4x slot). There are times when the speed is amazing, and the connection is steady, but then there are other times where I have full bars, the network status indicates I have internet access and a connection speed of 54.0 mbps, but no data will transmit in either direction. Websites will not load, downloads will not work (in and out of browsers). I have disabled my proxies and swept for viruses. I have my laptop right next to it checking internet speeds and connectivity and they all seem steady. I was wondering if you guys could help me assess whether or not this sounds like a faulty wireless adapter?
When I choose to diagnose a connection, it tells me there was a "Problem with the wireless adapter or access point" and that it was fixed. Problem remains.
