Hi, so basicaly my problem is stated in the title, I've tried everything, disabled the auto channel on router and fixed it on 3-7, checked powersaving and checked wifi card to be used at max performance even on battery, i even enabled ECN and congestion control in win7 and used Wi-fi Optimizer and i still couldn't pin point the issue.

According to it the signal is "Excelent" yet when i need it to be stable it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting automatically almost with a pace, i can't tell what may be causing this, i also disabled bluetooth.

 

Edit: I live in the outskirts and I used Xirrus Wi-fi Inspector to see if there are any other connections that could jam or overlap and mine is the only one, so it's not that.

[guess]

Have you checked power and heat? If it is dropping under load it could be either one.

Are there any other computers using the router?

 

Try connecting to the router with a Ethernet cable to make sure there isn't a problem with the router.

I had this problem on an old XP computer and the only way I was able to resolve it was to reset Winsock, Tcp/IP, and reinstall the wireless driver. I do know that sometimes intel wireless drivers can get wonky. They usually are good at updating the wireless drivers on their newer chipsets.

 

Right click the Wireless driver in Device Manager, select Properties, and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs. Copy and post the first line.

Try using a direct cable from the router to your device. It is more reliable than connecting it as a wireless connection.

The ethernet port on my f550jk is laughable, just search on youtube -  ethernet port 550j laptop and you will see that Asus did a terrible job at designing it.

Wifi drops even when there are no other devices using it, it does seem to drop more often when i'm gaming a bit or maybe that's just when i notice it the most.

The Ralink driver is the one from the Asus website that they link for my model.

Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

It's possible Asus is still linking an older Ralink driver. The latest ones are dated may and june of this year but I don't know your chipset. That is why I asked for the Vendor and Device ID in Device Manager.

PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_3290&SUBSYS_601011AD&REV_00

 

Date 4/9/2014

Driver version 5.0.46.0

 

It may be a bit outdated, what i've read elsewhere is that latest may not be most compatible so i left it be but i guess i can always roll back to it if it fails.

 

And as my PC has no drops with the ethernet cable it is most probable that with lan plugged this would have no problems also but that would mean to leave it fixed in one place.

Unfortunately the driver is not available on the Ralink driver site. According to the Device ID it is a

 

Chip Number: 1010 Chip Description: 802.11n Bluetooth 4.0

 

The wireless adapter is also bluetooth. You are going to have to keep the driver you have or get a USB wireless adapter like this one.

Just purchase a USB dongle and use it.  You can purchase one for about $12.00 US.

 

The reviews I read on Asus's  wifi adapters were not very kind.

[Solved] By disabling IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6)  and file and printer sharing for microsoft windows in the wireless network connection properties, ofc it still fluctuates a bit being wifi but seems rather reliable for now, I don't actually know if this alone has solved it or a combo of the above mentioned alterations, btw turned off Congestion Control since it seems to dedicate all bandwidth to one single app not allowing much multitasking on the bandwidth.
