I bought this laptop yesterday, and have been having fits with the wireless adaptor (an Atheros AR928x).
After a fair amount of troubleshooting, I've discovered the laptop's wireless adaptor has a "scan valid interval" setting that ranges from 20-120 (seconds). This setting directly correlates to a periodic inability to ping to my Linksys Wireless Router. It will ping fine for as many seconds as I have the "scan valid interval" set to, and then will give me a "general failure" for a few seconds, and then go back to pinging again.
I cannot disable the "scan valid interval" setting on the wireless adaptor (as I imagine this would fix it), and I've already re-installed the driver from the manufacturor's website. Additionally, I've updated the firmware on my Linksyst WRT54G to no avail.

Re: New ASUS G50vm-x1 from Best Buy
Unfortunatley laptops have everything "built in onboard" which is to say to fix it you need to replace it. Take it back and try another one. The other option is to disable the wireless adaptor and get a usb wireless adapter to take it's place.

Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter Driver is only here First download for your brand After you start installation, I think it's everything on RUSSIAN Very first window you should choose first upper one - that means English ENJOY. P.S. Don't go here http://www.atheros.cz - it's scam.
notebooks or laptops do not have the switches it totally depends on ur adoptor ... if u are using 110 power the adoptor has to be capable of that and if 220 than too the adoptor should be capable , in the market now aday u get adoptors which handles multiple settings ... best way is call asus cust care and ask them if they have something for it or not if u want u can buy it from them or locally places like best buy and wal mart ... if u have purchsed it in US its bond to support 110... totally depending on the country wher u bought it
Go to Asus support link :- http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Over there, under General Download, select your Asus's product as Notebook, Series as G50 (you may have to scroll doen, to get the options) and model as G50V.
Then, select your operating system and click on Search.
Then, at the bottom of the items, you would see Manual : click on Manual, you will see Express Gate User Guide English Edition and ASUS Notebook Express Gate Manual, you can download each of them from here by clicking on Global, next to Download from , then input the special characters shows and click on Submit and download the manual.
no it isnt the windows 7... i have a NV54 with the same card and works like a charm. I recomend you to download the drivers for windows 7 from the official page of Atheros. here: http://www.atheros.cz/download.php?atheros=AR5B93&system=1 Or if you can update via Windows Update.
You need to know if your home network requires a password or paraphrase to allow you to connect. Also, you might have to check your settings on your router, they have to match the settings of your laptop wireless adaptor. You can try these solutions and if no luck post with more information
1) Verify if Wi-Fi WLAN interface of your notebook is OK. 1a) Check whether HW switch is ON and the wireless system service is running. 1b) Switch on the WLAN Access Point (router) SSID broadcasting. 1c) Scan WLAN networks by the notebook. Can you see your home WLAN? If not, there is HW or SW problem in your wireless adapter probably. If WLAN is visible, continue by next steps.
2) Remove all WLAN security on both sides (AP and notebook): Authentication = none/open, encrytption = none. 3) Activate DHCP server in the router and set the dynamic IP assigning on WLAN notebook interface. 4) Select your home WLAN SSID in the list and try to connect. 5) Wait and check status. Is WLAN connected? Does obtain the notebook an IP address? 6) In success case set the WLAN security.
