I was doing some more testing and found that close to the router (like 8 feet away), I got about 80mbps, but that's to be expected. I know the card isn't broken, but it must have issues with range or something. 10 more feet away from that, upstairs, and all the sudden my 2.4ghz speed is 4mbps and 5ghz is non-existent (around .2mbps). This makes no sense at all. As I mentioned before, my brother's laptop, running on the Killer gets 40mbps in the same location. Another thing I did out of frustration is uninstalled the ProSet software and drivers, reboot, and let Windows 8.1 install its own. After that I did another test and my wifi speeds near the router were at 113mbps. Well, yeah that's great, but what's the point of having wireless if I have to be next to the router? I might as well just plug into the ethernet then. I've yet to test the default Windows 8.1 drivers in my room again. I'll report back when I do. I'm still looking for advice on this. I'm seriously thinking of just buying an external USB adapter, even though I really don't want to. It seems unnecessary though. I don't understand how (if it IS a driver issue) how you could release hardware without having working drivers. It boggles me...
Thank you. I will.
I was actually going to at first, but thought that maybe it should be a different thread entirely since I'm not experiencing quite the same issues.
