    AC7260 Razer Blade 2014

    JonChoivo

      Hey guys,

       

       

       

      Recently got a razer blade 2014, wonderful laptop other than this damn card.

       

      Connection to any kind of wireless hotspot is usually out of question. If it works, it last literally 2 minutes. I have tried most of the suggestion here but they dont seem to be working too well for me.

       

      please help.

          Operating system?

          What driver?

          You've tried "most" of the suggestions here.  Which ones?  What are your current settings?

          Do you have a router/modem at home?  Dual band?  What settings?

           

          This card works if you get it right, but in order to help you, you have to show us where you're at.

            i apologize, never had this kind of problems with a computer before.

             

             

            Windows OS 8.1 64bit

            On the router,

            i have honestly no idea what kind of router they are using as it is a kind of public wifi in my area, where a few of my neighbours decided to pool together for a connection as they dont use much bandwith (or at all) The router is in a neighbours house, but so far, no laptop have ever had a problem with connecting with it other than this one.

             

            these are the few things i could glean
            protocol: 802.11n

            security type: wpa2-personal

             

            Using the PROset tools to run the diagnostic test, it failed its ping test: No response: Default gateway,DHCP server


            thanks for the help.

              Your settings match mine with two exceptions:  I use roaming aggressiveness "Medium", and I have U-APSD support "Enabled".  The latter may not matter.  You see it both ways on functioning cards.  I'm also using 17.12 and that's the best driver released in over a year.  In my usage experience, anyway.  Also, you could try uninstalling ProSet in Control Panel, and just let Windows manage your wireless.  Works for me. 

               

              Based on this, I'd say your bottleneck is in the router.  If the security protocol is TKIP, then there it is.  If it is, get it switched to AES.

               

              Another issue might be that the router is swamped by other connections going on in the neighborhood.  Do you see a lot of possible connections?  Google search for an app called inSSIDer.  Install that.  There's a free version.  It will show you all the wireless traffic around you and whether you're getting cross-traffic with other wireless points.  If so, you can change the channel to try to isolate your traffic from others.  On the 2.4 band, you want to use 1, 6, or 11, and everybody seems to want to default to 1.  So try channel 11.  Or whatever, based on what you see from inSSIDer.  It's a great tool.

               

              Your best solution:  get your own dual band device and use the 5 band on AC.

                the data encryption on the router is AES-CCMP. Ill try the solution recommended. Thanks alot.

                  here is the info ive gotten from the inSSIDer software.

                   

                  signal:-76
                  channel: 7+3

                  max rate: 300
                  802.11:n
                  Vendor: D link

                   

                  the connections seems to come from the 2.4ghz band exclusively.

                   

                  Once again, thank you for all the help.

                    So how many other points are you sharing air with?

                     

                    Also, those aren't optimal channels.  1, 6, or 11, keeping as far away from other connections as possible.

                      if you mean overlapping, it is 2

                       

                      as far as i know there is 2 computers connected to the network. Me and my neighbour.

                        There are two other access points overlapping yours?

                          yeap.
                          Its usually 2-3 overlapping.

                            Ok, there's interference there.  So to fix that, you want to pick a channel that moves your access point away from theirs.  They're intruding from the low end of the channel scale, so move your access point to the right by selecting a higher channel number.

                              Ad Hoc Channel 802.11 b/g  8


                              something like this?

                                No, put it up there on 11.  Move it so that your network left leg (blue) is not touching the intruding red legs from the left.

                                    Id suggest you dont update the driver.
