This is the 2nd thread I've decided to open regarding this specific adapter, that unfortunately it was already placed inside my new notebook.
Really I've no other words to describe it in a "polite" way than AWFUL. It's awful and don't try to tell the opposite. THAT'S IT, no doubt about.
I've tried new drivers and they don't work, old drivers and were stable for a short time, but during last months I've faced and still facing the same, endless, frustastring situation of Wifi drop of connection, lags spikes and random slow-down.
At the moment I'm using the driver 126.96.36.199, U-APSD disabled, bluetoth AMP disabled (eheh it DOESN'T WORK, never worked), "ScanWhenAssociated" exception added with regedit, unchecked power saving mode and still I've problems. And I've Windows 8.1.
The router is NOT the problem as I've other devices connected and work without slow-down or other issues..so must be this adapter.
Seriously ? All of us customers who have faced this problem, that are still waiting for a solution after almost 2 YEARS should ask you a refund, because you're selling a broken product, something that shouldn't be sold, at all.
For instance now I've 2000ms, 500kb/s with the download test !!! 500 !!! Are you KIDDING ME ? Neither in 2000s there was a so damn slow connection. While surprise ! with my other notebook, or friends' ones I've the max speed (8 mb/s in my zone) and always stable, not a single drop.
And this happens not always of course, but 30 % of the time, so if I'm having a conversation online I've problems, if I'm downloading something that I need this leads to a failed download, etc etc..
So, PLEASE, could you tell me what to do ? What to post here to find a solution ?
I'm trying to stay calm as much as possible but as I usually use this pc for my job then you can understand while I'm so stressed. I'm near to a broaking point and I won't wait so long before to ask to Acer to change it, of course with warranty. Better than nothing, but I won't give this adapter other possibities. I don't want workaround, I want what I paid for and it's legit.
I'll wait and answer and please not a link, because I can use google on my own.
My router is a Netgear N-150, set on channel 6(tried even 1 and 11), WMM enabled, mode up to 54 Mbs.
And just deleted/reinstall driver and software for wifi/bluetooth and still here I'm, with the same situation, with the same stress. Funny I tried to download a driver from your site (90mb) and wasn't even able to download it..is that normal ?
Here's a screenshot to let you understand how weak and terrible is this adapter.
And here's what happened after 1 single minute:
