    Wireless AC-3160 problems resolved

    lew5240

      My new Dell laptop came with this adapter and for days I tried to make it work.  It would constantly drop DNS even though the IP address had the proper DNS server, reconnecting for a while after ipconfig release/renew.  I tried all the suggestions posted in the 3160 threads.  Finally, after several drivers and configuration changes, I replaced my old Linksys WRT54GS and all the problems went away.  This adapter just doesn't work with this old single band (2.4) router.  It's a shame because all my other devices (6 of them) work fine with it.

       

      It works well with the new router (Linksys e2500) btw; no complaints.
