I recently bought an Asus G60VX, and for a while it worked fine.
Before I forget, the relevant specs:
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
-Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN
-Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
I don't know if it was after an update or a reboot, but all of a sudden it was like the WiFi switch stopped working entirely. None of the networks I'm close to were being recognized and Windows said the problem was that Wireless capability was disabled.
My original solution was to just wipe everything, since it was a new laptop and came pre-configured I thought that something might have gone wrong with the original installation. This fixed the problem, but it wasn't long before it happened again. This time all I had to do was reboot.
I've tried Disabling/re-enabling the device, uninstalling and rebooting, reinstalling drivers, none of which provided any permanent solution.
It looks like there's a newer version of the driver for the Intel WiFi, but beyond that does anyone have any ideas?
