Did you look on the ASUS site for drivers? didn't mention that. Also, you can send recertified items back to Newegg for a replacement. Within 30 days.

Yeah I checked ASUS site for drivers. Downloaded every single one and tried every single one for that model. It just was a bad wireless card obviously. I already talked to them and am RMAing it for a replacement. Hopefully this next one won't have any problems.

MoM - Have you had any problems with the wireless? Mine was obviously a bad card but I was reading other reviews that were saying that the wireless would drop out randomly and that the function + WiFi key wouldn't work for them. It'd have to restarted. Thankfully Newegg's RMA is rather painless its more or less just having to wait for the replacement LOL. I still think its an awesome deal for the price. As long as I don't have any wireless problems I know my dad will be very happy with it.

I never had problems with any Atheros wireless cards. Guess you just got lucky! :P
