802.11n adapter stuck at 54mbps - May 31st 2009, 01:20 PM

Hey,

I recently bought an Asus X59GL-AP007c, which has an Atheros AR928X wireless adapter built in.
I've been using it fine for a few weeks, and it's run at 300mbps perfectly, but today I was about to set up Internet Connection Sharing with my 360 and decided to try out the network profile manager that came with it - Asus Net4Switch.

I set up the primary profile as expected, and it said that the speed was 300mbps, but as soon as I activated the profile, it got stuck at 54mbps - and now it won't go any higher.

What I've tried:
- Deactivating the profile
- Deleting the profile
- Activate and login to Administrator account
- Checking device settings
- Removing Net4Switch
- Rolling back the adapter drivers
- Updating to the newest one again
- System restore to yesterday

Things to try:
- Searching the registry for any changes (System Restore would have removed anything left over by Net4Switch)
- Contact Asus - Done
- Rant in my blog about how stupid this is - Done

Things I don't want to try:
- Restore the laptop back to manufacturer default.
-It's a Sunday, I wanted to chill out and relax. I've had the whole week off college and it's worked fine. Tomorrow I have to go back and I don't have the time or the patience to reinstall Vista.


Any other ideas?

I was gonna suggest checking the registry anyways since there's some things that even system restore can't fix, if it's especially sloppily coded, but first of all, what did Asus say when you contacted them?

No reply as of yet...They have a system similar to HelpLink - 48 hours until it becomes urgent.
I haven't gone through the registry, because I have no idea where to start.

Maybe find one of those programs floating about that find the 'leftovers' from sloppily installed programs and get rid of them?

Thanks for the idea. I used McAfee's clean up tool (it's part of the security suite), but to no avail

Just to update - I managed to fix it
Had to uninstall the Atheros application, which removed the drivers and the network profile. Reinstalling it fixed it.
Just in case someone finds this thread you can find a more detailed version of how to fix it in my blog.
Mods - feel free to remove the link if you want.

Well, since you have fixed it, I shall close this now. Yay!


I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.
