    "Can't connect to this Network"


    Hi,
    I bought an Asus G75vw couple days back with windows 8. Everything was working fine except that i couldn't connect to my wireless router. It had a WEP encryption. After I entered the Network Security key, I Kept on getting "Can't connect to this network", troubleshooting didnt help either. Then I updated all drivers from Asus support website and it connected after a restart. I was quite delighted but the next day again i got the "cant connect to this network" message. So I changed my encryption to WPA2-PSK (AES) and even updated the firmware of my router. Still no luck. I have googled around a lot but couldnt find any proper solution.


    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I've also seen this on a few machines and it is happening with WPA security and if the wireless is unsecured. I think it may be a driver issue, I'm just not 100% positive as of yet. Any help is appreciated.

    I think it's the Atheros card. I managed to get it to work with an old driver but as soon as it restarted it failed again.

    I also used the old driver. It connects but after a restart i get the same problem again
    I think its a problem with Qualcomm Atheros AR9485Wb-EG Wireless Network Adapter. I try updating and it says I already have the latest version. I dunno how long i'll have to wait for an official update that corrects this flaw.

    Funny thing is, I go to Device Manager-> Network Adapters -> right click on Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter and select uninstall, it asks me if i want to delete driver files, i click yes. and a red X mark comes on my network icon saying no device found, I restart my system and the stupid Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter is still there!!! I just uninstalled it and it still shows its there! This thing is driving me crazy !

    Maybe the 10.0.0.67 will work, say's it's for Qualcomm Atheros AR9485Wb-EG and Windows 8. You need to use WPA2 with AES encryption for these types of drivers.
