    ASUS and Acer have both using this version in their newly shipped laptops

    That's the version I've been using for awhile, explains why mine has been working. Thanks for the info.

    my pleasure, also remember, if you do not use Bluetooth like me, turn it off using the PC Settings > Network > Airplane mode

    that will prevent any interference from the Bluetooth Signalrs for better ping on your WiFi signal and no disconnections

    Well, knock on wood, I use Bluetooth mouse and all has been working fine for quite some time. Hope I haven't just jinxed myself.

    Are your power options set to keep the wireless adapter on? No sleep and maximum performance.
