I had this problem before with the first card I had and Asus had me RMA it. Surely this couldn't have happened twice? I have the latest driver (1.0.9.0) so it shouldn't be the driver.

More about : valid configuration

Update: I halfway fixed it. I updated the firmware on my router than the 2.4 GHz signal now works. I still cannot connect to the 5GHz signal without it having the problem above.
