Above adapter is new-ish. It was working fine; now it's hiccupping.
Wireless network is fine - both my laptops get on without a problem.
The Edimax PCI-E adapter:
a) can't connect, or
b) has limited connectivity, or
c) has full connectivity but no web pages work, and the router can't be pinged, or
d) works (for a short while)
The above options are seen pretty much evenly, except for the last one which achieves disproportionately low representation.
Have attempted to uninstall/reinstall drivers. Have attempted to delete all profiles. Have seriously considered ripping out the PCI-E and throwing it into the next-door neighbours garden, but fear this may damage the motherboard.
Any help, solutions, or shared-Edimax-rage-experiences gratefully received.
I am having a similar problem with this card. Someone on amazon wrote a review of this card and said to try downloading the latest drivers from the website. But the version i just downloaded is not any newer than the ones i had already.
same for me, edimax causes freezing and crashing of windows explorer, like i'm running out of RAM. also, says i have internet access but I clearly don't.
I am sure it is edimax, cause i borrowed a USB wifi dongle which is working fine.
i want to rip this thing out as well and throw it against the wall. I have written to Edimax and complained but we will have to see what they say.
I have seen simlar Edimax messages out there. another similar gripe on this forum says changing AES to TKIP works but it didn't for me.
