Lost Wireless MVE

Wireless connectivity has suddenly stopped dead on my mPCIe card. The card has worked flawlessly over the past year and saw signals from homes 6 houses distant. Now it registers only a weak and 80% dead signal from my hotspot inches away. The laptop that I'm using adjacent to it sees all signals but not nearly as strong as the extermal mPCIe antennae commonly did.

I have daily backups and tried rolling back to no avail. I have a hot plug harddrive on this CoolerMaster Stryker so I am able to put in a barebone Win64 fresh install on which to test but that had no positive impact either.

I've opened the case and the antennae wires are all still securely in place and the board is rock solid in its mooring. The computer case is huge and seldom moved.

I've been reading through these forums and none of the solutions which are mainly jostled computer or electrical shorts apply. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. Since the hotplug drive with the new Windows install shows the same connectivity problem then it can't possibly be the drivers at fault right

This massive machine is dead in the water without connectivity so open to any ideas.

Oh, I did belatedly upgrade to the new MVE bios but that was weeks ago and the card had worked swimmingly so I am baffled utterly.

This turned out to be a driver issue. I remain baffled as to why the solution worked but it did. I had to remove all drivers associated with the network adapter and then reinstall. As I began at 2AM, perhaps I was punchdrunk the first few times I did this and may have, after disabling the adapter neglected to check off the REMOVE SOFTWARE box on the popup that follows the disabling adapter choice.

It was actually ASUS phone tech support that aided with this. Kudos!

I lost Bluetooth on my MVE a couple of weeks ago. I had to totally remove the BT drivers and reinstall. I blame Windows updates. :mad:

Yes, Windows update is a sure killer. In my case, I believe it was a VMWare installation which I must now reinstall but at least I know the fix if things go pear-shaped.
