Wireless internet gets much slower when plugged into power (GA401IV)

Level 7

My wireless internet on my Asus G14 GA401IV gets much slower when plugged in to power. It goes from 800mb/s to 30mb/s. Ethernet is unaffected.


This only started happening once I moved to Europe. Perhaps it is interference from a travel adapteur? Or perhaps I have just noticed? I have checked my power settings, and the wifi card is not set to power save when plugged in. I have also already disabled the wireless casting feature, as was reccomended elsewhere.


I am baffled as to why the WiFi get so much slower when plugged in, whereas ethernet remains unaffected (phone is also unaffected).
