Does anyone know if there is an AC Wireless card out to upgrade to on my G75VW?
I have the Asus Router that supports AC but my G75 doesn't have the card.
I knew about this awhile back when I purchased the Router but was checking to see
if there is now one that can be put in my G75.

Please let me know if anyone does

_Thanks

Replacing the slower router will obviously give you better performance. As for the choppy behavior on the current router, there are a lot of variables when it comes to network performance.
I would tend to assume that the upstream conditions on a FiOS line would be good and that the latency you experience when running at the router's max speed was the result of performance issues with the router. Now that it's maxed out, behavior you haven't seen before might become apparent.
When things are choppy, are you streaming from the Internet, or from a media server on the network?


Just when playing FIFA14 online. The game isnt very demanding wth my G75V given my nvidia 670m gtx 3gb. With the stock card I didnt experience any choppy behavior, so I figured there must be some settings I can/should play around with now that I am using an AC card.

I noticed on the connection screen it shows IPv6 Connectivity as no internet access. Sounds strange, hope that isnt what needs to be fixed.

Asus RT AC66U router came today... connection speeds of 866.7mpbs. Time to start experimenting with settings to get the maximum possible out of this thing. If a self-taught novice can figure this out, anyone can.

Newegg.com has it for $30.00 as well. I just ordered one myself. Gonna try it out in my Razer Blade 14". I know it is not a ROG, but I can still fill you guys in with how it works compared to the Killer 1202 that came stock in my Blade.

Bluetooth works fine on my G75VW. I just don't use it.
Check to make sure you don't have any of the old card's bluetooth drivers left on the system. I've seen a lot of forum posts about old drivers fouling the installation in one way or another.

I did a quick removal of the atheros drivers I could see, but I didn't check the delete from system box. I'll give that a try. Thanks.

I upgraded my BestBuy 1x1 wifi card to the Intel N-6235 a few months ago. It works really well, but getting access to the card location is tough. However, the new card works great, even better with Windows 8 than it did with Windows 7. It does drop it's speed on router using WEP encryption. I have a Netgear WNDR4500 so I get about 270 mbps but at my in-laws it just gets 74.

I had no problems with the install of the card using the Intel drivers. Bluetooth and Wifi work well, just avoid any wifi drivers for Win8 but the console is needed to use the wifi key o the top row in W7. If not a clean install, uninstall drivers before shutting down to replace the card.

guys, doesen't the intel 7260 comes with two antennas?
is the gt75vw compatible with this?

Because its time to upgrade my wifi card..

Yes. The G75VW's two antenna just plug right into the two ports on the card.
