Wifi problems after reformatt

I recently reformatted my pc, and i use the Asus rog z390 formula with wifi built in. I installed the latest drivers however the Wifi driver wont install, and sometimes my wifi on my pc goes really slow or disconnects, where as my phone ipad etc all still have wifi as normal.

Is this something to do with a faulty Management engine interface driver? or bios?, So to iterate the problems im having are:

-Reformatted pc yesterday, installed latest drivers off asus mobo website

-Cant install wifi driver when previously this has installed fine

-bluetooth driver not installing properly either

-this is causing my wifi to not work properly, havnt tested bluetooth

-i think its due to management engine interface faulty driver on asus website.

Can you elaborate on what is going wrong with the driver install? Is there an error message?

If you think there is an issue with the ASUS IME driver you can uninstall it and let Windows choose one. I had the opposite problem with one of my laptops. The Windows IME driver had issues with my wifi so I had to manually install a better one.

Hello and thanks for replying, I don't think its the management engine interface anymore but there is a problem somewhere.

I downloaded the latest WIFI driver "V21.40.1.4 WIN10 64BIT" from https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-XI-FORMULA/HelpDesk_Download/ but this wont even install, so i tried a previous driver version from the same website but they wont install either. I left it with the intel driver but every now and then it either goes to around 0.5mb/s (when usually its at 74mb/s) or stops working.

For now i am using an external wifi dongle with which its working fine. i think the wifi driver needs to be fixed so i can get my built in mobo wifi adapter to work

Please let us know what your system consists of.

What does this mean? You still haven't elaborated. Is there an error message? Does it just crash? If so what happens up to the point of crashing?

When i click asusinstall, nothing happens.

I used the other install option (was either install.bat or setup cant remember) and a dos screen came up, but it said cannot install or installation is blocked. ive had it on the mobo wifi all day and nothing odd happened, but sooner or later the speed will slow down again by 90% or it will lose connection.

Before i updated my mobo bios to 1305 and installed the latest drivers i had none of these problems

Try right-click > Run as Administrator

I would do that with both the exe and the batch file to see if it makes a difference.

without using .exe file , we can easily install all drivers , only we need .inf , .cat , .sys files and must be in 64bit compatible

Thanks for the replies, havn't had a problem with my wifi for a third day now so i think something may have been updated since then, i have done a reformatt since then so maybe it was a bad windows install.

i will try the run as administrator suggestion if it does come back
