    Wi-Fi problem (Intel Dual Band AC8260)

    This is my first post here so I'll try doing my best integrating myself here and hope you'll help me to some problems I have to Windows 10 Home edition.

    I bought last week a new wonderful laptop Asus ROG G752VY-GC178T. I dislike Asus for not creating drivers for Windows 7 too (kinda not like W10 as much as W7). Anyway, it seems that everything works normally except Wi-Fi!

    I got 2 routers, an Asus RT56u and a TP-Link WR841ND.

    When I'm connected over wi-fi to the Asus router, I have absolutelly no problem with, but when I'm connecting to TP-Link router, it's start drop the connection after I start download something. The error is about Gateway. It's very strange because the TP-Link is good enough for other devices and I had no problem with.

    I did the following:
    - Updating wi-fi drivers
    - Rollback (to the original ones)
    - disabled AV/Firewall
    - Reset Wi-fi card many times and router with no clue.

    I have no ideea why it's problematic to this router to connect, all other devices has no problem while dowloading at high speed so I guess the problem is from the OS.

    PS: The TP-Link router has openWRT firmware and I believe this has nothing to do with my problem like I said above, all other devices works perfectly.

    My other thought was that the Intel wi-fi card is incompatible with TP-Link router? or is too good for that kind of router? I doubt that.

    Sorry for my english and hope you have a solution for this..

    Thanks in advance!

    That TP-Link had some major issues. It was originally what Sam Knows was using for their "White boxes". Just get a decent Access Point.

    Ok, I'll get a decent Access Point but I'm wondering if I take my laptop to connect to different networks and they have a cheap router my laptop start doing the same issue. I don't think this is normal, It must works to all kind of routers..

    Get the Engenius ECB350 and a POE adapter. It is right now $70 at Newegg. I have it and can go at least 100' from my house and still have a signal.
