    Thanks

    Can't explain why but there is an opportunity for interference. There are three networks I see that are all using channel 11, yours and two others. Why this may be impacting your Zenbook and not other devices is up for debate. I would simply change to channel 8 and test.

    Please post model number of Zenbook. Thanks

    This worked for me:

    Hold the Windows Key and Press R. In the run dialog, type*regedit*and click OK. Navigate to the following path in Registry Editor,
    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WcmSvc\
    See if the*GroupPolicy subkey exists, if not with WcmSvc highlighted, right click on WcmSvc and Choose New -> Key and name it*GroupPolicy, then click*GroupPolicy*and then in the right pane, (right-click) and choose New -> DWORD (32-bit) and create value, name it as*fMinimizeConnections*and Click OK. Disconnect from your network. Now, reboot and test. Post back with the results.

    Thanks.

    Did you try Elizabeth's suggestion or the channel change?

    Their FAQ, Asus's, is down at the moment.

    Did you try their Wireless driver for Win 8.1, version 6.30.223.249 ?

    Thanks Elizabeth; I just changed it. I'll monitor my WiFi and keep you posted.

    Yes, I've changed both. I've changed the EMERITUS channel's value to 8, and the group policy for multiple internet/domain connections to '0'. I'll keep you both posted on the results.
    Thanks!

    @Ken & @Elizabeth, I was just looking at the Event Viewer to see if there was anything there, and this is what I saw:

    Click image for larger version.

    I see numerous similar events, spread out randomly every day.

    Could these events be an indicator to the problem?

    Could be but I thought you had shut IPv6 off.

    Here is another way

    Enable or Disable IPv6 in Windows
