Sorry for the delay, somehow or another this post got lost in the shuffle.

So, just in the name of being thorough: You have set the NIC to AP mode, made sure that both phones/tablets/laptops are using the 2.4GHz band to connect, and even after doing all that, you can only connect one device at a time? If I take this issue over to some of our motherboard people, they're just going to ask me these same questions, so may as well save everyone some time and get them answered now.

Yes you are absolutely correct. After doing all that only one device will connect.

Okay, I had someone else take a look, and it seems I neglected to ensure that you are running the latest version of the Wifi Go and AI Suite software downloaded from the Asus website. If that still doesn't do the trick, then it'd be helpful if you could give us some specifics about the devices you're using. Maybe even some screenshots showing the configuration of those devices.

And I'm going to be gone until Monday, so if you want to just send me a reminder PM when you've updated the thread, it should help keep me from losing track of it.

Chances are it's working like its supposed to and wasn't made for multiple devices. I will have this motherboard on Wednesday so I will let you know if it works for me.

I only have one smart phone though, maybe I can use my laptop or if I can pry my girlfriends iPhone out of her hands I can try that too. But yeah I just ordered that motherboard and an i5-3570K so once I get it up and running I will try it out.

Hey guys, mind if I revive this thread with a similar issue ?

I built a new system with the P8Z77-V Pro, at first I was using a wireless router in my home but after a gravity related incident it crashed... literally biggrin.gif

So I thought, why buy a new one, my board's wifi engine is supposed to broadcast an AP I can use for my phone & laptop... but how the heck do I get it to work ?

After installing the most up-to-date drivers in existence (done @ initial system install) , the freshest possible version on the Asus AI Suite II 2.01.00 (included wifi go 1.02.08 & wifi engine 1.01.03) (installed after my router's dreams of achieving flight failed whistle.gif) :

1. I start Wifi-Go
2. Select "Wifi Engine" in tools tab
3. Select "AP Mode"
4. enter an SSID and password
5. For "Internet Connection Sharing" I choose "Local Area Connection"
6. I click on "Enable"

Then when I connect my laptop to the network (the one i just created), i detects it, connects but cannot aquire the IP address. My android phone detects it, connects but gets no connection to the internet.

Did I skip something ? Possible issue between atheros and intel adapter ? Is there a shadowy Bios option to switch on between 11:59 and midnight on a full moon to make it work ?

Help pls wackosmiley.gif

-- Edit -- :
Before writing this post my phone would say "connected" but have no connection to the internet through the Asus wifi network, now i can't even retrieve an IP address.
