ASUS USB N66 drivers not identical to Ralink

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was trying to find the newest drivers so went to Station-Drivers to check. Unfortunately although the version I'm using is claimed to be 5.0.0.0 (1.0.0.7 on ASUS's Website) it seems as though the newer drivers don't support 5ghz mode. When I install 5.0.7.0 I see all 2ghz channels but no 5ghz even though it shows up as an option in device manager. Clearly although wikidev claims the chipset is the Ralink RT3573 there seems to be a major difference in the driver from ASUS and them. It's rather annoying honestly but I can live with it if Windows 8 would STOP suggesting my driver is out of date, seriously not even Microsoft can tell the difference so *** ASUS!

Have you tried getting the drivers directly from Ralink/MediaTek? The closest I could find were RT3572 (latest from 2010) and RT357X (latest from 2012)

You have to submit a name and email address, but you can just put some bogus thing in there, hit "Submit" and you're good to go.
