G55VW - USB 3.0 doesn't work, doesn't reconize 5G networks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I cannot hit transfer speeds over 28.4MB/s with a variety of USB 3 devices/drives. I have gone to the extent of a complete fresh install with all current BIOS and drivers.



Same devices on Crosshair V ...



Have I missed something or do I have to return this for warranty?


Also, I have an ASUS RT-N66U router that supports the 5G, the laptop supports 802.11ac, whats the difference? Should this laptop be picking up the 5G signal?

'5G' probably makes a lot of people cringe. It'd be more proper to say 5 GHz N or 5 GHz AC, then people know you're actually talking about wifi.

You should be able to see the 5 GHz SSID if it's properly configured on the router.

For USB, I'd check CMOS settings before returning. If you still can't break USB 2.0 speed after ensuring proper settings and driver pack then it may be worth considering an RMA or return.

aaww there is a difference! I can pick the 5G on the cell phones, nice speeds! Big diff using the WiFi!

It is enabled in the BIOS. I know I have found on a breed of intel boards when you change settings you either have pci-e 8x and usb 3 or pci-e 16x and usb 2, I was suspecting something like this ...
