Yes, that helped a bit (both WiFi and BT), and I also set the computer not to go to sleep by itself after a period of inactivity in the power settings.

It is acceptable, but just after wakeup, it gives up on re-connecting to the network and shows a red cross (sometimes) over the indicator. I need to re-connect manually, as it now lists available networks (yay!). It takes about 5 seconds of the swirling circle before the connection is up. A bit slow, if you ask me. But it is way better than to having to power off and pull the power socket. I anticipate a newer driver to improve performance here.

The computer resumes from sleep very fast (a second or so), so it is as if the WiFi card does not keep up.

Well, it takes two to tango.
The router is an Asus RT N66U running stock firmware. Maybe things would improve with e.g. Tomato.

Were you successful in your attempts?

Did you try installing the driver software from only the supplied DVD onto a fresh windows? IMHO, it is much trickier to select the needed drivers from the download page and install them individually. The Asus support page is really confusing. So for example, the Broadcom WiFi card includes BT as well, and when I looked into the WiFi and BT drivers on the download page (now about two months ago), the WiFi driver appeared to include BT support as well.
Still, WiFi and BT were listed as separate drivers.
:-S

Based on that and a few failed attempts to go for the latest at first, I resorted to start with the DVD versions.

No, unfortunately not.

I tried doing a driver cleanup and installing the disc drivers, that didn't work.

I rewired the cable on the motherboard to check for defects, none apparent.

The next step is to reformat and reinstall all from the driver disc, but I can hardly believe this would work. If it does, that would mean that a crushing majority of users installed using the outdated drivers disc, which I always considered an abomination.

But Ain't nobody got time for that. I'm in my pre-exam period and I can't tend to it.

Furthermore, I managed to get RAID to work which was another problem I was facing. I ran some tests and discovered that you cannot have a boot SSD running on AHCI with a RAID array on the side which blows my F'n mind! It is such a pain to implement RAID on this that I almost feel cheated.

The other problem is that my boot drive suffers from performance degradation with a RAID next to it, at least that is what my HD tune pro tests seem to imply. So Before playing around reformatting everything, I must first test the performance of the RAID with different stripe sizes (I want to set it at 64k, but I need numbers to stay on that choice).

When I'm settled on the strip size, and whether my integrated Wi-Fi is junk or not, I must figure if I want to make a boot Samsung 840Pro 256x2 RAID0 + data Samsung 840EVO 1TBx2 RAID0, or simply a boot + data Samsung 840EVO 1TBx2 RAID0. Because quite frankly, I don't even know if this board can support 2 RAID arrays at the same time...

The router is an Asus RT N66U running stock firmware. Maybe things would improve with e.g. Tomato.

No problem, glad it helped out a bit. We actually have the same router. smile.gif Are you connected on the 5Ghz? I noticed this BT/wifi card is picky with the channel bandwith when pairing with the N66U. I had some disconnects before as well but it would resume on 2.4Ghz band instead (5Ghz disappear or wouldn't connect).

Try setting both channel bandwith on the N66U the same either 20, 40 or 20/40mhz but same for both frequency. For some reason the stock firmware didn't connect on 40mhz for me and was really picky when i had mixed settings on the channel bandwith. Right now I'm using Merlin firmware for the N66U and that seems to help with stability. It might just be your router that's not pairing nicely with this BT/wifi combo card. Try those setting first, and if that doesn't help; try Merlin firmware with the same settings.

Sooooooooooo EK finally released their block for the Impact.

Can't say it looks like the Bitspower one at all, of which I prefer the aesthetics.

Can't wait to hear some numbers about it!

How so?

It was announced back in July. Considering how much time it took them to pull it out, I'd say they better have put enough R&D in it to give better performance than the Bitspower one.
