Well, I get the web browser but as soon as I type in a specific web address I just get the "whirring Circle" (Firefox) or the continuous "dotted line" (IE). Then after about 5-10 minutes I get told the session has timed out or, more often, the Asus just shuts down! Does that help?!
Thanks, ***** ***** what you suggest and then report back.
Sorry, having problems locating "All Programs". On my Asus "Star"t is like a window-pane. Not quite sure where to go to get "All Programs".
It tells me "Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode." I haven't a clue what any of that means!
Well, no luck I'm afraid.Eventually I got it right (Command Prompt Admin) and did just as you said but It's just the same as it was in battery mode (too slow) and fine when connected to the mains. I think you mentioned a driver or an app? maybe it's time to go down that route?
Just to be double-certain:
I clicked on "Wireless" and found the top one which is this. Is this the right one?
Well I'm afraid the internet is still no quicker as a result of downloading these items. What next? It looks like Asus has taken £28 from my account and I am no further on with my enquiry! I am not very happy.
Thank you. Just to be sure, under "Network" there are listed two Bluetooth devices plus this: "Broadcom 802.11 abgn Wireless Network Adapter"... is this what you want me to turn off its management features?
Also, to be sure, when I open "Properties" there are 6 tabs: General, Advanced, Driver, Details, Events, Resources. I notice that in the tab "Driver" I can Disable or Uninstall. Is this what you want me to do? Disable?
Well I tried that restarted and discovered that I could no longer connect to the internet! Did I switch off the wrong component or something?
As I mentioned before the wireless network card has 6 tabs. Discounting the tabs "General"", "Details", "Events" and "Resources" that leaves the tabs "Advanced" and "Driver". Under "Advanced" there is a heading "Property" and a long list of properties as well as a separate heading/option called "Value" which gives the choices "Auto", "Enabled" and "Disabled". Under the Property heading there are two which might be the ones you want me to switch off: "Disable Upon Wired Connect" and "Enable/Disable LTR". Is either of these properties the one you want me to switch off? And do I switch them off by clicking the "Disabled" option under "Value"? Or am I in the wrong place again?
I'm clearly not following your requests. I'm not sure why this should be. Maybe you are looking at a different device to the one in front of me. Your advice hasn't helped but not for want of trying. Thank you for your time and patience but I think I shall pursue some other solutions and see where they get me.
Thank you and goodbye.
