Dual Band network card connection issues.

by Lepro123 / July 6, 2015 9:07 AM PDT

Hello there i seem to be having an issue with my new dual band network card with the connection to game servers, at the moment i'm currently running it on 2g with my isp which seems okay connecting to game servers, however when i connect to 5g the connection constantly drops to game servers but the connection for general browsing/downloading/updating patches for games is fine just the connection to the actual servers.

I installed it straight from the disk that came with the network card and it is connected the correct part on my motherboard, is there a setting that could have changed with the network settings?

Btw the card is the Asus pce-n53 pci-e adapter dual-band wireless-n600.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

(NT) you are surrounded by game servers?

No it is a home connection.

Seems to be fine now on a 2g connection no drops solid ping as well, might just not be compatible with 5g, although my router should be as it is the super hub and has it written on it.
Would it be worth contacting my isp?

assuming you are talking then about....

games across the internet, then none of that makes much sense. The only problem would be in your computer or router and most likely some limiting factor set for "n" in the router settings. I would look through those settings first. Most likely would perhaps be some speed limit aka data per second setting and the game sites then see a slower connection and refuse it.

If there's another wifi signal in the area using the same router too, then that signal might be hitting yours up some. "n" uses a wider bandwidth than "g" and that can lead to greater wifi interference.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
