New Intel 3945ABG Wireless Drivers+Application (5/25/2007)

Postby Benz145 » Sun Apr 01, 2007 07:26

Here are the latest drivers and software for the UX's wifi card. The default drivers that came on older UXs were pretty poor, if you have been experiencing worse than expected wireless connectivity, updating the drivers should help.

[Scroll down the page of the links and find the "Download" button.]

Update 6/19/2007 -After checking back on the downloads page, it would appear that new versions of the driver/software has been added on 5/25/2007, this is version 11.1.1.0, links below are updated. Thanks Flamand. After installing the updated drivers/software (which took a few minutes) I can't say I've noticed any performance improvements, or changes to the software, however they added a description to "HD Mode" -
In a wireless network environment where several access points are nearby, this feature will reduce interference and improve your wireless connection.
Also, I think Ad-Hoc QoS setting may be new, however I'm not 100% sure.

Superb!!! I've downloaded and installed. Worked far better than before. My WiFi signal got perfected. It's highly recommended to all Ux users in this forum. Him using the Japanese model - UX91NS. No problem installing it. But I did create a restore point before installing the driver. Anyway, I've not time the battery performance. yet. Will report as soon as I've tested it. Thanks benz145! Cheers!

It didn't take long at all to install. The two things that dgrill mentioned don't install by default, but you can run the program again, select the modify option and install either or both. I didn't see a need for creating administrator installs (for use on multiple machines) but I did install the other option.

The weird thing for me was that I tried downloading it in Firefox and it kept stalling. I tried again in IE and it downloaded so fast I almost missed it. Go figure.

It seems that it doesn't like to work after turning on from standby. The connection looks like it is connecting, but the network won't work until I turn wireless off and on.

I've actually had a similar problem, I'm not sure if its from standby/hibernate, but once and a while it seems (randomly) it can't connect to my router, it can however connect to the neighbors, and it won't connect until I reset my modem and router, its really annoying!

Hello,
I installed the V11 upgrade twice today, and every time it did not find my network after the installation any more. Reverting (twice) to V10 worked again...very strange behaviour...Even when I switched (under V11) to use windows to manage WiFi, Windows could not find the network. On the other hand, the drivers were updated to V11, and the installation went cleanly.

Any other comments on this Intel version 11 of WiFi support?

I think the Broadcom handles the ethernet connection on the UX's base, and on the included dongle, whereas this update is for the UX's wireless connection. I would recommend installing this update, though make a System Restore point before you do so, as the poster above you seemed to have some trouble with it.
