ASUS WLAN Wireless Driver contains all the necessary system files that will tell your OS how to take full advantage from all connectivity features present in a wide variety of ASUS networking hardware used not only to connect your PC to the internet but also serve as the crucial communication node in your home or business wireless network.

If the Intel® wireless adapter you are using, please upgrade your driver to Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software version = 20.70.0 (or higher version) to resolve the connectivity issues in 802.11ax routers.

Officially built, tested and deployed to worldwide users, ASUS WLAN wireless driver package enables the proper functioning of your WLAN equipment and offers much more configuration options and advanced features that it is present in generic drivers that can be automatically loaded by your Windows OS when it recognizes some (but not all) of ASUS wireless hardware accessories.

One of the core limitations of generic Windows drivers is not only just limited support for advanced features and a more user-friendly interface for managing network connections but also a lack of optimizations for establishing full speed network connectivity, lack of security features that can protect your PC against unauthorized access.

Official drivers are all tested to enable users access to maximum attainable speeds that ASUS network hardware can achieve, providing you with a seamless network experience for novices, home enthusiasts, and business users. It is also highly possible that Windows OS will not even be able to detect and utilize any feature of your ASUS Wireless accessory (both external or internal or fused directly to your motherboard) without the presence of the official driver.

Since drivers are optimized for highly specific hardware and software solutions found in communication gear, it is very important to only install the driver package that perfectly fits the exact model number of ASUS WLAN hardware. In addition to a model name you also need to match the exact Windows OS version, which includes the 32-bit and 64-bit version.

While some drivers made for Windows 7 can also work on Windows 8, 10 or 11, the manufacturer always recommends that users install the driver that is made and certified for use on their OS version. Thankfully, chances for installation of wrong drivers are reduced whenever you use the automated installer, since it will clearly showcase you the model and OS version they are optimized for, and in some cases refuse to install if their target hardware is not detected on your PC.

If during the use of your ASUS WLAN hardware you notice communication issues, loss of detecting of WLAN hardware, or other software faults, you may need to refresh your drivers. This can be done either by reinstalling the ASUS WLAN wireless driver installation package or even better, finding a newer Driver version that introduces optimized system files, security upgrades, updated user-facing UI elements, or even new apps for better management of home/business networking features.

  • Compatibility: The drivers are typically designed to work seamlessly with ASUS wireless network adapters and devices, ensuring optimal compatibility and performance.
  • Performance: These drivers often come optimized for the hardware, potentially offering better performance and stability compared to generic drivers.
  • Features: It may include additional features or utilities specific to ASUS hardware, such as signal enhancement, network prioritization, and customization options.
  • Support: ASUS typically provides regular updates and support for their drivers, addressing issues, improving compatibility, and adding new features over time.
  • Integration: It may integrate well with other ASUS software or utilities, providing a unified and streamlined user experience.
  • Limited Compatibility: It may not be as compatible with non-ASUS hardware, potentially limiting options for users with mixed hardware setups.
  • Dependency: Users relying solely on ASUS drivers may face challenges if they switch to non-ASUS hardware in the future, as these drivers may not offer the same level of compatibility or support.
  • Update Frequency: While ASUS typically provides updates for their drivers, the frequency and timing of these updates may vary, potentially leaving users waiting for bug fixes or improvements.
  • User Preference: Some users may prefer using generic drivers or third-party alternatives for greater flexibility, customization options, or compatibility with a wider range of hardware.

In summary, ASUS WLAN wireless drivers offer tailored support and optimization for ASUS hardware, but they may come with limitations in compatibility and flexibility compared to generic drivers or third-party alternatives. Users should consider their specific needs and hardware setup when deciding whether to use ASUS WLAN drivers.
