That's a $600+ motherboard!!!

I suggest you contact Asus and have them replace it under warranty.

Good news everyone! I fixed the slow internet speed problem by staying on latest wireless driver version V6.34.223.5 for Windows 7 64bit. It turned out my linksys wrt1900ac router was causing the problem with this external asus antenna. I had to change the wireless mode on my router to Mixed NG mode and the speeds were a lot faster except the ping is a little slower than usual. I usually get 10-12 ms ping. The speeds are not stable nor consistent but at least they are faster now. I connected to 2.4ghz network and the speeds are unstable and inconsistent but when I connect to 5ghz network the speeds are much more stable and consistent. I would have expected the 2.4ghz speeds to be faster than 5ghz network but I was wrong.

The screenshot with 23ms ping is the 2.4ghz network and the screenshot with 24ms ping is 5ghz network.

Ok my question is sort of solved. I still need a little more help. Why is the ping so slow? I usually get 10-12ms ping even through wifi on my other devices. Why are the speeds so unstable and inconsistent on 2.4ghz?
