Realtek RTL8723AE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC

I have a 1 month old Satellite 855 notebook. I had to perform a restore to out of box conditions and now every time it boots up, windows finds a problem with the Realtek wireless NIC and shuts it (the wireless card) down. I have found that if I go into the Windows device manager and disable it and then re-enable it, it will work until I have to reboot. How do I resolve this?

What's the full model and part numbers of your laptop? They should be on a label on the bottom.

I am dealing with the same adapter and I am unable to keep a solid connection to the N radio. This is a custom ordered laptop and I am not a Realtek fan at all but I no option in selecting my adapters when building the laptop. I contacted Realtek directly and they did respond with driver update but I am still unable to keep the N radio connection. It is an ARP issue on my end. I have switched my radio to G only and I am solid with that connection, but the work around I found is not acceptable by any means. I think Realtek has put out a crap adapter with no resolution in sight. If you have a chance, see if connecting to the G band helps with your issue.

Try reinstalling the latest Wi-Fi driver.

Usually a recovery is the standard test to determine if something is software or hardware related. You may want to try another recovery since it was after a recovery that you noticed the problem. If it still doesn't come back, I'd think it was due to hardware failure.

Did you switch the fn keys and the f keys in the bios?

I too have the same Satellite notebook with this built in Realtek adapter. It works well with my Netgear dual band router getting incredible speeds (20+) but it only sees the 2.4 wireless network. Is this incapable of seeing 5.4 networks?

I've got a 1 week old Satellite L855-S5162, PSKFUU-040003 that doesn't see N networks.
