The only other thing that comes to mind is security/av software interfering.
The only thing that would be a sure fire check of that would be to temporarily remove said software and reboot the system.

It seems like it could be a good idea to check for interference from neighbor's WiFi networks. I'd install InSSIDer, and change the channel on your router if there are competing networks.

Also may be worth playing with the orientation of the antenna on your router, if it has one, to see if it improves your reception.

I am having this same EXACT problem with the same laptop. I am in the US. It is so frustrating because i can't imagine with the issue is. My drivers are up to date. Other wireless devices are able to connect just fine. I do get an error message telling me there is an issue with my modem (Ubee) but the modem must be fine if it works for the other laptops in the house. Asus says I need to send the unit in to them but I have a gut feeling this is a small issue that I'm over looking. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I actually had a smartphone that was doing this. It turned out the wifi itself was bad.
Replacement phone fixed the problem.
