Windows 7: Win7 connection icon shows 802.11n, but ASUS utility shows 802.11ac!

26 Feb 2017   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Win7 connection icon shows 802.11n, but ASUS utility shows 802.11ac!

Win7pro 64bit, USB-AC56 adapter plugged into USB3.0

The windows connection icon in the task tray shows an 802.11n connection.

But the ASUS "WLAN Control Center" utility shows 802.11ac.

Are they both trying to control the connection?

ASUS is a nightmare for driver installation.
