Hello Haziq,

We have reviewed the report attached, but did not find any immediate problems with your drivers or settings.



We did note the low signal strength and very low connection rate. However, this may be related to your laptop's antennas. It's possible that the antennas may not be connected properly, or may need to be switched (Main > Aux and Aux > Main).



Best regards,


Carlos A.
